One of the founding colleges of Lancaster University, Bowland is named after the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which sits to the east of Lancaster. Bowland is centrally placed at the heart of the University campus on the north side of Alexandra Square. We are close to the major academic support facilities and the Arts, Humanities, Law, Social Sciences, Chemistry and Physics departments. Additionally, the Library, lecture theatres, the Learning Zone, shops and our own social and study spaces, are all within a few minutes’ walk from our residences.

Why Bowland College?

We have a warm and friendly community, and a vibrant and diverse range of students, fostering a spirit of regard for others, and aiming to ensure that everyone can access all of the opportunities the College and the University has to offer. In Bowland we aim to lead developments in College life and to be at the center of University activity. We seek to develop College identity and pride in Bowland with our students and staff by pursuing excellence in everything we do.‌
