Trips and activities
Here in the Graduate College, we organise regular coach trips to popular destinations across the north of the UK. Recent destinations include Stratford, Conwy Castle, and Chatsworth House. You can also make use of our campus-based travel agency, Uni Travel who also organise days out as well as trips further afield.
We offer friendly support to help you settle in to your accommodation, resolve any problems that you may have, provide counselling where necessary, and make sure that your time at Lancaster is as comfortable and happy as possible. You will also be allocated an academic tutor and a College Advisor, who can advise you on academic matters and assist you in resolving any problems which may arise.
Lancaster University’s Student Services team coordinates registration and orientation activities, welfare, accommodation, immigration and careers advice. They will be happy to talk to you whenever you need advice and guidance about any aspect of student life.
You can also make use of our Learning and Skills Development services available to all Lancaster University students.
