Hi, So I'm gonna go to Lancaster in 2021 to study PPE or perhaps this year if a miracle vaccine is found for Coronavirus. I have a few questions: - Which college has a great social life and offers the option an ensuite? - Is there interdepartmental sport? Like Maths vs English in football? - I'm a big guy at 6'6 and I was wondering if there are bigger beds? - Which accommodation is the most aesthetic and attractive? Cheers in advance for responses.

Hi,

I'm one of the student ambassadors on here!

To answer your questions:
1) All the colleges offer the option of a superior Ensuite, and Bowland, County and Fylde offer ensuite accommodation as well. You can find out more information about the accommodation offered here. You can also find videos made on the different types of accommodation by one of our Digital Ambassadors here. Again, all the colleges have a good social life, but the most sociable colleges are probably Grizedale, County and Fylde.
2) Generally, there isn't interdepartmental sport because there is a large focus on the college teams. Each college offers a range of sports teams (football, netball, bar sports) that I'd definitely recommend joining. For example, I'm in Cartmel College's netball club. However, some degrees do have their own teams (e.g. Medicine), but not many. There are different intercollegiate leagues and tournaments throughout the year, so the college sports teams are really important!
3) There are longer beds available, but depending on the room type. You can find out more information on this page here. It states: "If you are particularly tall, please tell us in the additional notes field of the online application form so we can aim to place you in a room with a long bed."
4) In terms of which accommodation is the most aesthetic and attractive, do you mean on the inside or the exterior? All the accommodation rooms will look the same across the different colleges, with a few exceptions (for example, in Lonsdale and Cartmel, some superior ensuites have had renovated kitchens, which are more attractive). Again, I'd recommend you watch the videos linked above to see what they look like and check out the photos on the accommodation pages!

The most aesthetic buildings on the outside, I'd say, are the townhouses in County and Grizedale, as well as Cartmel and Lonsdale colleges.
On the inside, the townhouse rooms are very big and spacious, but I also really liked the superior ensuite, which I stayed in last year.
Finally, I'd definitely say that it's up to your own decoration how aesthetic and attractive your room becomes! You can check out my blog about how different people have decorated their rooms on campus this year here, as the rooms themselves are very simple before you move in, so you can personalise.

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

Thanks so much! All very useful information and advice.
Yeah it would be exterior aesthetics for me. What would you suggest for that?

Hi Nah Not Me Mate,

I would suggest a County or Grizedale townhouse if you want something very sociable, or, if you'd like an ensuite, Pendle or Lonsdale (which both have very nice buildings). Again, check out the accommodation exteriors on the Virtual Open Day, as it may give you more of a sense of what you are looking for.
