Bournemouth University
7.6 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 8 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"It's on the coast, except the uni itself is about a 40 minute walk from the beach and town centre. Halls are located closer to the town on the Landsdowne campus with a bus service to the main Talbot campus. Most non-first years live in residential areas within walking distance of the main campus."
