Hi, I was just wondering if any other nursing students were considering living in halls in September 2019 and if anyone has had an offer yet?

Hi Sophie, have you had your offer yet?

Halls are a great option but some nursing/health care students prefer to live in the NHS housing which is closer to their placement or to rent a student house with other health workers who are on placement frequently.

You can find a lot of information here, including links to HSS student housing: https://www.bournemouth.ac.uk/why-bu...ember-starters

The above link also gives you 360 degree tours and the great thing about halls is that most are located in the centre of Bournemouth town centre and only a couple of minute walk to where you'll be having your taught lectures.

If you have any questions please ask, but I hope some other 2019 nursing students see this too!

Well done!! Which branch of nursing are you doing? And do you mean which uni or halls? I'm considering Dorchester House at Bournemouth uni but I'm a bit worried about the noise as we'll have early shifts and nights on placements

Thanks! Yes I've got an offer for Mental Health Nursing :-) Do you think halls would be quite a difficult place to live as we'll have placements and early starts?

Congratulations on the offer! I can't speak for myself as I haven't lived in halls or been on regular placements but know of students who have managed to do both! For them it was about the social interaction during their first year so I really think it's important to weigh up whether being close to work or the social life (when not on placement), is more important to you.

I've found this blog written by two of our nursing and mental health nursing students that offers different perspectives: halls vs hospital accommodation.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I received an offer to study Child Nursing in September and also unsure of where to live. I know that if we chose to live at halls and commute to our placements we can claim it back but is there somewhere near around the campus where we can buy parking permits ?

Hi, although it is recommended to not bring your car to uni since we have little to no parking available ourselves, some students still choose to bring their cars and use the local public car parks, for which you can buy £70/month parking permits for parking close to halls. If you'd like to research these they're called Cotlands Road (open air) and Madeira Road (multistory).

As for parking on campus, if you're living in halls it will be easy to walk from where you live to the Lansdowne campus buildings where Child Nursing is taught. If you need to go to Talbot campus however and want to take your car there are some options available.This is what the Bournemouth University website has to say about on-campus parking:
If you’ve brought your car to University, there are several locations that you can park on Talbot Campus and several options for you to choose from. You can apply for a ‘Parking Permit’ from Bournemouth University, which are limited but if you meet the criteria for one then you have the option to buy a years permit, Full-Time Student= £58.89 and Part-Time Student= £29.45; there is the Student Village Parking (Shown on Map – Green), if you choose accommodation on campus; there’s ‘Pay & Display’ and Visitor Car parking in Car Park ‘G’, however you will need an arranged visitor permit from a member of staff to use the visitor car park.

Here's the link I took that from that has a link to apply for a campus permit.

Most students get to and from the Talbot Campus by bus. There is a special Unibus service that runs between the Lansdowne campus/ halls and Talbot campus every 10 minutes that costs £2.50 return, or you can opt to have an unlimited year bus pass included in the rent of your halls which works out at £250 for the whole year. They also do a 10 trips for £10 offer which might work out better value for you if you wouldn't be needing it all the time

Hope you find this helpful,

Laura, student ambassador.

Lots of our residents at Corfe House are Nursing and Medical students and they tell us that we are ideal for them. Located in Poole we are a little further away from the Uni so naturally are that bit quieter, and we are ideally placed within 20 minutes walk from Poole Hospital. Corfe is right next door to the bus station so its not far to get the bus to uni (and the bus pass is included in your rent - bonus!)

You're also as close as it is possible to get to a big Aldi, with an even bigger sainsbury's opposite, a 5 minute walk from the Dolphin Shopping Centre and the Lighthouse Theatre in one direction and 10 minutes from the gorgeous Poole Quay in the other direction.

It sounds like it may suit your requirments pretty well
