User-generated content policy

We love to share your content on our social media channels. Here's how to get involved.

Typically, when we share content created by the Lancaster University community we will use the social network's ‘share’ or ‘retweet’ function.

However, there may also be instances where we would like to use content produced by a user in one of our own original posts – for example, on networks that don’t offer a share function, or where we want to share it with followers on a different platform.

If so, we will always get in touch to ask for permission and credit the creator.

If you would like us to consider a photo or video for our social media channels please do one of the following:

  • Tag our Lancaster University account
  • Use #LoveLancaster, #LancasterUni, or #LancasterUniversity
  • Email it to us at
