Cable Street - Lancaster

Cable Street makes an ideal student home for undergraduates or postgraduates located right in the heart of Lancaster city centre with easy access to everything you might need. Students enjoy a prime location with a social life right on their doorstep, yet within easy reach of their studies.

The Cable Street property perfectly blends the old with the new. While part of the accommodation is a result of the conversion of a pair of Grade 2 listed Georgian townhouses, the remainder is purpose built. It’s this blend of character features, modern comforts and a real sense of the community that creates a unique student living experience.

There is a choice of 233 bedrooms within 53 individual apartments, with shared bathroom and lounge kitchen facilities. The apartments are presented in 3, 4 and 5-bedroom layouts. Group and individual applications are welcome from students at Lancaster University and the University of Cumbria.

Prime Student Living is the only private student accommodation provider in Lancaster to offer a Washer Dryer in every kitchen – that means no queuing and no hanging around, saving you a fortune at the laundrette!

Free bike storage is available on site and there are a limited number of chargeable car parking spaces

Payment Options

Payment can be made using one of the following options:

1) A single payment in advance. 
2) Three termly payments.


Following a successful application all we require is your deposit payment of £150 to secure your room. This deposit is subject to the cancellation policy; see below.

Please note that payment of the deposit is a term of the tenancy agreement. The deposit will be returned at the end of the tenancy less any deductions for breakages, damages or losses by the tenant.

Prices and Booking Information

**Utility charges are included in the rent and are subject to the Landlord’s Fair Usage Policy (described more fully in the Tenancy Agreement). Termly payment plans are only available to those with a UK based guarantor. If no UK based guarantor is provided, the prospective tenant will be required to pay annually before the Tenancy starts. 

You must be sure that you have the funds available to pay the Termly instalments.
You must not rely upon student loan payments.
Late payment charges will be incurred on any late payments



1) Unless the Tenancy Agreement has already commenced, you may cancel your Tenancy Agreement (by giving us written notice of cancellation), at any time during the period ending on the date 14 days after the date we confirm your booking is complete (the "Initial Cancellation Period”). If you cancel the Tenancy Agreement in these circumstances, we will make no charge and will return to you your Deposit in full.

2) Outside the Initial Cancellation Period, you will remain liable for the full contractual rent until a replacement tenant is found for your Room. If a replacement tenant is found for your Room, we will release you from your Tenancy Agreement with effect from the start date of the new tenancy agreement.

What our residents say

  • The thing that I like most about Cable Street is the fact that we have these living room areas. Where I live the sofas are fantastic, they’ve got reclining chairs and things like that
  • It’s really comfortable a good social space. They’ve got all the things you need as well, like for example the bathroom facilities are fine and the cooking facilities work well and the maintenance here is good.
  • I’d really recommend living on Cable Street because it’s a really good location. We’re opposite the bus station so literally we just need to cross the road, there are lots of things nearby
  • We’ve got a secure bike store on site so if you don’t feel like taking the bus and you’re a biker then we’ve got facilities for bikes as well!
  • Cable Street provides your washer and dryer and your dishwasher, it just means that it just makes life a little bit easier here
  • I’ve lived here for two years now and had no problems at all and I’ve really enjoyed living here
