Lancaster University has the best university halls of residence in the UK according to the National Student Housing Survey.

Lancaster retained the title of Best University Halls for the fifth year running in the survey, where students vote for their favourite accommodation.

The nationwide survey of 19,000 students at more than 200 universities and colleges from around the UK also found Lancaster to have the best value for money for accommodation.

Lancaster University is also one of just 11 higher education providers to have gained the International Accommodation Quality Mark which recognises organisations achieving at least 90 per cent satisfaction among international students.

The National Student Housing Survey (NSHS) 2014, was carried out by Red Brick Research, an independent market research company, to measure satisfaction levels in all types of accommodation.
