Lancaster University is approaching its 50th anniversary with a world-class reputation as a centre for excellence in teaching, scholarship and research. Currently ranked as a top 10 UK university and in the top 125 universities in the world, Lancaster continues to sustain its reputation for teaching and research excellence both nationally and internationally.
Lancaster University provides a welcoming student experience, in a safe campus environment and in a beautiful setting. We have eight undergraduate colleges on site and one postgraduate college. All members of staff are college members, with many actively involved in collegiate life. Each college has its own character, representing busy hubs of social, recreational and educational activity. Most colleges have approximately eight or nine hundred members and the close proximity between the on-campus accommodation and the colleges makes it easy to get to know people, providing the sense of a supportive community.
