We'd like you to move in! Office space & hot desks available in LEC & InfoLab21

Come and co-locate alongside Lancaster University's internationally renowned knowledge base at the Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC) or InfoLab21. Base your entire company on campus, just your R&D staff, or take a hot desk when you need it. There are rooms for two to 14 people, incubation space, and hot desk space.

With business development teams on hand to help build relationships, you can be sure your company has the best chance to use the latest facilities and collaborate with researchers to develop real world solutions.

The university has hosted over 100 companies since 2005 and LEC co-location facilities featured as an exemplar in a recent government report, the Witty Review, on how universities should work with businesses.

Each resident company is supported by one of our Business Partnerships and Enterprise team to welcome you into our global community, facilitating joint research projects by identifying suitable partnerships, and enabling your business to take advantage of our cutting edge research and multi-million pound facilities.

We'll help you build relationship with the wider university community through our contacts, gain access to international markets through our international collaborative programmes, and access high quality graduates with opportunities for student placements throughout the year.

Mike Berners-Lee, Director, Small World Consulting Limited, explains what his business has gained from being based in LEC, "Being based on the campus is of immeasurable value to my business. We have frequent contact with academics from many different departments. We draw upon the academics' expertise, and they often draw upon ours.

"At any one time there are usually several collaborations going on, some commercial and others research based. Above all we value the continuous exchange of ideas."

Andrew Hall, VisionsLive Limited added, "VisionsLive is located at InfoLab21 because of the vibrancy of the business community and the excellent business facilities. This coupled with our ability to establish and develop relationships with relevant faculties at Lancaster University make it an integral part of how we develop and support our growing international business.

"The university campus has excellent transport links and, with the city, provides a wide diversity of culture and local amenities. Our staff also enjoy the historical significance of one of the UK's most intimate cities, complete with a castle and a river, and a close proximity to the Lake District."
