The town is aware of its large student presence and makes sure there are plenty of accommodations for the students to make their time in Southside the best it can possibly be.

Southside proves to be a great place to live because of its great food scene. The streets are dotted with restaurants and bars that the locals love to hang out and socialize at. Popular spots that are great for bar-hopping includes Tupper & Reed, Kip’s Bar and Grill, The Tap Haus, and Pacific Standard Tap Room. Restaurants when hungry include Great China Restaurant, Sliver Pizzeria, Gypsy's Trattoria Italiana, Julia's Restaurant, Tacos Sinaloa, and Gypsy's Trattoria Italiana.
