Alternative accommodation in Bournemouth

BU’s halls of residence that are located on the Lansdowne Campus - Dorchester House, Purbeck House, Chesil House, Cranborne House and Lyme Regis House - are suitable alternatives if you will be undertaking your placements at Royal Bournemouth Hospital. You should note there is no parking at any of our halls of residence though.

One of our Unilet properties may also be suitable for you, as these are all located within easy reach of our campuses and some will be close to the hospital as well.

Additional information

All types of hospital staff live onsite, from consultants to first-year nursing students and although the Accommodation Team tries to keep the different types of resident together, this is not always possible. Due to fire regulations, overnight guests are not permitted in single rooms.

Rent is payable monthly, with an invoice issued around the 15th of each month and this must be settled within 30 days of being issued. There is a £20 lock-out charge during the hours of 4:30pm - 9:00am.
