Lonsdale Freshers 2014

The Lonsdale College team look forward to welcoming our new Lonsdale Freshers on Sunday 28 September.

Plan your journey

You need to plan how and when you will be travelling to the University. We have provided information on how to get to the University campus on our Maps and Travel page.

Note: A main road in Lancaster city centre is completely closed for around 10 weeks, due to work being undertaken by United Utilities, causing significant delays to journey times. Due to these delays we recommend all persons travelling to Lancaster University via the M6, exit at Junction 33.

If you are planning to arrive by train we will have a team of student helpers to meet you at Lancaster station and a free bus to take you onto campus.  Look out for the Lancaster University banners and red t-shirts at the station.  To make use of this service please plan your arrival into Lancaster train station between the following times:

  • Saturday 27th September 9am – 6pm
  • Sunday 28th September 11am – 6pm

If you arrive at the station outside of these times then you will need to make your own way to the campus.  

If you are an international student you can also make use of our Airport Collection Service, depending on the date of your arrival.


Take a look at the criteria for the Lloyd-Trown bursaries available to 2014 Freshers and apply for £1,000 of funding for Lonsdale College students....

Details of our Lonsdale Fresher Week Programme and any other information you require will be posted here.

If you have been allocated Lonsdale College for 2014, you will receive a welcome email from the College Administrator, Juli Shorrock (please check your SPAM folder). If you don't receive this before you arrive, please contact Juli (juli.shorrock@lancaster.ac.uk)
