About the institution

The University of Bournemouth has two campuses: Talbot and Lansdowne, which are a short distance from the centre of Bournemouth. Talbot was originally a farm on which the Bournemouth College of Technology was built. It is now Bournemouth’s main campus and houses most of its main facilities. Most halls of residence and the students’ union nightclub are based at Lansdowne. In particular, Bournemouth is known for its strength in media practice and houses the National Centre for Computer Animation.
