    Anyone except Corfe House as that is out the way. You kind of have to be clever about it though, seeing as I think most people will apply for Dorchester seeing as it has recently been renevated and there is more chance of you being left with unilet

    Hi JamesRoper!

    My name is Patricia and I'm a final year Law student at Bournemouth Uni and also a Student Ambassador for the Uni on TheStudentRoom.

    Cranborne is a really good place to stay, its newly refurbished and so everything is all nice (although most of the accomodation is nice anyway).

    So what's the difference between Value, Standard and Premium? Well, in my opinion, not much. The beds in the Value are a small single bed and there is less floor space, whereas the Premium has six-foot beds with a bit more floor space to manoeuvre and the Standards is a single bed and adequate floor space. There is a price difference which you can check on this page but they all have ensuite bathrooms and still share the same kitchen. So in your cluster flat, some people may have the premium, standard or valuie rooms.

    Hope this makes sense, feel free to private message me if not

    Patricia !

    Hello, I'm a student ambassador for Bournemouth University and hope that I can provide you with some answers to this.

    If you are studying on our Health and social care course including 'Child and young people Nursing' you have the option to stay in hospital accommodation at your placement location or the choice of halls and other accommodation provided by letting services.

    However, your shift patterns when on placement will fluctuate to give you the experience of a full 24- hour shift pattern including weekend and night shifts. For that reason we do recommend living closer to your placement. And additional financial support can be made available to accommodate for traveling costs.

    You can find out more about the specific accommodation for nurses here: https://www1.bournemouth.ac.uk/why-b...-accommodation

    I haven't applied yet, but I've had a look at the accommodations. From what i've seen Cranborne and Purbeck look good. A few of the other look pretty good too, but I just didn't want to list loads...
    Some of us might live together huh.

    Hi, Im glad that you like the look of the accommodation. I remember when myself and some friends wee trying to decide what halls to live in, we found going to a Uni open day was really useful. They provide tours of most of the accommodation on the day so you can really get a feel of what it would be like to live there and the different size bedrooms available.

    One feature they have recently released are virtual tours. Have you had a look at these? Also, do you live close by? If so try and have a look at them in person. I know it really helped me make my decision.

    Let me know if you have any other questions regarding accommodation or just the uni in general.

    Here's a link to the virtual tours:
