Dorchester House

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, the Dorchester House team were awarded with the Bournemouth University “You’re Brilliant!” award, nominated for by the students, as a result of our team’s hard work to make student accommodation a 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, local amenities and with excellent transport links including Bournemouth train and coach station which is just 200m away, with quick links to the rest of the UK. All rooms are finished to a high standard, with small double beds as well as an ensuite deluxe shower room and contemporary fitted kitchen, while your weekly fee is inclusive of all utility bills, 30Mb (Free upgrade to 100MB from September 2015) broadband connection and free wifi too because life with The Student Housing Company is just that simple.

Dorchester House is ideally placed close to the lively town centre, near the sandy beach, with a number of bars and restaurants just a short walk away. It’s a 40 minute walk to Bournemouth University, and just 20 minutes by bike with cycle lanes available throughout the whole journey. When it’s time to stock up on your groceries, ASDA supermarket is just over the road in addition to a variety of shops close by.
