Furness College

"Going out isn’t intimidating when you are part of a college like Furness. Things are organised for you and you get shown around and there’s always second and third years who can help you find your feet."

Furness occupies a central location just south of Alexandra Square, making access to all of campus easy and we have a range of award winning student residences for you to choose from.

One of the smaller colleges, Furness is a friendly place to be with an active social, sporting and cultural life and a strong sense of community. Our varied social calendar has included live music nights, wine tastings, trips to York, the zoo and Intro Week’s ‘Casino’ night. The popular College Bar has an old world charm, and hosts an extremely popular real ale festival annually.

University legend has it that everyone secretly wants to be a Furnessian!
