Beautiful Bournemouth Beach has been named “The Best Beach in the UK” for 2019 by the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards. Here you can spend the day enjoying the fine golden sand and welcoming waters. Take it easy with a spot of sunbathing, or get adventurous with a water sport like jet-skiing or paddle-boarding.

The Old Fire Station is Bournemouth University’s official student union venue. Head down to this popular local club to experience the town’s longest-running student night every Friday, and unwind after a long week of lectures. This is a great spot to mingle and enjoy some energetic DJ sets – an iconic part of the Bournemouth University nightlife.

Bournemouth 7s is the biggest sport and music festival in the world, held in Bournemouth every May.

This is one serious party that every Bournemouth student should experience at least once!
