Student cost guide for Preston 2024/25

Picture your second and third years at Preston University. You’ve conquered freshman dorms, made incredible friends, and now crave an upgrade. Metro Student Accommodation steps in, offering budget-friendly digs with private ensuites, modern amenities, and a prime location close to campus and the city centre. Buckle up for a deep dive into costs, features, and perks that’ll elevate your student experience without maxing out your bank account.

Rent: Affordable Choices, Stylish Spaces

Forget cramped halls and shared bathrooms. Metro’s cost per student room per week starts at just £103, all bills included. That’s your own haven with a comfy bed, en-suite shower and study space, all for less than the price of a fancy coffee a day. Studio flats also have their own kitchenette.

Craving more room? Our largest apartment provides king-sized luxury for one or two, featuring a spacious lounge, a fully equipped kitchen/diner, and a separate bedroom area – all yours for £209 per week with bills covered.

All-Inclusive Comfort: No Hidden Fees, Just Peace of Mind

Forget bill stress! Metro rents are fully inclusive, meaning gas, electricity, water, security, cleaning of common areas, laundry, high-speed Wi-Fi, and other amenities are all part of the package. No surprise hikes, no hidden fees, just transparent pricing that lets you budget with confidence. 

Imagine ditching the bill juggling and focusing on what truly matters: aceing exams, conquering presentations, and perfecting your karaoke skills.

Prime Location: Steps from Campus, Close to the City

Say goodbye to long commutes! Our Jazz Bar and Guild Tavern buildings are strategically located a stone’s throw from UCLan and the vibrant city centre. Ditch the bus pass and embrace the walk-around life. 

Need to venture further? Preston boasts reliable and affordable public transport, and the train station connects you to the wider world. Plus, with our free Wi-Fi, you can ditch the pricey mobile data and still navigate like a pro.

Entertainment on a Budget: From Student Nights to Hidden Gems

Preston rocks a vibrant nightlife scene, and you don’t need a trust fund to join the party. Student nights and campus bars are your budget-friendly allies, while free activities like exploring the city’s historical gems abound. 

We recommend UCLan’s £51 per month entertainment budget, but let’s be real: a night out doesn’t have to empty your wallet. Be smart, choose your spots wisely, and you can still have a blast without breaking the bank.

Fueling Your Brainpower: Food & Study Essentials

Eating well fuels your academic pursuits, and with £50-£60 per week, you can become a kitchen master in your own space. Learn some basic culinary skills, hit the budget-friendly supermarkets, and say goodbye to instant noodles (unless you truly love them, no judgment). And hey, free campus events often come with tasty snacks, so keep your eyes peeled!

Textbooks & Tech: Tools for Success Without Breaking the Bank

Textbooks, pens, and the occasional caffeine boost – studying requires some investment. Budget £40-£50 per month for these essentials; remember, the library is your friend. Borrow, buy used, and share with classmates to keep the costs down.

Free Laundry FTW: Spin Away Without the Hassle

No more hunting for tokens or hauling dirty laundry across town. At Metro, laundry is on the house! Just toss your clothes in, hit the “start” button, and boom, clean clothes without the cost or hassle. Spend that extra time conquering your to-do list or mastering the art of Netflix binge-watching.

Skip the Gym Membership: Get Fit for Free

Forget paying extra for gym memberships! As a UCLAN student, you have free access to the Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre and Sports Arena. Get your sweat on, pump some iron, and leave the gym fees to someone else.

The Preston Advantage: Affordable Living, High-Quality Experience

Preston is a student’s paradise for affordability. Compared to other UK cities, it’s like finding a golden coin on the pavement. Metro Student Accommodation takes it even further, giving you high-quality living, private ensuite rooms, comfort, and security, all without breaking the bank. But it’s not just about saving money – Metro is about elevating your student experience.

Feeling academic pressure? Your private study spaces offer a quiet and focused environment to crack open those textbooks and ace that next exam.
