The Campus and City

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.

On joining the University you become part of Graduate College providing a student community and support.

There are a vast array of other facilities on campus including shops, banks, hairdressers and coffee shops. The campus has its own nursery and family accommodation. 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.
