Welcome to Cartmel College
Cartmel College is situated on the South West of campus alongside Lonsdale and Graduate Colleges. We pride ourselves in our strong community spirit where students and staff support each other to get the most out of their time at Lancaster University.
The college system
There are nine colleges at Lancaster University, each one of which has its own unique identity. Your college will be your home, study and social centre for your time here at Lancaster. Your JCR and college team will organise various activities and social events throughout the year, which are great ways to meet new friends and join in the college spirit.
Each college has a Manager and Advisor Team who are available to support you with any welfare issues that may arise during your time at University. There is also the college JCR, and Fresher Reps who can answer questions and help you settle in.
Your JCR and college team will organise various social events throughout the year and these are great places to meet new friends and join in the college spirit. College life can be very rewarding, especially if you play an active part in it and there are many ways to get involved – just look at our Facebook (Cartmel) page to see what’s going on. What's more, friendships formed within the college often endure for years after graduation so there's every reason to choose us!
If you have any questions, please get in touch.
Lancaster Castle Tour
Ever wondered about the history of Lancaster Castle and what it's like inside? You can find out by joining us on an early evening tour of the Castle on either Tuesday 3rd or Thursday 5th October. Hear about the history of the Castle as a working court and prison, listen to tales of witchcraft, executions and injustice as we move round the castle rooms.
