First of all I want to compliment you on your choice of studying at the University of Central Lancashire. The university and city of Preston offers everything you could wish for during your student years, and I’m sure you’ll feel right at home when you arrive here. — Especially if your find the right place to stay.
So, what do you have to be aware off when searching for student accommodation in Preston?
I suggest that you start by finding out exactly how much you want to spend on your accommodation. Anyone who have studied at the university, myself included, will tell you that it very easily gets a lot more expensive than you think. Your tuition might be pretty straight forward, but your rent will in 99% of the cases be packed with hidden costs and extra bills. On top of your rent comes electricity bills, heating recalculations, water, internet connection, a TV license, and of course insurance.
And on top of that you can add the “outskirts tax” meaning that the price of public transport will make seemingly cheap flats outside the city centre cost you more than more luxurious options walking distance from campus. And that’s why I would always recommend you to find student accommodation close to UCLAN.
A great place to look for student apartments in Preston is Warehouse Apartments and Canterbury Hall. Both of these complexes offer very affordable student accommodation and great central location. You’ll find Warehouse Apartments on Victoria Street right next to UCLAN, and Canterbury Hall on Brookfield Street right in-between campus and the beautiful Moor Park.
What is so great about these two addresses for student lets in Preston is that they offer all utilities, plus high speed internet connection, TV License and content insurance included in the rent. By having all your accommodation expenses united in one monthly bill, makes it transparent and easy to budget. You are significantly less likely to go over budget, when you know exactly how much your expenses will be throughout the semester.
And in addition, you will have a professional team of property managers negotiate all the monthly bills on behalf of you and close to 500 over tenants, ensuring you one of the best prices you re going to get on your UCLan student accommodation.
