We have a very limited amount of accommodation specifically for families and couples, which is made available on a first-come, first-served basis. As these properties are available for longer lets - up to three full years, or the entire length of a student’s course - they are not always available at the beginning of each academic year.
Couple and family-friendly accommodation is available in the following location:
There are two fully-furnished compact bungalows in the Student Village, each with two bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen and bathroom. They are close to Talbot Campus and are very close to the nursery. The rent falls within Local Housing Allowance (LHA) levels for two-bedroom accommodation for those student parents who wish to claim LHA/Housing Benefit. Contact the Residential Services team for further information.
Alternative accommodation option for families and couples
Due to a high demand for our limited family and couple accommodation the other option for students is to search and secure accommodation in the private sector. The are many local private lettings agencies that advertise year round. BU are unable to recommend any one specific agency but you can conduct an internet search to view what is available. You can also to utilise online websites such as: rightmove, Bournecoast, Gumtree or SpareRoom.
