Regularly-organised campus tours take place throughout the year. Campus tours run from 2.00pm to 3.30pm. Dates for upcoming tours are as follows:

Our Campus Tours are designed to acquaint you with our friendly campus and show you the facilities available to our students. The tour begins at 2pm in Alexandra Square. Current students will take you on a guided tour of the campus, showing you our award winning student accommodation, social venues, library and a lot more besides! The tour finishes at approximately 3.30pm. Please be aware that the route for the campus tour is outdoors and will take place whatever the weather. If you are interested in the sports facilities at Lancaster you may wish to factor some time into your schedule to take the opportunity to visit our state of the art sports centre, which is located at the entrance to campus. Staff from the Sports Centre will show you the facilities and answer any questions you may have about sport at Lancaster.
