All students, both resident and commuter, become members of a college when they join Lancaster University. A one-off college membership fee is payable by all new members, you can find out how your fees are spent and pay your membership fee prior to arrival. If you're living on campus you will be invited to complete an online Accommodation Induction in advance. This will outline what services are on offer and how to get here, as well as allowing you to book an arrival slot.
Arrivals day for Furness is Sunday 29 September 2019, and you can arrive anytime after 10.00am on the day. Head to the foyer in the Furness Main building to check in.
In the foyer you will need to follow the signs to receive some freebies from the JCR, register with the college and then sign for your keys.
If you're not living in our accommodation you still need to register with us but can leave it until it's quieter later in the afternoon if you choose.
The bar will be open all day and there will be a barbecue in the quad selling all kinds of barbecued things for a quick lunch.
Once you've got your keys one of our many helpers will take you up to your room and can answer any questions you may have on the way. You can then move your things in and start to unpack.
Don't forget to take a look around your accommodation and complete the online inventory you will have been asked to submit, and introduce yourself to any flatmates you see!
If you're living in college accommodation your First Year Rep will come and meet you and your flatmates at 3.00pm. If you're living off-campus you should come and meet others in the Furness TV Room at the same time.
Reps will then take you down to the Furness Welcome Talk, which takes place in the George Fox Lecture Theatre 1 at 4.30pm.
After the welcome talk we will stop off at the Bonington Step to have a group photograph, before returning to Furness for the Furst Feast. You'll have a ticket for this free meal in your welcome pack so don't forget to bring it!
From there you can make as much of the first night as you choose!
