Hi! I got a conditional offer from Lancaster Uni and I'm looking at colleges atm.

The colleges that I'm looking at (since they are the closest to my department) are Furness and Fylde. I've looked at the types of accommodation that both colleges offer, but I'm also interested in the culture/social aspects of each college.

I would like to find a college that fits in with my personality/hobbies etc. I'm an introvert who likes to draw and play video games, but also looking forward to making new friends. I'm not too big on parties and drinking though. I'm more of a society/extracurricular type of girl.

So which college would be more suited for me, Furness or Fylde?

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.

Now I am biased because I was in Furness, but I would suggest Furness. It's closer to the centre of campus, meaning you're closer to everything else. Trev, Furness' bar is quieter if you want to do work in there, whereas Fylde is styled more after a sports bar. Not that it matters too much, since you can go into any of them.

Both colleges, I would say, are fairly quiet; Fylde is billed as the more sporty college, but overall I'd say the people that you get put in a flat with will have more of an impact than anything.

Wow you seem so similar to me in relation to your personality, not sure where I will end up choosing for accommodation though. Maybe Bowland
