Campus in the City

Campus in the City (CITC) is a five week project which sees Lancaster University's world class research brought to life in an informal and accessible setting in St Nicholas Arcades.

Boy with shape

Now in its fourth season, CITC brings local people, academics and students together through an exciting programme of free and interactive activities which explore a wide range of topics, including child development, green technology, social media psychology, practical legal advice and the human body. Aiming to challenge, inspire and inform, it also provides opportunities for the local community to get involved with research projects, helping to shape the world around us.

Our shop in St Nicholas Arcades (opposite Poundland and in-between Game and BrightHouse) is open from 10.30 to 15.30, Wednesday to Saturday, with our first day on Saturday 24th February and our last day on Saturday 31st March 2018.

All events are free and open to everyone.

You can also engage with us on social media - we're on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Follow us to see what's going on and enjoy sneak previews, and use #LUCampusInTheCity in your social media posts to let us know what you think and join our timeline.

Please note: Unfortunately 'Lancaster University Racing Car' on 17th March and 'Lancaster and Morecambe Peace Census' on 22nd March are now cancelled. On 17th March we will now be enjoying 'Geometry Lab' from 10.30 to 15.30, instead of from 12.00 to 14.00 as advertised on the programme. On 22nd March the University's Health Engagement and Innovation Team will be demonstrating some of the projects and partners they work with for real world impact on our health.
