Dorchester House is our 590-bed student residence, let exclusively to Bournemouth University and Kaplan students during term-time and to other students and groups during the summer months. In November 2013, our team were awarded with the Bournemouth University “You’re Brilliant!” award, nominated for by the students, as a result of their hard work to make it your home away from home.
The residence offers a range of spacious ensuite rooms in a mix of 3-7 bed apartments and studios in a great location: close to the university and town centre, and well-supported by public transport and other local amenities. All rooms are finished to a high standard, with double beds as well as an ensuite deluxe shower room and contemporary fitted kitchen. Your room also includes all utility bills and 20mb broadband connection, at no extra charge.
Dorchester House is ideally placed close to the lively town centre, near the sandy beach, Bournemouth University and a number of other schools and colleges in the area. ASDA supermarket is across the road, in addition to a variety of shops and restaurants close by. Bournemouth train and coach station is 200m away, with quick links to the rest of the UK.
The safety and security of our residents is hugely important to us and the residence is only accessible using a secure electronic key. There is 24 hour CCTV and a 24 hour staff presence, meaning our friendly team are always on-hand to help you with any problems, questions or maintenance you might require assistance with.
