The University's one-stop shop for student enquiries is the Base. They can refer you to a host of specialist teams. You are also a member of the Lancaster University Students' Union and can call on the Careers team to help plan your future.

The Base

The Base is a student enquiry desk for Student Based Services. It offers a drop-in centre on campus, but can also be reached remotely.

The staff on the helpdesk can refer you to services such as Funding, Counselling and Disability and provide you with forms you may need.

And if at any point you consider taking time out from your course, or transferring or withdrawing, then the Base can refer you to an adviser. You should also speak to a representative of your academic department.
