We work closely with the University of Central Lancashire to endeavour that the students staying with us get maximum use of their space, from sociable surroundings to private rooms with great work spaces.

Room to Relax

Each room features a single bed with plenty of storage underneath, a large wardrobe and drawer, bedside table, desk cabinet and ample shelving. All bedrooms enjoy en-suite facilities with a basin, power shower and WC. Each flat has a communal kitchen/lounge area with comfortable seating for all and the usual appliances. We even provide a full TV licence for the communal area.

Comfort & Convenience

Recently built to the latest standards of insulation and double glazing, together with fully controllable electric heating, Bowran House provides a warm and comfortable environment. Safety features include a fire alarm system and automated lighting in the communal hallways. Mail is sorted into individual boxes on the ground floor so you can easily pick up your flat's post. Our intercom system makes it easy to let visitors in, without having to leave the flat.

Security & Technology

In addition to the appliances you'd expect to find in a kitchen, we also provide a free washer/dryer, so you don't have to use an expensive, shared laundrette as in many other student premises. A CCTV system is installed in the building, and the intercom in each flat allows identification of visitors, without opening the front door - creating a secure & safe environment for our residents.


Discover the historic city of Preston and the beautiful untouched countryside that surrounds it.
Whether it's the nightlife you're after or a city to emerse yourself with culture, Preston offers it all.
