There are many student residences in and around the town centre, offering you a room in a large, shared building. You will normally have a private en-suite bathroom as well, although sometimes bathrooms are shared between a number of rooms.
You can find two possibilities listed below, but these residences are independent and we cannot be responsible for your booking. Please do check everything carefully before you commit.
"The Outlook is ideally suited to students looking for quality, self catering, en suite accommodation in central Bournemouth close to the town's excellent amenities.
Following a change in ownership, the student accommodation has recently completed a comprehensive refurbishment, the work which included considerable redesign, new furnishings and decoration."
"Set within The Westover Gardens Hotel in central Bournemouth at the heart of the shopping and leisure area, overlooking the beautiful Lower Gardens and within a few minutes walk of the Pier and Beach. Students are accommodated within this newly created and newly refurbished Student Halls of residence. Our focus is 100% students all year round on an all inclusive basis.
We offer student accommodation of the highest standard. We welcome students, accommodation officers, tutors, agents or parents to visit us and to inspect the facilities. This is a family owned and run business, and we live on-site, offering total peace of mind."
Renting a room with other students can be a great experience, but you need to be careful.
Apartments or flats can be a good solution for families, small groups of friends, or executives.
