    Gym-wise: I'm not sure if MSc students get full use of the UCLan gym (I would assume so), however, I personally found it packed at most times of the day and mostly with people lounging against equipment and taking selfies. Don't get me wrong, there's some great equipment and it's not bad for classes and being used for being free.*
    I joined Pure Gym as it was close to campus, relatively cheap but gave you everything you'd want and it's 24/7. Have a look about and choose what's best for you. Public transport is great so it's not too bad for links to and from gyms further a field.

    Accommodation: Try looking at private landlords - places like The Warehouse Apartment's (I stayed there in my 2nd and 3rd year). The perks of halls, all bills included, convenient and close to uni, however, you can mention you're an MSc student and they can organise that you're not be allocated with 1st years/ freshers. There's plenty of options, again, research and find what's more convenient for you.

    Good luck!
