A CAMPUS LIKE NO OTHER
AUB’s stunning state-of-the-art campus is a creative hub designed for specialists. With a backdrop of head-turning architecture, you’ll be in a community of like-minded makers and thinkers. Our campus is a catalyst to shape and build your work; to experiment, innovate, be curious and push boundaries. It’s where you will make amazing things happen.
Our spaces are divided into villages, boulevards, green space and infrastructure. Our campus also has a real buzz about it. On route to the café you might pass a film crew, a woman in Elizabethan dress and a DJ. It’s a microcosm of the creative industries. AUB was voted the highest-ranked modern university in the South West by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018.
We invest heavily in industry-standard technology and spaces that equip you for life in the creative industries. We want you to get used to the equipment and facilities you’ll find in the real world.
Plus, you’re also surrounded by the New Forest, great beaches, and World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Bournemouth boasts great nightlife and culture too and London is just two hours away.
