Preston is the ideal place for students looking to enjoy themselves after a hard day’s studying at university. With a small but very lively and much loved nightlife the city has a wide range of bars, night clubs and restaurants to suit all tastes! Well known for its café culture, Preston boasts numerous modern coffee shops and vintage teashops. When you stay in one of our student properties, you’ll be sure to find a spot that you love, where you can sit with your laptop or catch up with friends.
If culture is your thing then Preston is the right place for you! You can take in the Harris Museum and Art Gallery, which is just 10 minutes from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan). If you are into live music, Preston Guild Hall hosts fantastic events throughout the year and it’s only a short walk away from the university.
Preston is centrally located in the middle of Lancashire and if you love the great outdoors then you can enjoy the beautiful Riverside and Moor parks or you can take a short car bus journey to Preston's nearby Moors, and forests, such as the stunning Beacon Fell Country Park inside the beautiful forest of Bowland.
Preston is surrounded by outdoor adventure centres too so if you're keen on paintballing, gokarting or quadbiking then you won't have to travel far. But don't worry if you're more of a city person Preston also has some of the UK’s biggest cities just a short train ride away, making weekends away easy!
The city's high street is packed with big shops and unique boutiques. Fishergate and Friargate shopping malls offer a wide variety of shops so you can find everything you need for university life and much more!
Both properties in our Preston student accommodation portfolio fuse comfort and convenience, as they are just a short stroll away from the universities and city centre. You will also benefit from the handy local transport links, including Preston Railway Station, enabling you to travel around the area with ease and enjoy the amenities.
Avenham and Miller Parks, the proud owners of a Green Flag Award, are adjourning green spaces and within walking distance of our properties, while two shopping malls – St George’s and Fishergate – are only 10 minutes away on foot. Vue and Odeon cinemas keep the film buffs happy, and the nightlife consists of an impressively-diverse offering.
Roper Hall is one of the most popular nightclubs in the area. Trendy bars 1842 and Baluga are often buzzing of a night, and Glovers is great for a cocktail if you’re in the mood for one more drink before you return to your student accommodation!
