Hi
I’m currently looking for accommodation on campus for my first year, and I was just wondering what is the difference between the different colleges?

Thanks!
Ellie

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, I'm a current first year at Lancaster Uni so if you have any other questions just let me know. Honestly, aside from location there's barely any difference in colleges. There's no sort of separation here where people only chill with people in their own college etc., that just doesn't occur here. The one known to be the most social is Griezedale but honestly that's not really true as others are just as lively. I'd personally recommend choosing a college that's closest to the centre of campus such as Fylde, Furness or Griezedale (Bowland is close too but it's not as nice imo). If you're looking for quite social colleges choose Fylde/Griezedale otherwise Furness is a good alternative (it's a much smaller college).

I'd always recommend choosing your college by room type first, then the distance to your department. I think the size/type of college can also be important if lots of colleges are offering the same rooms. For me, I've loved being in a smaller college as it feels a lot like a little community, but I know others who prefer a bigger college as there are more opportunities to meet like-minded people. Some colleges have a rep for being sportier than others but this changes over the years - used to Fylde, now its County - so I wouldn't worry about that too much.
I wouldn't say there's any difference in the sociability of colleges really, although I have noticed in some colleges ensuite accommodation tend to mix a lot less. I think that is just down to who's in the flat though, so that's very hard to predict!
