Residences Team

Moving out to live away from home can sometimes mean you face a variety of fresh experiences and new challenges. At UCLan our Residences Team are here to provide you with the assistance and support to make your time with us an enjoyable one.

We guarantee a room in halls, on campus, for every new full-time student on our Preston Campus

Every hall has a Residences Officer and an Assistant Residences Officer to ensure you have the best possible experience from your time living with us. The team provide a range of services including information about events and social activities, dispute resolution, facilities management queries as well as offering support for any other issues you may have.

Choose from our list of Accommodation from the menu on the right and discover the Halls of Residence that is right for you.

Our mission is to create a vibrant, engaging, inclusive community within our Halls of Residence. We want all residents to have a place they belong to the moment they step onto campus and our Hall community is one way you can make that happen.

We work hard to create a safe, comfortable environment that both challenges and supports the social and academic development of our residents. Please get involved throughout the year in our events and activities. If you want more information, please contact your Residences Officer.

Some examples of just a few of the events we have done over the years:

  • Welcome Event- Getting to know your neighbours, block pictures, and free pizza!
  • Halloween Pumpkin Carving Competitions and best costume
