As the most recent place in the UK to be awarded city status, Preston is a compact city with a tremendous character and a thriving student scene. The University of Central Lancashire (or UCLAN) is based just outside the city centre, with a wealth of bars, clubs, shops and restaurants on its doorstep. For such a small city, Preston has a huge personality, with an impressive nightlife. So to help you settle into your new city and get the most out of the next, exciting three years, here's our guide to student life in Preston.
