Student Accommodation in Carlisle

Written by Sam | February 10, 2021

In Carlisle you have the University of Cumbria and has around 5,000 students. It also has campuses based in Carlisle, Lancaster and Ambleside are home to the university’s campuses.

Because the university is smaller than other universities, you actually get more contact time and due to it’s location you get access to some fantastic country side and natural beauties.

Living in Carlisle means that you won’t be based in a big city and that getting to it can be trickier than say travelling to Birmingham or Manchester, however, it still has good transport links in and out.

Private Student Accommodation in Carlisle

In this section I look at the purpose built student accommodation that is in Carlisle for students. These are big blocks of studios, flats and other rooms built specifically for students, they are normally located close to the city centre and come with a lot of added extras.

Some of the extras are:

  • Accommodation managers
  • Extra security
  • Bills included
  • Gym, cinema and study rooms
  • En-suites
  • Social events
  • On-site maintenance
  • Free breakfasts
  • Bikes to use

The only downside is that they are most expensive than student housing, however, it depends what you want and value in the accommodation.
