    Is there anywhere to park whilst living in student halls in Bournemouth? Any quiet streets close by? If so where?

    The student halls are mainly in the town centre. There’s no free parking nearby that’s convenient. You aren’t likely to need a car to get around Bournemouth.

    Hi!

    There are some roads you can park down but on the whole, Bournemouth is very busy and therefore this makes parking (for free) very difficult.

    During my first year (I resided in Dorchester House) I opted to get the train if I was heading out of Bournemouth or jumped on a bus as there's loads of these running (and your rent in halls covers the cost of a bus pass for a year!)

    I brought my car up during first year however it was parked so far away that I couldn't see it- so if something had gone wrong with it, I wouldn't have known. Ultimately, I'd argue its much easier to leave your car at home, or at least wait until second year when parking becomes somewhat easier!

    I hope this helps answer your questions but if any m0ore come to mind, please don't hesitate in sending them our way!

    -Dom B
