About Blackburn College

Blackburn College has a heritage going back 125 years, and is the one of the largest and most successful colleges in the country with the Ofsted accolade of Grade One, Outstanding in all areas. Since the opening of the University Centre in 2009 we have gone from strength to strength, proactively engaging with businesses in the development of many of our vocational and degree level courses; enabling us to meet local, regional, national and international needs at a time of constant change and development. As a result we have a reputation for producing learners and graduates that are highly sought after by employers. 

Today Blackburn College delivers courses from entry level up to Masters Level to 16,000 full and part-time students from across the globe. While such accolades are pleasing there is never scope for resting on our laurels. The next stage in our development that will support future curriculum needs will see the extension of our £65 million Student Village. This includes a state-of the-art Regional Automotive Technology Hub (RATH) which opened in September 2014 built in partnership with industry and a new £13.5 million Blackburn Sport and Leisure Centre built in collaboration with Blackburn with Darwen Council which opened in March 2015.

Residential Accommodation

Blackburn College has its very own Residential Accommodation, The Dwelling which is a five minute walk from the main Blackburn College campus and consists of 18 study bedrooms which include a choice of single or double bedrooms, en-suite rooms and Pods (which are self-contained flats) and they include a desk and wardrobe and chest of drawers.

The development is split over three floors and each floor has access to 1 or 2 bathrooms and 1 kitchen. These facilities are shared with other students within your block. You may be required to pay for your accommodation up front in a one off instalment prior to your arrival. Until we have received this payment we cannot guarantee you a room.

Homestay Accommodation

During your study period you will have your own bedroom and study area within the household. All utility bills are included with this accommodation and you won’t need to provide towels, bedding or kitchen equipment as that’s all included too! Home stay families expect you to mix with other family members and help out with household chores.

Our host families come from a range of backgrounds. You might find that your host family is a family or a single person who has rented out one of their rooms. You might find that your host family has younger children – or a family pet. We will try and match any requirements you might have with your host family. Host family accommodation generally have Internet access but this might not be Wifi.

You can choose either room-only or a half-board basis. Half-board basis means your breakfast and evening meal will be provided.
