Welcome to the Bournemouth University Accommodation Portal

This is the main accommodation portal for accommodation registration, Room Bookings, E-Inductions, Unilet Maintenance and Rent payments. (Rent only for Unilet, Dorchester House, Home Park and the Student Village).

If you are a student starting this September 2018 the emails inviting you to begin the accommodation process will start going out from the week beginning 9th April 2018 for those students that have chosen us as their first choice. Eligible applicants will be contacted with further details on how to register their interest in accommodation by completing Stage 1 on the accommodation portal.

Stage 1 emails will be sent out in batches, as there is no disadvantage to having the email later in the week please do not get concerned if you do not hear anything immediately.

The first release of Stage 2, where you will book your accommodation, will open on 12 June. An email will be sent before that date to those students who are Unconditional Firm (UF) and have completed Stage 1. Those who become UF later will go into a release in July or August and you will have an equal chance of booking accommodation whichever release you are given.

Please make sure the e-mail address on your UCAS Track account is up-to-date as we will use this email address to contact you about the accommodation booking process. In the meantime start considering our accommodation options and familiarise yourself with the booking process and our FAQs.


If you are a Hotmail or gmail user please add the domain ‘bournemouth.ac.uk’ to your safe senders list to ensure all our emails get through to you.  (Settings options Safe & blocked senders)
