Maps & Directions
The college campuses are located in Bournemouth and Poole
The Lansdowne campus is centrally located on the eastern side of the town centre on the roundabout linking Bath Road, Meyrick Road, Christchurch Road and Holdenhurst Road. The building has a large clocktower facing the roundabout. This location is a few hundred metres from the East Cliff and a short distance to the main travel exchange and Bournemouth station (approx 5 - 10 mins walking distance).
The North Road campus in Poole is located close to Poole Park and the large Civic Centre roundabout (which is a large gyratory system with the municipal offices in the middle). When exiting this roundabout to access The College campus, you will need to take a left hand turn directly after the Sloop public house. You will be on the A35, Commercial Road. If travelling by rail, the North Road campus is equidistant to both Parkstone station and Poole Town station (both approx 10 – 15 mins walking distance).
Car parking is strictly limited on both main campuses. Visitors are advised to telephone in advance to see if parking reservation is possible. There is a pay and display public car park at the Civic Offices in Poole (2 mins walk) from the North Road campus; and at Lansdowne paid parking may be available at the Round House Hotel (directly opposite The College in Meyrick Road).
