Each flat has a communal kitchen, which is well-equipped with a dining table and chairs, cooker, fridges, freezers, microwave, kettle, toaster and plenty of cupboard space. 

There is a student hub social area, which features flexible working space and comfortable seating and a flat screen TV.

All bedrooms are modern and of a good size, featuring a small double bed, notice boards, study desk and chair, chest of drawers, wardrobe, waste bin. Each en-suite has a personal shower, wash basin and toilet.

University Registered Private Accommodation

If you would prefer to live in a shared house or an apartment, the University manages a registration scheme for private landlords in Burnley. Accommodation staff have inspected these properties and the landlords must abide by the requirements of our scheme. Therefore, we recommend that you look for off campus accommodation that is registered with UCLan.
