Try and get a corner flat on floor 4 and above they are the best kitchens. 6 bedroom flats are definitely worth it more space 2 fridges and 2 sinks trust me you need it!! Get a good mobile plan because WiFi sometimes goes down. Location is amazing!!! Near beach, Asda, bus stop and not far from other accoms. Higer floors (floor 9) have weird bathrooms (no locks and no shower head) I lived on floor 4 and would say it's a pretty safe bet. Block A can't get into block B but there is always someone in the courtyard. Overall great experience living in Purbeck visited other halls and they really don't have the same fun atmosphere as Purbeck. Laundry is very pricey £3 for a basic wash which doesn't include dryer and there isn't many washers either.
I have been living here for 5 months at the moment and i completely love it here, i’m so in love with my room, and have made it completely my own place, there’s so much storage and my kitchen/lounge is such good size too. it’s in such a good area with everything so close by, and the nightlife is nearby and so good, with purbeck being known for pre drinks. highly recommend living here i love it so much and feel so safe and comfortable
A terrible place to live in. Very loud music and very obnoxious people. They won't let you sleep until 4 am, and security does nothing to put an end to this. If you want to party 24/7 and have alcoholic and drug addicts around you, this is your place. If not, avoid this place.
If you are lucky enough to get good housemates, then it's a pretty decent place to stay. It's got easy access to town and across the road from the bus stop to uni. The flats are pretty modern, but the seats in the kitchen /common room area are the most uncomfortable things ever!
Best halls in Bournemouth or closeness to night life and bus routes. But the company behind it, Unite will bleed you dry of any money you have. Be weary when you move in and take photos of everything. But apart from that it will be the best experience of your life!
staff are poor and try every trick in the book to get money off of you, a girl in my flat broke one stool which were very old anyway and on there way out and we got charged £32 for that single stool! Also over Christmas we forgot to take the bins out and got charged £40 for this, although the location is unbelievable being waking distance from all nightclubs, pubs, beaches and so close to other uni halls as well so all of your mates are very close! Socially amazing, but unfortunately I believe you'd get ripped off at the majority of university halls you will move into nowadays
the halls was great fun having everything in walking distance, excellent value for money however it was always quite a mess, but what do you expect for students who are constantly going out? Town and the beach are close and the coop and Asda are a minute walk away, Bournemouth has excellent hall accommodation which are all on the bus routes which makes first year such a doss!
