Hi! My name is Georgia and I’m a third-year Lancaster University student studying history. I just wanted to say that almost every society I have joined has been very friendly and a nice place to meet people and make friends. I have attended the women’s football, mountaineering, and baking societies and they’ve all been great. I also did taster sessions at some other societies (like caving) which were great too. I don’t know about the LGBTQ+ society, but societies in general are a great way to meet new people and I would recommend trying as many as you can find that you might enjoy.
In terms of LGBTQ+ support, it’s pretty open at Lancaster I’ve found- one of the nightclubs (generation) is technically a LGBTQ+ club and everyone goes there regardless of whether they’re part of the community or not. The small size of Lancaster definitely gives a feeling of safety for all students, and the overall community is largely amazing.
Please reach out with any questions!
