Hi @anki92!

I am a current physics student at Lancaster so can give you a bit of an idea of what it’s like here.

Lancaster is a collegiate and campus based university. This means that there are 8 undergraduate colleges and one postgraduate college. These provide well-being and support services, social events and a sense of community. I have really enjoyed the fact that Lancaster is campus based as it means that everything you need is within easy walking distance and it feels very safe as everyone on campus are either staff or students.

Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) is one of the larger departments on campus and has recently had an extension built which has included new lecture theatres.

The campus is about a 10 to 15 minute bus ride away from the main town centre and the buses come very frequently to the main bus stop on campus, called the underpass so it’s fairly easy to get into town. The town is compact but has most of the main retail stores, lots of nice cafes - Bob and Bert’s and Diggles are good ones in particular. There’s plenty of pubs including a Wetherspoons & Pendle Witch and also bars and nightclubs - including the student union owned club Sugar. The town is also historic with Lancaster Castle and information on the Pendle witch trials. We also have a VUE cinema, Dukes theatre, canal pathways, and Williamson Park is particularly nice.

The surrounding area of Morecambe and Heysham have nice costal areas and the Lake District is not very far away at all where you can go on walks and take in the natural beauty.

Hope this helps!
