Study locations

We have two campuses - Talbot and Lansdowne. Both campuses are situated within easy reach of the vibrant centre of Bournemouth and the town’s award-winning beaches and gardens.

Talbot Campus is our main site, where you will find a wide range of facilities including the library, the Student Centre, sportBU, Dylan's Kitchen & Bar, and several cafés. There's onsite accommodation in our Student Village and it's also where many of our support services are based, including our medical centre and Faith & Reflection Service.

Lansdowne Campus is located a few minutes' walk from the centre of Bournemouth. This is where you will find the Executive Business Centre (EBC), home to some of our postgraduate courses in the Bournemouth University Business School, and Bournemouth House - the base for our courses in health and social sciences. We’re continuing to enhance our Lansdowne facilities too – with a brand new, £42 million building that will house our health and social sciences courses, due to open in 2020. You'll find many of our halls of residence around this area too - a short distance from the beach and the thriving centre of town. 

International students who come to study a pathway course before beginning their main degree will also be based on Lansdowne Campus, in the Bournemouth University International College facility. This building has not only been designed as a learning environment, but also features accommodation and social spaces for students.

We also have two teaching bases in Portsmouth and Yeovil for some of our midwifery and adult nursing students. 

Our partner colleges, which are located throughout Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset, all provide different learning environments and there are also opportunities for you to study overseas through our various international partner institutions.
