Dorchester House

Get ready for student life. Dorchester House is our 590-bed student residence in Bournemouth, and while you study it gives you an absolutely brilliant place to stay.

The accommodation is let exclusively to Bournemouth University students during term-time, and its location makes it easy to get around for both studies and leisure.

It’s just a 40-minute walk to the university, just 20 minutes by bike with cycle lanes for the whole journey, and well connected to the local bus routes.

Plus Dorchester House is right next to the lively city centre, and near the sandy beach. Knowing this, and with a number of nearby bars and restaurants, you’re never short of things to do.

For more about what’s going on in the Bournemouth, check out our local guide.


You can choose from a range of spacious rooms in a mix of 3-7 bed apartments and studios. Whichever you choose, all rooms are finished to a high standard.

You get a small double bed as well as an ensuite shower room, a contemporary fitted kitchen, and bedroom storage to keep all your stuff in.

Keeping you and your stuff safe is hugely important to us. So Dorchester House is only accessible with an electronic key. Plus we have CCTV and an onsite team to help you with any problems, questions or maintenance – 24 hours a day.

Bills are easy too. Your rent includes all utility bills, 100Mb broadband and Wi-Fi connection.

It’s because of all this that our well connected, fun, stylish and safe accommodation wins awards: in the  National Student Housing Survey 2014 & 2015, 22,000 students voted us the Best Private Halls Provider and Dorchester House was named the Best Individual Hall nationwide. We were short-listed for the Best Customer Service and won the Bournemouth University “You’re Brilliant!” award in 2013.
