Student Review: 3.4 /5
By member968777 On 9th May 22

My room was described as having a sea view, I can just about see the sea between some buildings if I squint my eyes. I’ve also been woken up by construction workers making very loud noises with drills, lifts, hammers etc. every morning since I arrived here in September, excluding weekends. During a flat inspection some peoples personal belongings were searched through whilst they weren’t there. Due to the location of my room in the building, my room was smaller than others that were paying the same price, even the bed was smaller and less floor space was available. Would personally recommend looking for rooms in other student accommodation near by.

Really nice block, and great location. Got charged throughout lockdown even though I was not allowed to enter the building.

Student Review: 3.6 /5
By maeve On 3rd April 20

Despite it being a social and spacious place to live for my first year of university, Oxford Point has let down a lot of students and lost my respect since COVID-19. Although the university campus was closed and we were advised to go home, Oxford Point has demanded the final rent instalment for a term where I will not be at university, and therefore not living in Bournemouth. The final instalment is over £1000, for a room I won’t be using. This is a huge let down.

Student Review: 1.6 /5
By Recremac On 3rd April 20

Do not recommend. Oxford Point Management are acting insensitively to the difficult position students are faced with in light of this global Coronavirus pandemic. Both AUB and BU Campuses are closed, and students are advised by their unis to return home. All AUB halls residents are advised that they WILL NOT BE CHARGED their final rent installment this year, and many privately owned halls have followed suit, with rent reductions. The student maintenance loan that many receive is inadequate to cover the cost of Oxford Point Accommodation. It is insensitive and irresponsible for Oxford Point Management to expect students to pay in full the rent when they have no uni stay for, and have been advised to return. It is further irresponsible to neglect to review their Policies during these unprecedented circumstances. I recommend avoiding Oxford Point.

The staff in these halls are mostly friendly. However, I suffered without heating in my room for a month during winter. To add on so far (3 April 2020) we have had little support with the current pandemic.

Would never stay with Fresh Student Living again. Staying here has made me hate university - signing their tenancy agreement was the biggest mistake I've made. Staff have no understanding of fairness and have made my trust falter dramatically.
