New Undergraduates

Living away from home for the first time can be a daunting experience, especially when you need to find new accommodation.

BU Guarantee:
  • BU guarantees accommodation to first year undergraduate students who select BU as their firm choice and have submitted their UCAS application by the 15 January deadline (for UK/EU students) or the 30 June deadline (for non-EU students)*.

What happens if I miss the deadline?

Don’t worry, there is still likely to be accommodation available. However if there isn’t, there are a number of ways in which we can help you find somewhere to live, such as through the BU Lettings Service and our Homefinders event. We recommend you complete your application as soon as you can.

Studying a Nursing, Midwifery or Operating Department Practitioner course?

If you are studying one of these courses and have a placement locality other than Bournemouth or Poole, you are eligible to apply for accommodation. However, you should be aware that it may be more appropriate to seek hospital or private rented accommodation close to your placement locality as you will be subject to NHS shift working patterns whilst on placement and this will avoid unnecessary travel.
