Stroll over Penny Bridge and pick up one of the five buses that take you to Lancaster University. Be there in 15 minutes or take a short walk to the University of Cumbria in Lancaster. If you’re running late, get there sooner cycling and you can store your bike inside 99-101 Penny Street’s entrance hall.
In fact, cycling around Lancaster is the perfect way to discover its nooks and crannies. Get your housemates together for a bike ride that culminates at The Water Witch pub. Sit outside and watch the narrow boats float past - you’ve earned the rest.
99-101 Penny Street shares its location with two other student buildings so you’re never far from someone you know. Inside, spaces are sociable, light and contemporary. Choose from apartment clusters of 12 or 15 students, townhouses with six or nine ensuite rooms or studio flats.
Penny Street wing’s open-plan kitchen and living spaces look out over a central courtyard. Step out onto the balcony to see who is sitting on the wooden decked steps below and maybe join them for lunch. If you’re living in a townhouse, your courtyard view can be enjoyed from your bedroom. Wherever your vista comes from, this space is a peaceful haven, away from the hubbub of the city centre.
Cook up a feast together in a modern, fully-fitted kitchen, the dishwasher will take care of all the pots you’re using. If you forget something, there’s a supermarket downstairs and eating or studying together is never cramped at your large kitchen table.
If your toaster ever breaks or the light bulb in your shower goes, the on-site management team will fix it by the time you’ve come home from class. CCTV, Wi-Fi and laundry are also included in your rent, so there’s no extra costs.
