    Hey!
    I will be studying at UCLAN this year and was just wondering about student halls. Could anyone tell me what you thought of halls in Preston and what ones are good value for money etc.
    This will be the first time I'll be going to halls

    Hiya, I'm studying in Preston at the moment and I'm staying at Liberty Living - Liberty Village.
    It's really really nice here and a lot of students from UCLAN stay here; the facilities are great and well maintained and I swear they have the best showers in the world here.
    At the moment I'm staying in the premium room and its a pretty decent size, but I'm moving room to the one next door which is massive, there are only two of it's size in the entire accommodation block (2.5x my current room, en-suite). It's meant for two people, but it can be booked for one, currently priced at 120/week on a 51 week contract - total 6120/year.
    Unfortunately, I have to move out because I have my next placement in Manchester and I'll be moving there.
    I'm looking for someone (or two people) to be willing to take over my contract, and as such, I'm offering to pay up 500 of the yearly fee (5620/year or 110/week for 51 weeks). I'm only willing to pay in cash, in person during the switch over of the contract or directly after.
    If you're interested then you have to contact me first, because I will then be able to tell the reception that you want to take over my booking specifically and not just book any other room.
    Message me: 07583049470
    Thanks!

    Thanks! The halls look great! How soon do you need to know though? The problem is I have to get SAAS to find out how much I could afford and they have been down for maintenance

    I looked at Warehouse apartments and thought they looked fantastic Not only that but it is close to my Uni building! When would you need to know by? Like I said in my other post I'm applying for SAAS now so until I knew I could get it and afford it I have to wait.

    yeah i can get you some pictures they do have a website with pictures on too on there it says the rooms are from £97 a week but they have changed the price because you no longer have to pay a deposit, instead they put the weekly amount up, when i booked mine i payed the £200 deposit so its only £92 a week, i payed the same amount a week in roeburn and the rooms were tiny, the bathroom was horrible and there was only a single bed...for the same price as that its absolutely amazing, i'll add you now
