On Sunday 11th September, thousands of students arrived at the univeristy (UCLAN) ahead of the start of the new academic year. The new students collected their keys and moved their possessions into various student accommodations.

This is an exciting and a new chapter in many of your lives and we know you can’t wait to start your studies and to make new, lifelong friends.

Professor Graham Baldwin, UCLan Vice-Chancellor, said “Welcoming both our new arrivals and returning students back to our fantastic campuses is always one of the highlights of our year”.

Preston Freshers 2022 will be your official introduction to your University Campus, accommodation and social events. This can seem quite daunting for some, especially if your  moving away from friends and family. Don’t worry we are here to help your university journey and help you settle-in that little bit easier!

When you move in with letpads you will realise it is like a home from home not like stuffy halls with small rooms and security not letting you in with your mates, once you get your own letpads student house in preston its yours to enjoy with your family and friends no asking or sneeking mates in past security or worrying about being too loud to the apartment above, below, to the left or right of you when its student accommodation in preston look no further than letpads.
