Finding the most comfortable place to live during your study time can make a great difference for your studies. And not just academically, living close to fellow students can greatly improve your social life during your time at UCLan. It is commonly known among students that making friends and generally socializing with like-minded study mates gives extra energy for achieving good results when the exams come along. Especially international students benefit from living in studios close to UCLan. Here they have easy access to the thriving student community surrounding campus, which help combat the feeling of loneliness that can follow being long away from home.
So that brings the question; where the best studios close to UCLan are?
And specifically where to find the optimal UCLan international student accommodation. The first thing to do before searching for a place to stay, is determine your budget and priorities when it comes to your accommodation. Is it important for you to be around other students? Do you need to have your own kitchen and bathroom? Or would you prefer to share it with a flatmate or two to save money on rent? Regardless of your personal preferences, you probably want the most comfort for your money, and to live as close to campus as possible.
Two student developments that offers both are Canterbury Hall and Warehouse Apartments. Placed less than half a mile from the UCLan main campus, it will be super easy to get to class and back home by foot, so you don’t need to pay for public transport. With room for 234 students, Warehouse Apartments makes up one the most thriving communities for UCLan overseas student accommodation. Canterbury Hall is a close second, offering accommodation for 191 students. But Canterbury Hall offers other luxuries for their tenants, such as extra spacious 21-34 m2 apartments and studios, a beautiful roof-top garden, and on-site gym and cinema free to use for all residents.
The unique thing about these two UCLan student accommodation options are their All-Inclusive rental contracts. When you rent a studio in Canterbury Hall or Warehouse Apartments, you get all utility bills, high-speed WiFi, basic content insurance, and TV (including 40” flatscreen) included in the price. All apartments offer private en-suite bathroom, fully equipped kitchen (private or shared with your flatmates), plenty of study and storage space, so they are ready to move in to. And they are of course fully furnished with a comfortable spacious bed, study desk, wardrobe, and so on, so students don’t have to move any furniture of their own.
So where is the best place to live close to UCLAN? It still depends on your preferences. But because of their innovative new approach to providing student accommodation, Canterbury Hall and Warehouse Apartments can negotiate great prices on utilities, insurance, etc., on behalf of their tenants and thereby offer a lot more comfort and luxury than other student accommodation providers. So when tenants count all their monthly living costs and expenses they pay less or same as their fellow students who live further away from campus in smaller rooms or studios, spend more time and money on public transport, and don’t have access to luxuries like on-site gym, roof-top garden, or cinema.
