    Hi JVP,

    It wouldn't be a problem at all! An awful lot of our first year students live in Halls on our Lansdowne Campus (next to the town centre) and then hop on the bus to Talbot. The bus pass that gets you to Talbot from Lansdowne is included in the price of your first year rent, and it's about a 10-15 minute journey.

    One of our students made a vlog with her honest opinion of accommodation, so might be worth a watch!

    Hope that helps,

    Hi JVP,

    I stayed in town last year while my course was also based in Talbot campus. Don't let this put you off! Most accomodation is based in town and the majority of students who live there, still study at Talbot. There is regular university buses that run back and forth and this is included in your rent. Also as its a university bus, its packed on students so your be going to uni with your friends.

    I personally loved having my accomodation in town because it meant I was close to all the night life and town centre. Also all the halls are extremely close to each other meaning its very social (always a good thing!) and your be able to visit friends easily.

    Hope this helps and if you have any other questions feel free to ask

    Hi Azman

    My name is Amy and I am a student ambassador for Bournemouth. Sorry to hear your accomodation isn't that good. If you are still here and still having trouble talk to askBU, at the base. You can move accomodation (it has been done before) so don't give up hope!

    If you have gone back to London I wish you the best of luck in your appreticeship!

    Amy
