Private Rented Accommodation

We're here to help you get settled quickly in the accommodation that's right for you.

Private Rented Accommodation

We want all of our students to live life to the full, on campus and off; to engage with the local community and have a rewarding time at AUB.

Finding the right accommodation that suits you is an important part of this experience. If you’d prefer not to live in university halls you’ll need to find accommodation in the private rented sector. Studentpad lets you search for student houses, flats and lodgings in Bournemouth and the UK. Find your perfect student house with Studentpad today.

Finding the right accommodation

Renting a house or flat for the first time can seem like a daunting experience, especially when you are not familiar with the area. However, we hope that the advice and information we provide will make it easier for you.

Student Services deals with accommodation matters – our Student Advisers are here all year round to answer any queries you may have, and offer advice and guidance on any practical accommodation issue including:

  • Guidance and information on what to look for in private rented accommodation
  • Checking tenancy agreements for private rented accommodation
  • Concerns about private landlords or the quality of rented accommodation
  • Council tax enquiries

Student Services is open from 8.30-17.00 Monday-Thursday and 8.30-16.30 on Friday and can be contacted via or 01202 363780

How do I find Accommodation?

We're not able to arrange private rented accommodation on your behalf, but there are plenty of ways to find your accommodation. AUB Studentpad should be your first port of call. This site lists all student accommodation registered with us by local landlords who have been accredited by a national association. You can browse the site to see what kinds of properties are currently available.

We don't view properties listed on the AUB Studentpad website. Only landlords who are accredited with The Residential Landlord Accreditation Scheme, Private Rented Sector Accreditation Scheme or The National Landlords Association are registered.

When looking for accommodation, view as many properties as you can to help you make the decision.

For safety reasons, never go to view a property on your own.

Remember to consider the full cost of your accommodation, including bills, contents insurance, television licences and food. For more information, check out BCP Council's handy student guide to renting.

We accept no legal responsibility or liability to any party in matters of the provision of private rented accommodation.

There are many landlords and lettings agents in Bournemouth who will have properties available for rent. If you wish to check if a landlord or letting agent is accredited or not, you can do so via the following links:

AUB does not recommend any letting agents or landlords above any other.
