Our free 'iLancaster' app will be an essential companion during your time at Lancaster.

In the build up to Welcome Week, iLancaster will contain handy tools for new students including a 'Prepare for Lancaster' checklist of things you need to do, a 'Welcome Guide' version of this website, and a Welcome Week schedule that you can personalise.

iLancaster is available as an app to download for Android and Apple devices. Alternatively, you can access it via a web browser.

Once you've completed the online stage of registration log in with your University Account username and password then make sure you select the ‘Student/Staff User’ profile. This will give you access to the full set of services you'll want as a Lancaster student.

If you’ve already been using iLancaster (eg you’re currently using the ‘Visiting Lancaster' or 'Future Student' profile) you'll have to log out of iLancaster, then select the ‘Student/Staff User’ profile and log back in using your University Account username and password.
