Hi I've got an unconditional to study at Lancaster in September 2017 and I'm stuck between choosing my college because I know what accommodation I want (superior ensuite).

I haven't seen either of them in person but I get the vibe that Grizedale is the typical "party college", which is okay but I'm not a massive party person (like I drink a bit and going out a few times every month, just not every night/every other night).

However, at Furness I'm worried that it won't be lively enough because it seems really small and I don't want to be with people who never want to go out.

Would really appreciate it if anyone could help or give advice

Hi Mr Squirrel,

I'm a student at Lancaster.

There are a variety of people in each college so there will be people who like going out a lot, and those that don't. However, Grizedale is generally quite a sociable college, due to the fact it has Townhouse Accommodation, which is perfect for hosting gatherings.

All colleges offer a variety of social events and each have their own bar. Although Furness is a smaller college than Grizedale, it doesn't mean that there aren't any social events and a lot of people still go out. It's also in the centre of campus, which means it is a good location and very easy to get to.

I wouldn't worry too much about which college you choose in terms of the social life, because it's up to you how much you put in. You can go to different college events and socials, as well as joining societies, which are another good way of meeting new people and socialising.

I know both introverts and extroverts in Grizedale and Furness, so there will be a variety of people in both. However, to help you with your decision, I'd recommend checking out the college websites and their social media pages, to get a feel for them. You can also chat to current students on our UniBuddy platform in these colleges, to get their opinions on college life.

If you have any more questions, I'd be happy to help!
