City living

Lancaster is a vibrant city with plenty of accommodation for students to rent, from houses and apartments to halls of residence.

Chancellor's Wharf

Chancellor’s Wharf is the only University-managed halls of residence in the city centre and it’s available to students of all Colleges. Situated on the banks of the Lancaster Canal it’s just a few minutes’ walk from the shops, pubs and frequent buses to campus. Residents continue to enjoy all of the facilities and services they come to expect from us and get to experience living in our historic city. It’s the best of both worlds.
