You won’t regret coming to study in Preston as a foreign or exchange student! The city is located in the beautiful Lancashire countryside; a place steeped in history and surrounded by amazing green areas for you to enjoy when needing a well deserved break from the books.
Preston is a historical city that grew from a small town to an important industrial centre thanks to the booming cotton production during the industrial revolution. Today, Preston is a modern university city offering a great study environment for both local British and international university students.
What makes Preston special for students, is that the city is large enough to offer everything a student could want — from sport, exercise and fitness activities to restaurants, cafés, pubs and outdoor places perfect for social activities. But at the same time it is of a manageable size that isn’t too hard to find your way around. It is easy to get to meet and become part of the local youth culture that already has an international profile thanks to the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).
Finding the cheapest student accommodation in Preston
To be sure that you get the best deal on your Preston student home, you need to be aware of a few principles about the UK living and housing costs. First of all, the UK is not the cheapest country to live — but if you are a little smart about how you plan your expenses it DOES NOT have to be expensive at all. For example will the price of bus tickets add up over the cause of a semester and that is an expense you will have to budget for if living in a place where you have to rely on the bus for your daily commute to class.
In Preston however, you should not need to rely on the bus too much, as it is possible to find great student accommodation very close to UCLan main campus. If you, e.g., rent one of the 234 student ensuites or studios offered by the brand new student complex on Victoria Street, Warehouse Apartments, you will live just a stones throw from UCLan. Or if you are looking for an even more spacious studio, you could rent one in Canterbury Wall — just 0.5 miles walk from UCLan.
Both of these options are great options for cheap accommodation for foreign students in Preston. They offer what is probably the simplest and most transparent rental contracts for students in the UK. What sets Canterbury Hall and Warehouse Apartments apart from other student rentals is that they offer all your living costs included in the rent at the best possible price. Where you otherwise have to negotiate your utility contracts, insurance, internet subscription, etc., and pay expensive installation and activation fees, you will now get all of this included in the rent you pay once a month.
