All Colleges at Lancaster charge a one-off membership fee, set by the University. The standard undergraduate fee is payable once and lasts whilst you are a student and is set at £40; if you are studying for a year or less, the fee is £15.
Lancaster is one of a few collegiate universities in the UK and gives you opportunities and experiences more than just living in halls of residences. Membership fees are spent entirely on supporting College life including social events run by the Lonsdale JCR. The fee also helps support the College Advisor system, maintaining welfare in the College. So please do use your membership by joining in college life being an active and engaged member of Lonsdale. You can always stand for a position on the JCR which is a great way to get involved, shape policy and is great experience for future life.
