Students in the Library in front of the Green Wall

Congratulations! You’ve got your Clearing place to come and study with us at Lancaster University in 2023. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the University.

Here are a few things you need to do.

Clearing offer holder events

Once you receive an offer through Clearing, you’ll be invited to one of our exclusive Clearing offer holder events. These occur both in person and online, allowing you to discover our campus and learn more about your course. You’ll receive details of this and other helpful information once you’ve been made an offer, so keep an eye on your emails!

Clearing events


You can apply for accommodation at Lancaster University as soon as your place is confirmed through UCAS. We will be in touch with you by email to let you know how to book your accommodation.

For Clearing applicants, we guarantee on-campus accommodation provided you meet the eligibility criteria set out in our Clearing accommodation offer.

In the meantime, you can find more information about choosing your college and accommodation on our welcome pages, or call our Accommodation team on +44 (0)1524 594910.
