Overview

The Lancaster University campus in North-West England occupies a beautiful 560-acre green site, just three miles from Lancaster City Centre. Across the campus, we offer exceptional learning facilities, from the labs and lecture theatres in our faculties, to the multi-million pound sports centre and outstanding library facilities. Lancaster is a collegiate university and has nine colleges which each provide students with small close-knit communities and a “home from home”. Lancaster is one of only a small number of leading UK universities to operate a college structure. Each college has its own history and traditions, creating a more supportive student environment and opportunities to get involved in a wide range of activities. Lancaster University has the won the Best University Halls in the National Student Housing Survey seven times since 2010. With almost 6,800 university rooms we can offer students a range of high quality, safe and comfortable accommodation on our campus or in the city. Lancaster has an outstanding record in graduate employment. Our graduates perform well in an increasingly competitive job market and are highly regarded by employers.
 
There are a vast array of facilities on campus including shops, banks, hairdressers and coffee shops. A short bus ride or cycle will take you from our campus into the heart of Lancaster – a city full of character and culture. It’s a city without the sprawl, compact enough to walk around and small enough to hold onto a friendly personality. But there’s also everything you’d expect from a modern city, with plenty to see and do, from busy shops and a vibrant nightlife to cultural attractions and beautiful parks.
 
Around 14,000 students from more than 100 countries choose to study at Lancaster because of our excellent reputation for research, teaching and student satisfaction. We have more than 150 academic partners across 24 countries around the world. Strong links with universities and institutions in the USA, Asia and Europe ensure that we work at the forefront of international, collaborative research projects, working on major global issues. It also means that we can help our students explore the world in a range of different study placements, cultural exchanges and volunteering programmes.
 
We have four faculties offering a range of degree programmes:

  • Arts and Social Sciences
  • Health and Medicine
  • Management School
  • Science and Technology
