About University of Central Lancashire

Founded in 1828 as the Institution for the Diffusion of Knowledge, the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has been committed to educating people from all walks of life since its foundation. With 400 undergraduate and over 200 postgraduate courses, the University has something to offer students of any level.

Campus

UCLan’s main campus is located in Preston, Lancashire. The university has recently launched a £200 million campaign to modernise the campus and integrate it with the city around it. This initiative will add an Engineering Innovation Centre, a Student Support Centre and new landscape developments.

Student Life

1 in 5 people in Preston are students so it’s no surprise that the city enjoys a lively and like-minded community for undergraduates and postgraduates alike. With numerous historic buildings, parks, cafes and clubs, there’s no shortage of things to see and do. The Student’s Union has an event and live music venue with a capacity of up to 1,750 people.
