Run by students, for students

All students in Lonsdale College are part of the Junior Common Room (JCR). The JCR Executive (or 'Exec') are the body of students who are elected by you to be the voice of students in the College. They also organise numerous charity and social events, including the annual Winter Ball, days out, film nights, and the summer Extrav.

Travel Awards and Financial Suppot

Travel Awards

Each year, we offer Travel Awards for undergraduate students who wish to travel for personal development, or educational reasons. We have a total of ten awards of up to £250 each. Funds are awarded for voluntary activities in the UK or abroad which enhance or further your academic studies, for example, attending a course or conference, an academic project, a study visit or expedition, a cultural experience, work experience related to a voluntary or charitable organisation.

Financial Support

We offer short term College Loans of up to £100 for those Lonsdalions who find themselves in need. These can be made available on the same day as they are agreed but must be repaid within six weeks to the cashiers office in University House. If you do find yourself in a situation whereby you require a loan, please contact the College Manager Julie in the first instance to discuss it.

The Lancaster Opportunity and Access Fund (LOAF) is designed to help students who may require extra financial support and are assessed on financial need. Any award from the fund is given as a grant and is non-repayable. Full details of all financial support awards can be found on the University Student Funding page.
