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

There a few things you now need to do.


You can apply for accommodation at Lancaster University as soon as your place is confirmed through UCAS. For Clearing and Adjustment applicants, we can guarantee you an offer of a room in accommodation owned, managed or approved by the University for the first year of your degree. We will be in touch directly with you by email to go through the process of applying for accommodation. In the meantime, you may find out more about accommodation, fees and our Colleges on our Accommodation pages or by calling the Accommodation team on +44 (0)1524 594910.

Student funding and fees

If you are eligible for a UK funding, there are some things you will need to do now to make sure your student loans (tuition and maintenance) are paid on time.

Fee information may be found on our Fees and Funding pages.
