Hi, I’ve applied to Lancaster Uni to start later this year, and am looking at it possibly being my firm choice. I would be studying English Language and Linguistics, and would want accommodation that would be somewhat close to my lectures.
I’m looking at superior en-suite, but would like to know if there’s a specific college that would be recommended in terms of distance and maybe where most English students would be?
It would also be super helpful if somebody could give me an overview of the ug colleges in terms of reputation, what kind of events are held there, the bar and location etc.
Thank you for any help x

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

Hi emilyhaworthx,

Great to see you are considering firming Lancaster University! I am a current second year student here and thoroughly enjoying studying here. Have you visited the University? If not and you are in a position to do so, then definitely visit and we will happily give you a tour. Alternatively, check out this virtual campus tour, it might give you an idea.

In my opinion it really does not matter about the location of your accommodation because no where is too far away. If you do want a little walk from your lectures to accommodation then Cartmel and Lonsdale colleges are situated in south campus. Lectures and seminars finish at ten minutes to the hour to give you enough time to walk across campus anyway.

Colleges are not based on subjects, for example last year I had flatmates studying Accounting & Finance, Marketing, Physics, Medicine, Law and Business so a wide range and it makes conversations really interesting and it is great to mix with people that are studying different courses!

All of the colleges have a strong reputation but it really depends what sort of community you want and what accommodation. For example, if you would prefer a townhouse style of accommodation (up to 12 people I think) then these are only available in County or Grizedale colleges so already that narrows down your choice. I was in a superior en-suite flat last year with 7 other students in Furness College. Superior en-suite is also available in most of the other colleges too as it as a popular accommodation type so check out the website! Furness has traditions such as a 15 hr bar crawl, Grizedale often holds nights out in Manchester or Liverpool for example, Pendle College is keen on music, Fylde typically sports etc that is just a few. Having said this, every college has events and fantastic college support, welfare etc, their own bar, social space, extrav (big themed party at the end of the year e.g. surf, festival, greek gods and goddesses). Additionally every college has their own sports teams and they compete against each other.

In summary, County is north of campus, Bowland, Fylde and Furness pretty central, Grizedale and Pendle pretty central (nearer management school) and then Graduate, Cartmel and Lonsdale south campus but I do not think location matters too much - no where is that far and you soon become used to it.

I hope that is helpful and any other questions please ask!

Hope to welcome you to Lancaster soon,
