Corfe House location isn't the best but I found you bond with the people in your halls a lot more as its small and you're in the only halls in poole. The double beds are amazing!! The night life/partying is just as good. You just need to fork out a bit for taxi's to get home which is roughly £5 each. There's a shopping centre right next to the halls and the bus service is really good. There's an aldi next door to the halls which is very cheap. Sandbanks and the local park with a lake in poole are also gorgeous in summer as well as bournemouth beach. I've had an over all good experience living in corfe.. It's just a little far but everything you need is within close proximity apart from the nightlife which there are frequent buses to anyway.

as a student nurse this accommodation is ideal, it's in a beautiful location and close to placements. However if you're studying a university based course you may feel like your out of way a bit, and it does make nights out more difficult. For me, I have no regrets about choose these halls, but can see why others might.

Corfe House is situated in Poole which is a 20-30 minute bus ride to uni and a 25-40 bus ride into bournemouth town. This is the only downside as its away from everything however being in Poole it still has everything you need including a shopping centre, leisure centre and a beautiful harbour. The vibe in Corfe is amazing, it's like a community as we are the only student halls in Poole meaning everyone kind of knows everyone. Reception is so reliable, they are there to help 24/7

It's been a good experience in these halls the convenience of having aldi, sainsburys and asda in walking distance plus a town centre is great. Getting to uni isn't bad at all. Only thing is you're a bit isolated from the other halls and taxis back from nights out are expensive.

My experience with Corfe House has been awful. Traffic can get really bad especially if it's raining so there is a chance you'll be late for some morning classes. The halls and rooms have not been recently painted and they don't overall feel very clean. Every furniture and appliance is of regular to bad quality (shower, bed, oven, toilet etc...). The staff has been disrespectful to me on several occasions. The flats and surrounding area (bus and train station) can get really noisy. The rent for the kind of accommodation provided is ridiculous, much better and cheaper options can be found near the campus. I do not recommend this to any person with good standards.

Corfe House is too far to enjoy a closeby nightlife apart from a few pubs. Common room looks bigger on the website pictures than it is in real life, and subsequently lacks to accomodate large gatherings of over 20.

Pretty good facilities, close to Poole town centre but not good for nights out in Bournemouth. Don't have a cleaner. Good for meeting new people

A very close community however the location is a bit of a problem. It is in Poole and requires a 20 minuet bus to get to the Uni but the area is amazing.

Terrible location! No where near the university it takes 30 mins on the bus at least to get there. It's over an hour away from the other halls so you can't socialise and if you want to go out clubbing it's so far that it costs £25 in taxi fares one way. It is close to the poole town centre but that is rubbish compared to Bournemouth. DO NOT GO HERE.
