Be a part of Bournemouth’s student community at Cranborne House
Our student accommodation in Bournemouth is run in partnership with Bournemouth University and is located on the Lansdowne Campus.
There’s a bus stop directly outside our Cranborne House student village taking you to Talbot Campus in an 8-minute bus journey. You’ll have access to the exclusive ResLifeBU events and wellbeing programme, only available in BU accommodation, which is designed to help you enjoy your time in student accommodation to the fullest.
Cranborne House is a lively accommodation block which is home to 500 residents giving it a warm community feel. As well as being right next to the main gateway building, local amenities, the beach, and Bournemouth's town centre are all within walking distance. Should you choose to head further afield for the day, or even the weekend, there are convenient transport links nearby as well as Bournemouth train station.
We have a range of en-suite and studio rooms available to suit your budget.

Hear what other students from the Village have to say
The village is well situated in Bournemouth. It is close to the campus, a short walk from town, the beach and Asda. We also have 24/7 access to onsite student wellbeing support. The staff are very accommodating and are always available to answer any questions.
Cranborne is very community lead with loads of activities to get involved with. The village team are so kind and helpful. Jude and Adam are always up for a laugh and a chat which makes living at Cranborne feel like more of a community. If anything gets broken in our flat Sean the maintenance man will get it sorted really quickly. You get to know the village team really well, especially if like myself, you’re committed to online shopping.
