Property features

Set at the heart of the Lansdowne Campus and only 10 minutes’ walk from Bournemouth’s sandy beaches, Purbeck House is a vibrant city centre home to more than 500 Bournemouth University students.

All rooms here at Purbeck House come with their own private bathroom. Most are arranged in cluster flats, which means you’ll share your kitchen and lounge with flatmates. If you’d rather live independently, ask about one of the small number of studio rooms available.

When you need a break from your room but you don’t want to leave home, you can head to the spacious common room. There you’ll find free pool, ping pong, and table football, as well as comfy sofas and a TV. There’s also an outdoor courtyard for grabbing some fresh air.

Another great thing about living here? ResLifeBU. That’s the scheme we run with Bournemouth University to welcome and support you during your time at Purbeck House. From socials and events to wellbeing support and skills sessions, your ResLifeBU resident assistants and welfare coordinators will help you get the most from your new home.

From here, the Talbot Campus is a 12 minute Unibus ride away. Bournemouth train station and the beautiful seafront are both less than 10 minutes’ walk away, and the city’s buzzing nightlife - including the Old Fire Station SU nightclub - is right on your doorstep.
