Below has useful titbits of information of Lancaster Uni. My daughter started in September 2020 to study Physics, Particle Physics and Cosmology, and most of it is taken from daughter, the uni website and other sources of information. I also have a blog which has her journey of other uni open day visits, application, alevels, etc. (Leeds, Lancaster, York, Leicester and Oxford)

The maze map is brilliant if you want to find a specific class room number or lecturer theatre, and it looks on so many levels too.

Lancaster is a Collegiate Uni and has 9 colleges. Here are the links to each one


Pendle College https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/pendle/

Grizedale College https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/grizedale/

County College https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/county/

Bowland College https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/bowland/

Cartmel College https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/cartmel/

Fylde College https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/fylde/

Furness College https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/furness/

Lonsdale College https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/lonsdale/

Graduate College. https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/graduate-college/



Each college has their own porters lodge and a bar and study area. There is a stigma around some of the colleges, ie fylde is sporty, grizedale has more partygoers, however, all colleges are sociable and they have various competitive sports competitions between the colleges which can be anything from dominoes, pool, to football. They also have a yearly sport competition against York university called ‘’Roses’’.

Accommodation

https://www.lancasteruniversityhomes.co.uk/ is a student portal for private rents and private halls.

https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/accommodation/undergraduate/# Lancaster accommodation

Townhouses (where my daughter is at) comprise of 12 rooms over 3 floors. 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on each floor, and the bottom floor comprises of a toilet, kitchen, dining area and living room. Townhouses are one of the more sociable types of accommodation with the living room a main focal point. We also visited Pendle standard which housed 2 bathrooms over 8 students and it was pretty decent.

Grizedale Townhouses above

Accommodation selection takes place in late June. You can choose two options and those options have to be two different colleges. You could have say cartmel superior ensuite, and bowland standard. Or County townhouse, or Grizedale townhouse. Then In August, around a week after your results you will log on to your accommodation portal, this will state what college you are in. Accept the terms and conditions, and pay the deposit.

Your college membership fee (around 30-40 pounds) you pay with your first instalment of accommodation fees.


Current costs of 2022/23 Note*ill try and update this if TSR lets me edit each year.

Places of interest:
Williamson Park: this also houses the Ashton memorial and when you get to the top of the hill, the views are superb. Its worth the extra climb to the top of the memorial itself.

Morecambe winter gardens is haunted (we did a ghost hunt there) and we also ate at the Station promenade which used to be an old train station waiting area converted into a restaurant, and also the kings arms on the seafront. Both have great food. Morrisons is also here.

FRESHERS Week

Freshers Week:
‘Freshers’ week 2020 comprised of moving in colleges staggered over a period of a week. We was welcomed in by college members holding banners and cheering which was lovely. Then you go to the college porter lodge, collect your key, freshers pack and get directed to your room.
https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/about-us/term-dates/ this is the link to it. but I can see the confusion here because its still this years cohort.
So,

Michaelmas term starts 1st of October 2021 on the Friday. This means your lessons start on the Monday the 4th of October (as opposed to the Monday 5th last year)

This means you freshers week will be happening the week prior to that.Freshers will start on sunday the 27th of September to Sunday 3rd of October.

Arrivals period will be 18th-25th of september (should covid still be an issue).

Last year they implemented an ''Arrivals period''. this staggered the unis colleges coming in. So in the case of my eldest, she is in Grizedale ,and Grizdale and fylde colleges moved in on the 26th of September last year, the day before freshers started. Other colleges were earlier than that (I think furness was one of the first).

Because of covid she got an invitation to book a time slot to move in which is 2 hours long. The booking opened up about 4 days before move in day. She, and another person had the same time slot in their flat of 12.

Because of covid you was allowed yourself and 1 other person to help you move in. Yes others are allowed to join you in the car journey, but they can’t go in the accommodation. Colleges have their own freshers week programme. This comprised of on line parties with your flat, also Instagram treasure hunts and bingo to get to know the campus. Plus dress up themed nights with your flat and also kahoot quizzes. I will not tell you the name of my daughter’s team, lol too rude. Freshers week also had society fairs as well online. Hopefully come 2021 things will be back to normal, but if not, this will be a similar theme to last years.

For physics I am going on what my daughter reports back to me
https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/media/la...and1920-UG.pdf is a list of the modules althoguh this is also listed on your email portal as well which you get around a week before uni starts. Also before uni starts just a few days before you will also get a time table of the weeks ahead.
First Term
Phys101 The Physical Universe is in Michaelmas term weeks 1-5 and is by Professor Iain Bertram (subject to change as years go on)
https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/physics/...e/iain-bertram
Phys102 Classical Mechanics is in Michaelmas term weeks 6-10 is by Edward Laird https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/physics/...e/edward-laird
PHYS111 Functions & Differentiation is Michaelmas term 1-5 by David sobral https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/physics/...ncalves-sobral
PHYS112 Integration is Michaelmas term 6-10 by Victor Tseplin https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/physics/...iktor-tsepelin

Physics dept above.
This is a great first term. they basically touch up on your maths and physics Alevel skills to ease you in. David Sobral played the ukelele to students during lockdown after a lecture. It helps if you have done further maths, however daughter reports back that people who have not done FM have manged ok with it.
The Lectures seem a lot of fun, and they also do kahoot quizzes as well to test your knowledge.
You will get 2-3 problem sheets per week to work on, as well as seminars, labs, workshops and tutorials.
During January, you will have 4 exams and the rest in June with results in July.

At present what with covid, first term consisted with Labs in person, and the rest on line. But being on line has not proved as an issue since the lecturers make it fun anyway. The odd lecturer has uses lecture capture, but then she runs it at 1.5 the speed so she can take the notes faster. she would love to have in person lessons and lectures, so looks forward to when that comes, but is still enjoying her course now

Second year onwards .... where to live??
Name:  lancaster map.png
Views: 119
Size:  455.5 KB
Above is a google map of Lancaster city centre.
Most students will live towards or in the city, however you can still live on campus if you wish to choose, but from what I hear, its best to be quick as they are limited.
You can either choose to live in University owned halls, private halls or landlord accommodation.

Green Area: Chancellors wharf - uni owned accommodation and to the north of that the estate leading up towards Dallas Road. From what I know its quite a desirable place to live. Close to the city and amenities, the lovely canal, and student accommodation on Dallas road went very quick last year. Chancellors wharf is good if you still want halls accommodation but private halls at 51 weeks a year is out of your budget. And its facing the water witch, a great pub restaurant.

Yellow Area, This is the A6 1a bus route. So its very convenient for that. And you are away from the city centre still if living in the city centre is not your thing.

Blue Area : Bowerham - Bowerham is perfect to be away from the busy city, and there are a lot of students that live here. If you are going to live in Bowerham, live off a road just off Bowerham road where the 100 bus route is, so you are close by to a stop, convenient for if it rains , which is does. And you are still nearby on bus route to Lancaster city.

Pink Area: This is Dale Road/ St Oswald Road and the roads leading off from there. Then there is Stirling Road, Balmoral road and the roads leading off from there (east of lancaster between the city and Williamson Park) If anyone has any experience of living in this area, let me know and I will update here. I have driven this way before and it is very hilly, on both estates leading towards Williamson Park. Parking, there was cars on either side of the road, so its quite narrow to drive. Bonus, parking is free from what I saw, so thats a plus point.

Purple Area: The Dukes, and Bulk. Bulk is slightly more up north out of the purple circle, but where the purple circle is has student accommodation. Any tips on the estate off bulk road and caton road from students, again please let me know what its like and I will pop on this page. I know Private halls wise there is St leonards house, Caton court and Bridge square apartments. Bonus of living here: getting to be first on the 1a/100 bus to the uni. St leonards house is very close to Sugarhouse night club. Eldest stayed at an airbnb at St leonards gate which was very pleasant and she liked the area, and the convenience of being near St nics shopping centre.

Orange Area: The castle are of the city. There is student accommodation leading off from meeting house lane, around the castle, front of the river lune, New street, church street. St Simons Arcade, king street and China street and Cable street. Some flats are above the shops in the city. If you are to live in one of the flats above the shops, bear in mind the shop and its age. Some properties are grade II listed buildings and cannot have things like double glazing. My eldest resides in the castle area, and the flat is lovely, but has uneven floors and single glazed, due to its age (mid 1700's). Plus if you live near a bar, it wont start to get quiet until after 12am, and even then you may hear the odd person walking past singing etc. (But saying that she says she gets that on campus halls anyway so its normal lol)
Bonus of living here: getting to be first on the 1a/100 bus to the uni. It does makes up for the fact its so central, you have everything you need here. And you are close to the train station too.
Private halls :Luneside facing the river lune. 'Damside' off Damside Street. Victoria Court, Penny street, Cityblock. Cable street.

Lancaster is a good city to live in, so if you think you might feel overwhelmed at bigger cities such as Leeds/Manchester/London etc, then this is the place for you.

Finding accommodation:
Lancaster university homes website
Yellow Door Lets
Escape Campus
Mighty Student Living
Student Housing lancaster
to find private halls: Accommodation for students is a good national website.

Galgate and Scotforth: Galgate is for private residents, so the students accommodation is towards the city. Scotforth has some student accommodation, but less students in this area.

Diversity at Lancaster
As posed in a question on a previous thread on the Medicine entry thread:
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...2#post93727784 Post #425
As stated from Sukhy, a 5th Year Student from Lancaster February 2021:
''Coming from West London which is a really diverse/busy/densely populated area, I was unsure what Lancaster would be like, but honestly I've had a really good time here and I rarely ever feel home sick.

The general population/demographics of the city is mostly White British, but I'd say the student population at the University is quite diverse, especially our medical school and it's getting better each year. As mentioned by a previous user, the city is pretty small, I call it a town lol, but has great train connections to big cities like Preston (20mins), Manchester (40mins), Liverpool (1hr-ish), Birmingham(2hr), London(2.5hr) - so you get a lot of students that come from Manch/Bham/London.

My personal friendship group is really diverse and I'm grateful that I met loads of people from various backgrounds through my years at uni (medics + non-medics).

Joining societies is one of the best ways to get involved in the community and meet like-minded people.
https://lancastersu.co.uk/groups?gro...tional&search=
^ you can see a list of societies here and there's loads under the heading 'International'.

Highly recommend having a look at some of these social media pages (100% not an exclusive list, I've just put a few here):

Lancaster Uni Student Union BAME officer
https://www.instagram.com/lusubameofficer/

Lancaster Uni Chaplaincy Centre
https://www.instagram.com/luchaplaincy/
https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/chaplaincy/
The Chaplaincy Centre is for people of all faiths and spirituality.

Lancaster Uni BME Medics Society
https://www.instagram.com/bmemedics_lancs/
We actually have a BAME society for Medics and other healthcare professionals which I think is fantastic!

Lancaster Uni African and Caribbean Society (ACS)
https://www.instagram.com/lancasteracs/
Really active on social media, they have over 700 followers, close knit community and hold regular social events.
Lancaster Uni Indian Society
https://www.instagram.com/luindiansociety/
https://www.facebook.com/lancasterindian
Again really active society, holds regular events, has over 1000 likes on their Facebook page.
Lancaster Uni Islamic Society
https://www.instagram.com/lancsisoc/
Lancaster Uni Sikh Society
https://www.instagram.com/lancaster_sikhsoc/
Lancaster Uni Hindu Society
https://www.instagram.com/lancasterhindusociety/
Lancaster Uni Pakistani Society
https://www.instagram.com/lupakistanisociety/
Lancaster Uni Tamil Society
https://www.instagram.com/lutamilsoc/?hl=en-gb
Many of the above South Asian societies came together and held a 'South Asian Winter Ball' last year which was a great success
Lancaster Uni Filipino Society
https://www.instagram.com/lancsfilsoc/?hl=en-gb
Lancaster Uni Kazakhstan Society
https://www.facebook.com/groups/157910803649/


Interesting fact: I have medic friends involved in every society that I've listed above, many of them are actually on the execs! That's what I love about these societies, they give you something to do outside of medicine, they are like a home away from home, and a great opportunity to make friends with non-medics and collaborate with other societies.

I hope this helps, feel free to get in touch with the societies that you might be interested in and definitely get involved with them if you're with us in October 2021!

Best wishes,
Sukhy
5th Yr Lancaster Med Student ''

ITS BIG VIDEO TIME! - Morecambe

And todays focus is on Morecambe, courtesy of Lancaster unis You tube channel.
Having been to Morecambe a few times, its a great place to come and visit with friends, and have a great pub lunch. Two places I would recommend is the Station Promenade, themed as an old railway station from days gone by. The other is the Kings Arms, right in front of the Eric Morecambe statue. We also recommend the cast iron sculpture which shows you all the hills in the Peak district in the far distance. Morecambe also has a morrisons, and also plenty of seaside cafes. Morecambe Winter Gardens is super spooky at night and if you get the chance to go to a ghost hunting event at the gardens, do it. Its a huge theatre and really old. Regular 1a buses go to Morecambe direct from the uni which also stop in the city on the way.
