was a bit late moving into preston after commuting for the first 2 weeks so leighton was my only option. it’s really cheap for what it is. i’m not making any friends in my flat though, and no one uses the social space downstairs. a couple things were broken and dirty when i moved in.

the old members of staff were the best, but ever since the new manager has taken over, the accommodation has gone DOWNHILL seriously. the office is never open, its always unclean, the laundry is overpriced and she clearly doesn't know how to run an accommodation. The only thing that is great about the accommodation is the wifi, but everything else has gone down hill. The receptionist has left, which is ashame as the old manager and receptionist were the best but this new manager has made leighton terrible to live in and alot of people have either moved out to new accomodation or just left as leighton halls is definitely not worth it

So the previous staff who were kind and helpful have now unfortunately left. The only good thing at the moment is the maintenance team. The out-of-hours security number is a waste of time and suggest dangerous solutions. the rooms are very small and outdated and require a lot of modernising. The office is only open for a short few hours a day. The laundry room is disgusting and is left very unclean, I had to scoop tuna pasta out of the washing drum. In the contract, it says all communal living areas are cleaned by a cleaner which includes kitchens. However, this year there have been no cleaners in any kitchens and the corridors are left disgusting. Don't come here if you don't want to live in a crusty flat.

Having stayed before as a Master's Degree student, coming back to Leighton Hall for my PhD studies was the only solution. Cannot agree more with what other residents have said; great value-for-money, the management does their best to match you with suitable residents, they consider complaints and take up action immediately. Due to the current circumstances, I haven't been able to spend as much time there as I've wanted, but I can't wait to return there for the remaining of my third year.

Rooms and bed are a decent size for the price, right next to uni buildings and a 5 minute walk from shops. Don't have to share the kitchen with too many people and staff clean it pretty well either way. WiFi problems sometimes but its fixed pretty quick, same for other stuff that breaks, I have a friend at another accommodation who gets nothing fixed. Laundry room tends to be pretty busy and is only small but it's not the worst. Common room is okay but I don't really use it or know anyone who does. Office staff are lovely and very helpful and hardworking. Great value for money and I'll likely keep living here for the rest of my degree.

I enjoyed living in Leighton in general, especially very nice in the Summer, can lay down in the grass within the hall with sunshine. The weekly rent is reasonable at all comparing to other accommodations. Enjoyed the TV with a large shared kitchen, get socialised with my roommates for sharing food and watching movies together. There are also some great social activity to get to know about someone else live in the accommodation. The WIFI connection is good in general, no issues with watching movies and doing my assignment or playing games . Also enjoy the reception service provided by Tina and Jannie. Never missed my parcel or letters. I have a wonderful time of living in Leighton Hall, and met with lovely persons had there. HM

The best things I liked about Leighton was the room itself, the rooms are modern with lots of storage and the bathroom is a nice size. The kitchens are ok,considering I had the en-suite plus room the kitchen was the smallest I’ve seen. But there is lots of storage and it’s a good area for social gatherings. The worst parts about it is how hard it is to get parking round there, I ended up paying for UCLan parking as there are very limited spaces at Leighton and is an additional cost.

awful, had so many problems including noise, silverfish, and rats. Not a good place to live at all. When I moved back into leighton halls this year, both my toilet seat and shower head was broken. Had a major silverfish problem which took ages to get sorted. Would not reccommend to ANYONE

I have stayed at Leighton hall for 3 years and I do like it here, the value for money is great, en suite, large kitchens, rooms large enough for student activities, it is great. cleaning of the kitchens has, in effect, not happened this year and the walls are quite thin so other tenants being obnoxious can be heard throughout the building.
