The University of Central Lancashire attracts more than 35,000 students from around the world every year, and it’s clear to see why. With award-winning facilities and a whole host of courses ranging from Accounting and Business through to Sports Journalism, there’s really something for everyone. Once you’ve decided that UCLan is right for you, the next step is to find registered UCLan student accommodation where you can relax and call home for a year or two. Below, we’ve put together some advice on finding the right apartment for your needs.
Student accommodation close to UCLan
If you’re looking for accommodation close to the University of Central Lancashire, we’ve got you covered. Our Warehouse Apartments are a couple of minutes’ walk from the Students Union building, whilst our brand-new Canterbury Hall facility is within a 5-minute walk of the UCLan campus and only a short 10-minute walk to the town centre in the heart of Preston.
The biggest benefits of being close to campus are that you don’t have to worry about finding a bus or train every morning – you can walk comfortably to class and come home for lunch – and you’re at the heart of the action. When you make new friends, you can meet them on campus and get back to your apartment quickly when you’re ready to call it a night. Another benefit is that you’re close to bars, restaurants, and other facilities like supermarkets and convenience stores – everything is at your fingertips. From the delicious House of Gelato to the Moor Park pub right over the road, you’ll be spoiled for choice the second you get there.
UCLan overseas student accommodation
If you’re moving to Preston from another country, it’s natural to feel anxious about finding the right accommodation for your needs. As we’ve just touched upon, being close to the action means that you’re more likely to get involved and make new friends. Another reason why you should consider Student FM is that our five-star all-inclusive accommodation is popular amongst international students, so you’ll likely find others who are in the same boat as you.
You can buddy up, get to know your new town together, and become lifelong friends. And as our accommodation includes your household bills – everything from gas and electricity to broadband and contents insurance – you don’t have to break the bank to study in Preston!
Where is the best place to live close to UCLAN?
With so much choice when studying in a town such as Preston, it can be tough to know where the best place is for student accommodation. At Student FM, we think we offer two first-class options for students of all backgrounds in our Warehouse Apartments and at Canterbury Hall. Both are fully equipped with the facilities you’ll need, like a bed, large TV, storage, WiFi, bills and insurance. Our Warehouse Apartments featured shared lounges and kitchens – ideal for making new friends – whereas our Canterbury Hall apartments are fully self-contained and come with their own kitchens, which you’ll prefer if you like your privacy.
