UCLan is located in Preston, in the North West of England. Preston is the ideal student city. Although compact in size, it’s absolutely buzzing with activity. Our campus is situated right in the heart of it. Home to a thriving community of 30,000 students, the city centre is packed with an array of lively entertainment, shopping, bars and restaurants. It also enjoys an enviable reputation as being one of the most affordable student cities in the UK and also one of the safest.
Preston is one of the most networked cities in the country, and the railway station is just a 10-minute walk away from the campus. It is three hours from London by rail, one hour from Manchester International Airport, 20 minutes from the coast and one hour from the beautiful scenery of the Lake District.
Over the next couple of years we’re transforming our Preston Campus through our ambitious £200m Masterplan project, which will ensure you’ll enjoy a first-class teaching and learning experience during your time here. Our recent investments in bright, modern teaching rooms and social spaces are happening alongside the creation of a brand new Engineering Innovation Centre and the launch of a new £60m Student Centre and University Square.
We pride ourselves in having a healthy campus so the majority of our students are eligible for free sports membership, worth over £200 a year. Explore our fantastic facilities at both Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre and UCLan Sports Arena, where you’re sure to find something to keep both your body and mind healthy.
At UCLan you’ll benefit from work-related internships, award-winning volunteering schemes, international travel bursaries, dedicated career development advice and a wide range of degree programmes designed to enhance your career prospects.
Our student support is second to none and includes a student information centre, the 'i', to help with areas such as careers, counselling, financial and academic advice.
