Res Life

What is Res Life?

Res Life is for you and your fellow students living in halls and Unilets. £1 of your weekly rent goes towards paying for the programme so we urge you to get the most from it during your time living with us. It is packed with useful, fun stuff: from food to sports, events to study tips, healthy eating to safety advice – as well as the latest on where to go and what to do. 

BU Res Life is all about creating an inclusive, friendly and supportive community in your hall or Unilet – so you can make the most of your time here.

Who is Res Life?

Well, if you're living in halls or Unilet then you are Res Life, but also look out for your student Resident Assistants, who live in your hall or local area (for Unilets). They are student members of staff who organise social activities and are a friendly point of contact if you have any questions about your accommodation or what's going on in halls, on campus or in town.

There are also Welfare Co-ordinators living on site who are there to talk to if you ever need extra guidance or advice around matters of welfare and general well-being.

How do I get involved?

If you have booked a room in one of our halls or Unilets then we will contact you about joining your hall’s or Unilet facebook page. If you already have then we encourage you to keeping checking in and using this to contribute to your commuinity and help make it the friendly and supportive place you want it to be.

These pages are also where the Res Life team will share useful and important information about your life here at Bournemouth, including all of the events and activities for you to get involved with during your time here...
