About Lancaster University
Lancaster University is a collegiate public research university in Lancaster, Lancashire, England. The university was established by royal charter in 1964, one of several new universities created in the 1960s
The university was initially based in St Leonard's Gate in the city centre, before starting a move in 1967 to a purpose-built 300 acres (120 ha) campus at Bailrigg, 4 km (2.5 mi) to the southThe campus buildings are arranged around a central walkway known as the Spine, which is connected to a central plaza, named Alexandra Square in honour of its first chancellor, Princess Alexandra.
Lancaster is a residential collegiate university; the colleges are weakly autonomous. The eight undergraduate colleges are named after places in the historic county of Lancashire, and each have their own campus residence blocks, common rooms, administration staff, and bars.
Lancaster is ranked in the top ten in all three national league tables, and received a Gold rating in the Government's inaugural (2017) Teaching Excellence Framework.
You can choose to live in student accommodation or arrange your own private accommodation. Living on campus alongside other students is the ideal way to make the most of your student experience.
Lancaster University is one of only a few UK universities to operate a collegiate system. This means you live, socialise and graduate with members of your college.
Studying at a large, internationally focused university, you still get to feel part of a smaller close-knit community. You will meet and mix with people from different courses, and share interests outside of your studies. There are many activities to enjoy on campus.
Be part of a student community:
The eight colleges are one of the most distinctive and valued features of Lancaster University. Each one is an individual community. It has its own identity, administration, student executive, social scene and facilities.
On-campus accommodation is offered on a self-catering basis to International Study Centre students. It is located within the colleges, so your choice of accommodation will depend on the college you are allocated to. If you live off campus you will still join a college. You can be as involved in college activities as you like.
Each college has its own Residence Officer. This means you will have a friendly face to approach with any queries or issues you may have.
