About U-student Carlisle

U-student student accommodation located on John Street, Carlisle offers affordable and top quality student living in close proximity to the city centre. You can easily reach the University of Cumbria campus in 25 minutes walk or a 15 minutes short bus ride. You can choose to live in an ensuite room in a fully furnished shared flat and avail benefits of facilities like bike storage, cleaning services, around-the-clock support and onsite laundry.

University life is not only about studies; rather it is about meeting new people and forming everlasting friendships! At U-student Carlisle you can choose to live in an en-suite room and have all the privacy you need and enjoy a stimulating social space with your flatmates as well. Each room comes with a comfortable bed, study desk, more than plenty storage and ensuite shower. Each flat has a provision for a communal kitchen and lounge area, a perfect space to come home to; to relax, unwind and spend time with friends. A recommended icebreaker exercise is cooking a meal together, which will also give you a chance to get to know your flatmates better. If you do end up making a mess of the kitchen in the process, don’t you worry because the cleaning services will tidy up your communal spaces quite regularly! U-student student accommodation has a lift; for times when you want to get to your room with minimum effort and the stairs seem like a steep mountain! Many of you will be commuting by bikes; therefore, you can park them securely in the bike storage. The onsite laundry area will allow you to save time, commute and you can do laundry at your own convenience.

There are some pubs, cafes and restaurants within short walking distances from U-student student accommodation Carlisle. Café Sol has excellent coffee and is only 8 minutes walk, so you can be rest assured you will get that much-needed kick of caffeine to gear up for the long day of lectures. For a casual evening with friends, for a few rounds of drinks and appetizers, you must try out Thin White Duke and the Fat Fingers pubs, just a little over five minutes’ walk. For those of you, who haven’t mastered cooking skills yet; The Good Year Chop Suey House and Subway are both only a minutes’ walk!
