Halls of Residence - at a glance

There are around 2200 accommodation places in University owned and leased halls of residence.
Code of Practice - our Halls are regulated by independent bodies, details of which can be found on the individual Halls pages.

Each hall is self-catering and prices include all fuel and water bills.

On your application form, you will state whether you would like en-suite or or non en-suite accommodation. Accommodation is allocated by Accommodation Services on a first come, first served basis. This chart is to give you a brief overview of the accommodation we provide. As an alternative to University accommodation, it is possible for new students to live in privately registered halls or houses.


There is free internet access in all University owned and leased accommodation. In all of our non ensuite halls and in Roeburn Hall and also IQ Preston you can link to the internet via the UCLan network lite scheme. UCLan-Wireless is also available in the following UCLan owned and leased halls of residence: Derwent, Douglas, Eden, IQ Preston, Boatman's Court, Bowran House, Pendle, Ribble, Roeburn and Whitendale.


In line with the UK Digital switchover, rooms in UCLan halls of residence television aerial points are not supported for television services. Therefore, televisions and set-top boxes are unlikely to work in Halls of Residence rooms. To connect to television channels on your laptop or pc in in the halls of residence you can use services such as iPlayer and TVCatchup or alternatively there is downloadable software. You may still need a TV licence.
