Foundry Court is a really great place to live if you’re going to attend UCLAN. It’s close to the university and the accommodation itself is really great. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful and the rooms are a really great size with en-suites. Highly recommend.

Q&A


Q
Hi, I came for a room viewing and completely forgot to look. Does the desk have little holes where wires can be passed through so there will be less clutter on the desk area ?

Hi!  

Thanks for the question, yes the desk does have wire holes for you to feed the cables through.  if you have anu more questions please do not hesitate to contact me :) 

Q
Is the locks on the rooms to lock your room when going out?

Hello,

Thank you for your question.  Your Flat door and your bedroom door are both fitted with locks, the front door should be kept locked at all times like you would do at home and yes when you leave your bedroom its best practice to lock your door.

If you have any further questions regarding this please feel free to email us at foundrycourt@wearehomesforstudents.com or phone 01772 251393 and a member of the team will assist you.

Kind Regards

Jennifer Walls

Q
Does any of the bedrooms have drawers to put all your clothes or is it just a wardrobe that they have
By member949414 On 18th June 20

Unfortunately we are single occupancy only and you have to be a student to live here.
Q
In the room bed is just a single bed or double bed. Asking as I just want to compare with Boatsman and Tremshed . Also please inform about laundry facility
By member1146394 On 4th March 20

I lived in Foundry Court for my final two years and I wished I found it sooner. You won’t find a more dedicated and caring team of staff who want you to get the best possible experience in student accommodation. The on-site team are always friendly, welcoming and willing to assist you in any way. The common room is a place where you can relax, play games, watch tv and also where social events are held, as well as this the daily freebies as you pass through reception are also an added bonus. The rooms are spacious, well heated and the beds are comfortable and easily fit two people. The en-suite bathrooms are also very good, the showers are powerful! If you’re looking for a student accommodation that cares about you and your time at university, look no further than Foundry Court. (I already miss it dearly)

Where do I start, Foundry Court has been absolutely amazing. The staff has been so supportive throughout the course of my 3 year stay. The rooms are clean and cozy and are spacious. I've been here throughout the covid pandemic and the staff has handled this difficult situation extremely well. The property location is just a short 2 minute walk from campus. The facilities are fab from social spaces, to top notch WiFi. So if your looking for more than just a room to sleep and study in, look no further than foundry Court.

Homes for students have dealt with Covid-19 horrifically. This doesn't help the fact that Foundry Court is one of the worst student accommodations I have stayed at. Mice in the rooms and kitchen, never enough hot water, constant maintenance issues, leaks in the kitchen windows, poor communication, lack of care of financial situations and a terrible postage system. Do NOT book with HFS and do NOT stay at Foundry. Plenty of other student accommodations in Preston which are better and cheaper.

Place is a hidden gem in preston , you get way more for what you pay , by far the best halls I've been in by miles, and I've been in a few. Maintenance are always on top of any requests you put in most of it done in a day or two and sometimes on the same day!! . Management and admin staff are super friendly and will do everything they can to make you feel like you comfortable and enjoy your time. Security is always around so no issues if you get locked out or if you burnt your toast by accident and accidentally waking up your block at 3am Oooppss :). I absolutely recommend this place hand on heart you won't find a better deal for halls in Preston. Will definitely miss everyone when I eventually have to leave although I'm sure they will be glad that I have left
