Accomodation (BAE Systems preston sites)

Can anyone help with finding accomodation for a degree apprenticeship at BAE Systems samlesbury? What's the best town to live in/recommend accomodation/ areas to avoid. Viewed student properties in preston city centre and they weren't the best. Any help would be much appreciated!

Try looking for apartments in blackburn. IF you have a car then its only a 10 minute commute time


I wouldn’t even recommend Blackburn, personally the rent here is so high for an average apartment you looking at 1.2k a month including bills. My advice will be look how many times you have to be in the office, try to commute back and forth from work as I’m starting a grad programs in south Wales and will be going from Blackburn and commuting. Rent near Preston will probs be higher also, look at place like Accrington

Hi, I'm a current degree apprentice based near Preston. DO NOT go for student accommodation, you will be ripped off and feel like you live in a jail cell. Best option is to look for shared housing, or if you can afford it rent a place out yourself. Look on SpareRoom, Rightmove etc. PM if you need any other help.
