  • Taking the bus- you might not need to take the bus much in Preston, as the university campus is close to the city centre, and here at Let Pads, so are all our properties. But taking the bus can help you get to know areas that are further away, and this can be very helpful if your course involves work placements in industry. Why not take the 89 bus and check out Preston Marina?
