Choosing your Preston Campus accommodation
Welcome to Preston
The place we’re proud to call our home.
A vibrant, bustling and multicultural city in the heart of the North West, home to a thriving community of thousands of students, making it the perfect place to live, work and play.
Here you get to enjoy the best of both worlds – a buzzing student city right on your doorstep, together with beautiful green spaces to relax and unwind in. It’s small enough to get around on foot and to get to know. But it has a big personality and its own unique character. Whatever you’re looking for in a student city, you’ll find it in Preston.
