University of Central Lancashire


The University of Central Lancashire, also known as UCLan, is based in the city of Preston and gained university status in 1992. Despite its relative youth, it is now one of the top 20 largest universities in the UK, based on student population, with more than 20,000 undergraduates and postgraduate studying there each year.

UCLan has regularly been rated as one of the top 100 universities in the country by publications like The Guardian and The Times, and has also been cited as one of the top 1,000 universities globally by the CWUR.

Its large population has helped to create substantial demand for the best student accommodation Preston property owners have available, including in areas like Ashton-on-Ribble, Ribbleton and Fulwood. To avoid missing out on your preferred choice, it is recommended that you book in advance, and Student Pavilion can help.


Student Pavilion – The New Way to Find UCLan Accommodation is a new and cutting-edge way to explore the various student houses Preston has to offer. Our platform is unique in the UK, providing landlords, letting agents and accommodation operators with a subscription-style service and doing so on a nationwide basis, so that you can explore all local listings.

Regardless of whether you are interested in a self-contained studio, a shared flat, a place in private or university halls, or want to share a whole house, you will find options that suit you. A smart search function also allows you to sort these options based on room style, distance from university, weekly rent costs and much more.

Meanwhile, our service brings the search for student housing into the modern age through the inclusion of virtual reality tours within listings, as standard. This allows you to actually experience what a room looks and feels like, which can be especially beneficial for students who are unable to travel for a physical property viewing.
