Lulworth Summer Residence

Lulworth residence offers single en suite rooms arranged into cluster flats. Each flat can accommodate 6 – 8 students, who share a kitchen/lounge area. There is also a communal restaurant and study area on site where students can dine and socialise. 24/7 security was a key factor in the building of this residence.

Just a 10-minute walk from the town centre in a safe environment with access to local transport, shops and restaurants, this is an ideal location for Kings students.

All flats and rooms have their own lock. Students will be provided with a key/ fob. Please note, lost room keys can be charged.

There are also staff accommodated in the residence.

Kings Charminster is situated just 5 minutes’ walk from Charminster (the vibrant and trendy heart of student life in Bournemouth), just a 20-minute walk from Kings and a 30-minute walk to the town centre. A range of amenities and healthcare facilities are close by. 

The residence is a modern purpose-built premium student residence offering 41 single and twin bedrooms, all with en suite shower rooms and furnished to a high standard. The residence is half-board with breakfast and dinner freshly prepared by our chefs. Students are supervised by the full time residence warden.
