    Hi,

    I have applied to study Media Production at Bournemouth Uni this coming September.
    I have been looking at different accommodation and Cranborne House seems to appeal to me because it's being refurbished and the newest house on offer, but the website doesn't give any details of it at all.
    Does anyone know anything about this accommodation? Or when the info will be released.

    Thanks

    Your best bet is probably to call/email accommodation services or tweet BU

    I emailed them a couple of weeks ago and they didn't tell me a price, although they did say that it was an 8 million pounds refurbishment, which included new kitchens, bedroom etc... And also a new common room and converted the building to gas central heating (use to be electric)

    For me Cranbourne house looks the best as it seems perfect that its newly refurbished, but I also like the double beds at Dorchester, and Lyme Regis seems nice and lively.

    I agree, I would imagine Cranborne is gonna be a popular choice for most people as its the newest, its also in quite a convenient area similar to Chesil and Purbeck. So I'm hoping its as lively as Dorchester and Lyme Regis if most people want to go there!!

    Me and a couple flatmates took a peek in @ Cranborne during the first couple weeks of refurbishments be warned the bedrooms look quite small! If I could choose all other again i'd go with Dorchester which is a bit more in terms of rent and stricter than Lyme and Purbeck (which i hear is closed next year) but in terms of size and being comfortable, I doubt theres much better student accommodation in the country than Dorchester, let alone Bournemouth...

    I know this was postedIiiii
    I know this was posted ages ago but I've applied for Media Production too at Bournemouth uni! And I know a couple of people have too and we're all interested in cranborne house too. Don't you find it annoying that you can't apply for accommodation until you have an unconditional offer though?!

    The value rooms are smaller, I think that's the only major difference.
