Halls of residence

The Arts University has over 450 rooms and studios in our halls of residence and student accommodation. Places are allocated with a priority to students living overseas and to students with disabilities/medical conditions.

The remaining rooms are allocated to those students living furthest from AUB.

Our halls of residence comprises of Madeira Road, Winton Halls, George Close and for September 2016, a new complex of 84 studios in Bath Road, Bournemouth.

Applications for 2017/18 halls of residence will open in Spring 2017.

We cannot guarantee to offer halls accommodation to all students who apply but we aim to notify all applicants by late June of the outcome of their application. Unsuccessful applicants will then have the opportunity to attend an Accommodation Day to find housemates and arrange alternative accommodation.

The rent per week is detailed on the individual halls pages and is paid termly in advance; full information of this will be included in the offer details sent to students when the rooms are allocated. Rents are inclusive of all bills. The tenancy agreements are fixed term tenancies and students cannot move out without finding another student to take their place.

Please note that applications for halls can only be accepted from students in their first year of study at AUB unless supported by our Senior Disability Officer. However, students who have completed their Foundation Diploma at AUB and are now entering their first year of a BA course can make an application for halls, but will only be considered once all applicants in their first year of study at AUB have been allocated a room.

Arts University Bournemouth complies with the UUK/Guild HE  and ANUK codes of practice for student accommodation. The UUK/Guild HE and ANUK codes were developed specifically for educational establishments. Members of the Codes are independently audited to ensure that halls of residence meet specified standards.
