Exclusive for those living in the BU accommodation portfolio, ResLifeBU is a programme to help welcome, support and develop you through your first year living with us, whilst managing the health, safety and wellbeing of everybody living in the accommodation. Due to the current situation many of the social activities we will be running from September 2021 might need to be adjusted to ensure that we can deliver them safely and in line with government guidance at that time. However, whatever the situation, we are confident we can create a programme that will help you to meet people, make those connections and transition into your new life here at BU. 

The programme works around three core principles: Social, Wellbeing and Skills, ensuring that you have access to all the things you might need while living in your new home from home. Specific details on our 2021/22 programme will be released via our ResLifeBU social media so, once you've secured your room, make sure you get connected.

There will be ups and there might be downs but ResLifeBU is there to help guide you through. Watch the following video to see some of the great activities we were able to deliver to welcome our students back in September 2020.

Who is ResLifeBU for?

ResLifeBU is a programme for anyone living in BU accommodation. £1.25 of your weekly rent goes towards funding the programme, meaning it is readily accessible to you as soon as you move in. It’s for students who want to be social, students who want inclusivity and students looking to live within a supportive community.
