Welcome home

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.

Why live in University-managed accommodation?

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.
