Exclusive for those living in the BU accommodation portfolio, ResLifeBU is a programme to 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. £1.75 of your weekly rent goes towards funding the programme but once you get invovled you will see it is worth so much more than that to your student community. 

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 2023/24 programme will be released via our ResLifeBU social media during the summer and the team will be in touch to let you know how to get connected.
