Student Accommodation in Preston

Brunel Court provides contemporary student accommodation in Preston city centre for 400 students.

Between the larger than average rooms and fantastic location between the city Centre and university makes Brunel Court a popular choice for student accommodation in Preston.
Facilities onsite include complimentary hardwired 20MB internet plus WIFI, common lounge, laundry and private gym, and for your safety we maintain 24/7 presence on site, backed up with extensive CCTV.
At Brunel we try and fuse the best bits of living at university halls with living in private, happy accommodation whilst developing a range of social activities for our tenants.
With all bills being included, you know where you are financially on day one.


Well appointed rooms and great facilities, with everything you need right on your doorstep.



At Brunel Court we are fortunate to have extensive facilities to enhance your experience whilst staying with us.
The onsite team are continuing to develop group functions and events to encourage community spirit with the halls.

Common Room

A large common room/games room is provided to the ground floor adjacent to the reception. This includes pool table and table football and provides a focal point for occupants of Brunel Court to meet and socialise.

Car Parking

A substantial amount of car parking is available on site, in the secure compound. These spaces are optionally available for a small charge. For security purposes this car park access is electronically controlled.

Cycle Racks

A number of cycle racks and shelters are provided to enable safe and secure housing for cycles.

Vending Machines

Vending machines dispensing snacks and drinks are available in the reception area for all tenants.


A modern laundrette is provided on site with coin operated washing machines and driers.


A well equipped gymnasium is available for sole use of residents at no extra charge.


We realise that the security of all residents is of tremendous importance. We have therefore designed the building with this in mind and have a very secure compound, controlled by electronic card swipes.
CCTV is provided and a 24 hour presence is maintained on site.

Landscaped Gardens

At Brunel Court we are fortunate to have a large garden area with grassed areas. Having such an area to relax in on warm days is most unusual for city centre developments and remains one of our most popular features.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Book?

Make contact with us, either by phone, email or call in to see us. We will take the necessary details and prepare contracts for you to sign.

Do I Need A Guarantor?

A UK based guarantor is required for tenancies. This is usually a parent or guardian. Overseas students who cannot provide a UK based guarantor are unable to pay the rent in instalments.

How long is the tenancy for?

At Brunel Court, our tenancies run for 42 weeks. Should you wish to extend your stay, this is possible and contact with management should be made as early as you know your need to stay on.

How do I pay my rent?

We usually request post dated cheques, which we will hold on your behalf until the due date. Alternatively a direct debit may be arranged or a credit card payment can be made.

Can I live with my friends?

Provided you advise us at the time of booking and we have availability, we will always try and accommodate such request.

Do I need to pay a deposit?

No, we don't require a deposit, but any damages found at the end of the tenancy would be invoiced to you/your guarantor.

Can I Terminate My Contract After Signing It?

No, the contract is binding, so you must be comfortable with it before you sign it. Notwithstanding this, should you find a suitable successor for your room, we would be happy to assign the contract. We will always help to try to find someone to take over your tenancy in these circumstances.

Are There Any Other Bills?

No, your rent covers all power, heating and water charges.
