Lancaster University continues to be an internationally highly ranked leader in the provision of excellent teaching and research within a beautiful campus setting. The University places great emphasis on a strong student experience and gives students access to academics who are experts in their field, whilst providing an integrative environment that is conducive to learning for a culturally and ethnically diverse student population.

Our performance in successive research assessment exercises has placed us in the top 10 universities in the UK and this is reflected in an increasing portfolio of regional, national and international research partnerships that advance core disciplinary knowledge and address key societal issues.

Lancaster University has a strong commitment to engage with the regional agenda and has a strong intent to build sustainable communities for this and future generations in the North West. Lancaster also works closely with its partners in the region to extend the range of academic provision, welcoming the students of tomorrow.


The colleges are a highly distinctive feature of campus life. There are eight undergraduate colleges on campus and one postgraduate college.

The Colleges aren't solely for students; all members of staff are college members and many are actively involved in collegiate life. Each college has its own individual character and are busy centres of social, recreational and educational activity.

Most colleges have about eight or nine hundred members and all on-campus accommodation is located within the colleges which makes it easy to get to know people and gives a sense of belonging to a supportive community.
