Lancaster University Campus

The campus is home to a wide range of amenities including banks, a post office, and supermarkets. There's even a bakery, a hairdresser, and charity shop! With dozens of places to eat and drink across the campus, including nine college bars and a range of restaurants to suit all budgets, you'll never be too far away from a bite to eat either!

Our £20m Sports Centre and outdoor facilities are available to guests of the University, including conference delegates and those staying on residential courses. Guests are also encouraged to utilise our Trim Trail & Woodland Walk which covers 2.6 miles and 11 exercise stations around the campus.

Within the sports centre we offer a climbing wall, created with input from Sir Chris Bonnington, an 8 lane 25m length swimming pool, 8 badminton courts, a 100 station gym and much more.

Our campus is also brimming with culture and boasts its own theatre, art gallery and concert series. The Nuffield Theatre is one of the largest professional studio theatres in Europe and often hosts public performances of theatre, contemporary dance and live art from the UK and abroad.

The Peter Scott Gallery is a small contemporary art gallery. Open to the public (free of charge) it is home to the University's international art collection, which includes Japanese and Chinese art, antiquities, works by twentieth century British artists and prints by significant European names such as Dürer, Miró, Ernst and Vasarely.

Campus is also home to our multi-faith Chaplaincy Centre, which has facilities for the Baha'i, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Islam and Jewish faiths and a Muslim Prayer Room.

Our vast greenfield site offers wonderful views of mountains and sea, yet the campus is just a 5 minute drive from junction 33 of the M6 motorway, and ten minutes from the main West Coast railway with direct services to Manchester, London and Scotland.

As a University we offer accessible routes around the campus which are highlighted in red on the campus map. Find out more about the Universities access statement.
