Preston Campus

Our Preston Campus is right at the heart of the city, just minutes away from its vibrant shopping centre, attractions and nightlife. It’s home to a thriving international community of over 38,000 students and staff.

Everything you need on campus is within easy reach - from our Library (open 24/7 during term time) to our lecture theatres, cafes and Students’ Union. And all our University accommodation is located within a short walk of the campus - so you’ll never have to worry about being late for lectures.
