Lancaster University is one of only a handful of collegiate universities in the UK. We believe Lonsdale is the best college here at Lancaster and we aim to prove it to you.
Lonsdale is a thriving and very 'social' College, based in the south of campus. The things that make Lonsdale special are its spirit, its traditions and of course, most important of all – the students!
We offer a full programme of inter-college competitions for students to take part in. Virtually all outdoor and indoor sports are included, alongside more intellectual activities such as quizzing and debating. If you are not of a competitive nature you can get involved in college life in other ways simply sit back knowing you have the best facilities on campus.
Academically we are one of the most successful colleges on campus. Yes, study is a priority at university, and the college will do all it can to help you to develop to your maximum potential. There are undergraduate ‘kitchen reps’ who are all current Lonsdale students, who will be around to help you settle in. They have been through it all and know exactly what you are going through.
Hello and welcome to Lonsdale College!
Our College moto is ‘Simply the Best!’ and as one of the University’s original founding Colleges, we really work hard to make sure all of our members feel pride in our community. The Lonsdale College web pages have been created to give you some insight into who we are, what we do, and the sorts of things you can expect as a member.
Collectively, the nine colleges that make up Lancaster University are a distinctive feature of the student experience, regardless of whether you choose to live on or off the main campus.
Our colleges offer each student much more than simply a room to live in – we are communities of people that provide a ‘home-from-home’ where every student is able to feel comfortable, safe and respected regardless of their backgrounds or circumstances. As such, the colleges provide the platforms that enable Lancaster students to get the most out of their university experience, from the moment they arrive to when they graduate and move on to pursue fulfilling careers and responsible lives.
All of the colleges reflect the basic principles and values of Lancaster University – they are all living examples of diverse groups of people who are ambitious, collaborative, inquisitive, progressive and supportive.
Nevertheless, each college has its own culture or ‘feel’. At Lonsdale, our priorities include:
