While the majority of our ensuite rooms are of the newer 'Superior Ensuite' type, we also have some slightly older buildings on campus where students can enjoy their own private shower/WC at a reduced rate.
Bowland, County and Fylde Colleges all have buildings that fall in to this category, and each will appeal to different types of student.
What's the difference between the different ensuites?
Superior Ensuite accommodation has all been built since 2004 and has a typical layout, finish and number of students sharing. Anything built before then was designed to different layouts and specifications, and its age is reflected in the lower price.
Accommodation labelled 'Ensuite' was built in 1995 and has been refurbished, whereas 'Basic Ensuite' was built between 1989 and 1993 and has not.
How much do they cost?
Bowland Hall and County's John Creed Building are classed as 'Basic Ensuite' and cost £131.46 per week, for 40 weeks.
Slaidburn House (Bowland) and the George Fox Building (Fylde) are classed as 'Ensuite' and cost £141.75 per week for 40 weeks.
