Accommodation

If you’re joining us this Autumn, we’re looking forward to welcoming you to your new home. Our primary objective is to support the wellbeing of our students and staff and we are actively working with accommodation providers to ensure that all necessary precautions are in place across the BU student accommodation portfolio. You can find the latest information in our Coronavirus FAQs and contract flexibility and cancellation by accommodation option.

Our campuses are closed but the Accommodation team is still available. You can email accommodation@bournemouth.ac.uk or call 01202 961671 and leave a message. Phone messages will be checked regularly throughout the day (Monday to Friday, 9am–5pm, 4.30pm Friday).


We understand that finding the right place to live is really important when you’re moving away from home to come to university. That’s why we have loads of great accommodation on offer at BU and an accommodation guarantee

Where you choose to live will depend on your level of study, when you start your course, and whether you're studying towards a degree that includes a hospital placement. Select the appropriate option below to find your 'home from home' whilst you embark on your studies with us.

You can also take a Virtual Tour to help choose your new home and view our 2020/21 accommodation price guide (pdf 149kb) to compare rental fees.

Securing accommodation for Clearing applicants

If you're an undergraduate student and applied to BU through Clearing, there's still time to register for our Clearing accommodation guarantee. You will need to apply for your place through Clearing and select us as your Clearing choice. You will also need to have chosen and reserved your room by 10am on Saturday 15 August. Choose and reserve your room through our accommodation portal.
