The Talbot Campus is situated at Fern Barrow on the Poole side of the boundary with Bournemouth. It is where the main University buildings are located, including the students' union and the main library. The campus also contains cafes and refectories, Dylan's and The Loft bars, a doctors' surgery, shop and a branch of Santander.
The Landsdowne Campus is just outside Bournemouth's town centre, housing six teaching and administrative buildings, the students' union nightclub and various halls of residence located around Christchurch Road, Oxford Road and Holdenhurst Road. Unlike Talbot, Lansdowne is not a self-contained campus.
