Arrivals at Lancaster is a great way to orientate yourself and settle in to student life before your studies begin, and in Furness we aim to facilitate a smooth arrival for you and get you acquainted with the college.
Coronavirus (Covid-19): We know how important the welcome period is to our new students. It’s a chance to meet new people, learn about Lancaster and become part of our community. We’re currently working on the schedule 2020, and making sure we have plans in place to support you and keep you safe. As an integral part of the University, the college is following the latest UK government health advice on managing coronavirus. Please see the Lancaster University Our Promise webpages for more information.
This year we are planning for an extended arrivals period to ensure that your move onto campus is safe and well-organised. Over our main arrivals days of 23 and 24 September, our College Reps will be placed in and around college spaces to direct you to your key collection point and to your accommodation, where you can settle in and get to know your housemates. Our College staff will be available should you have any questions or queries.
The University will run a series of events to ease you in to academic life so it's up to the colleges to focus on creating a home for you and making you feel like part of the Furness family. To help your transition, our Junior Common Room (JCR) are working on a range of virtual events to help introduce you to college life, and once you are all settled in, we will formally welcome you through our virtual College Community events.
Here you will find our Welcome to Furness videos from our Principal, JCR President, Welfare and Deanery Team, along with a welcome to all our off-campus and commuter students.
For more information see the University’s Welcome Week website and please make sure you watch all the Introduction to University Welcome Talks. You can also browse the Welcome Week schedule via the iLancaster app.
