If you have older siblings, cousins, or other family members who have or are currently enrolled in university, you will probably have heard that most students prefer to live close to campus. — But that is simply because they are lazy and do not want to get up early to get to class right?
Well, granted — who really want to get up earlier than you have to in the morning to get to class? But that is not the main reason students avoid rental apartments outside the city centre or far from campus.
The real reason is; living too far from campus is expensive.
The price of public transport in the UK is relatively high, so over the course of a semester those daily bus tickets will add up, eating a substantial part of a tight student budget. So if you compare what you save on rent living far from everything, it won’t make up for the cost of your daily commute.
Another reason why students prefer Studios close to UCLan is that it can be hard to rely on public transport in the evening and on the weekends. Having to catch the last bus home in the middle of all the fun is a drag that most students wants to be without.
Generally, having your fellow students and classmates close by will make it much easier to attend social activities. Not having to plan a trip and count costs every time you are invited to a friends place or an extra curricular event on campus will mean you get to go a lot more often and with less worries. Warehouse apartments is located right next to UCLan’s main campus and Canterbury Hall offers its own on-site gym, cinema and roof-top garden when students don’t want to walk the 0.5 miles to campus.
