Bournemouth University Accommodation

We understand that finding the right place to live is really important when you’re moving away from home to come to university.

Joining us in September 2017?

The Accommodation Portal will open in April 2017. We guarantee accommodation for all new undergraduate students who have submitted their UCAS application by 15 January 2017 (UK/EU students) or 30 June 2017(non-EU students) and made BU their first choice. Students who submit a late application or apply through UCAS Extra will be able to register their interest in BU accommodation and be invited to book any remaining accommodation on a first come, first served basis.

If you’re considering postgraduate study at BU, you’ll be pleased to hear that we also guarantee a place in student accommodation for all postgraduate students, as long as you apply by the deadline (15 August 2017 for September 2017 entry).
