Getting around campus

Navigating your university campus can feel daunting at first, but with this handy guide to room numbering you should get the hang of it in no time.

Almost every room code at Bournemouth University is generated in the same way and will tell you exactly where you need to go.

The first letter(s) indicates the building and the numbers indicate the floor and the room. Room numbers that are hyphenated mean the first two letters indicate the building. For example:

“Where is F204?”

The F stands for the Fusion Building on Talbot Campus. The number, 204, then tells you the floor and the room – in this case, the second floor and room four.

If the letter G comes after the building code that means the room is on the ground floor. For example:

“Where is BG-G16?”

BG stands for Bournemouth Gateway Building on Lansdowne Campus. The rest of the code after the hyphen tells you that you’re looking for room 16 (PC Suite) on the ground floor.

The only exception to this system is The Sir Michael Cobham Library on Talbot Campus, which has the building code DL.
