About us

Darwin has been established to provide students with a safe and friendly home away from home. Our large historic Victorian house is situated on Palatine Road, two minutes walk to the gates of Blackpool & Fylde College and ten minutes walk to Blackpool Centre and Phil Winston's Theatre Works.


As former students and now parents and teachers we understand what is important and strive to provide high standards of accommodation that not only meet but exceed requirements with an open, honest, safe and homely feel. Find us on the Student Accommodation List at Blackpool & the Fylde College and Phil Winstons Theatreworks.





Most courses run from September to June, usually around 41-43 weeks. Rent is calculated over the number of weeks and divided into three termly payments. These are paid within the first two weeks of each new term, coinciding with the student loan payments. Rent can be paid by cash, cheque or online transfer.


Rooms vary between £80 - £95 per week depending on room size. All rooms have complete en-suites with toilet, washbasin  and shower enclosures. Rent is fully inclusive of all bills - gas, electric, water, communal TV licence and WiFi


Bonds of £250 are payable on signing of contracts in order to secure specific rooms. These will be placed in a secure tenancy deposit scheme and held until the room is returned in its original state at the end of the contract.
