Kabir Ali (3-42) James Tomlinson (3-45), David Balcombe and Liam Dawson all claimed two final day wickets apiece.
VIEW FROM THE COMMENTARY BOX
Edward Bevan, BBC Radio Wales: "Glamorgan produced a battling performance over the four days at Southampton, but they still went down by 31 runs to the home team and to remain at the bottom of division two.
"Needing 263 to win, they were in with a chance of victory with Marcus North scoring 69 - his third Championship half-century in four innings - while the middle order also made useful contributions.
"Mark Wallace's team remain bottom, but can take heart from an improved performance, especially as they were without four of their leading players.
"They now have two days to regroup before playing Leicestershire in the next Championship game, which starts at the Swalec Stadium on Tuesday."
