Lancaster is a diverse and bustling city, with several amazing locations that you could call home during your time at university. Deciding where this should be is the difficult part. Here at Student Housing Lancaster, we are dedicated to providing a selection of amazing properties throughout Lancaster, offering you all that you may need to have a fun and successful time at university.

So, what are the best places to live around Lancaster as a student?

Prospect Street 

Prospect Street is a location that benefits from an award-winning chippy, local Londis, Chinese and various other takeaways along the same street. It is a hub of student activity and a great place to live as it is extremely close to bus routes – allowing you to catch the 2, 2A or 3 with ease. It is also conveniently five minutes away from the centre of town, so you don’t have far to carry your shopping.

For the nature lovers, this road is also a convenient ten-minute walk away from Williamson’s Park, a striking walking area with the Ashton Memorial and woodlands to explore. A perfect spot for clearing your mind from studying or even taking the studying outdoors with you!

This is the perfect location for a University of Cumbria student, as it is only a stone’s throw away from campus!

George Street

If you are searching for a more city centre location, then George Street is as close to the centre you can get without setting up shop. This road is the home of many restaurants from around the world, including a wine bar, Chinese restaurant, tapas bar, and much more! For those that enjoy being a minute away from the High Street, this is the perfect accommodation!

Of course, this central location means that you are never far from a bus stop and can make a trip to various locations as a result. Morecambe, the Lake District, and Preston are just a few of the locations you can explore with this city centre base! It also gives you peace of mind. After all, you never have to worry about being late to your lectures again.

Lune Street

For those that want to venture slightly more out of the way there is always the option of venturing to the other side of the River Lune. There are many amazing student houses to be found, just a quick trip across the Millennium Bridge. The aptly named Lune Street is in a quiet area, as it faces a school, which means that you can escape the bustle of the city whenever you go home.

It has a perfect view of Lancaster Castle and a stretch of the river. The two things that gave Lancaster its name – the ‘lan’ referring to the River Lune and the latter part of the name came from the Old English word ‘cæster’ for the fort that today stands as Lancaster Castle. So, if you are a lover of history and want to see these things daily then book today!

Though it may seem further away, this location is actually only a five-minute walk from the bus station to access the Lancaster University Campus and so you will still arrive everywhere on time. It is also only a quick twenty-minute walk away from the University of Cumbria’s campus. Free on-street parking is also available for those with a car.
