Campus tour types

We offer two different campus tours from our dedicated Welcome Centre.

Campus Tours

Our Campus Tours are designed to acquaint you with our friendly campus and show you the facilities available to our students. Tours depart at 2.00pm on weekdays and at 10.30am on Saturdays, and last approximately an hour and a half.

Please be aware that the route for the campus tour is outdoors and will take place whatever the weather. 

Campus Tour Extra

Our Campus Tour Extra gives you the chance to explore our friendly campus, along with the chance to meet with the department of your choice.

The programme begins at 1.30 pm with a Welcome to Lancaster talk followed by a guided tour of the campus from one of our current students. During the tour, you will have the opportunity to see our award-winning student accommodation, a range of social venues, our library and study areas and a lot more besides! After the tour, you’ll get to meet a department of your choice.

The event will finish at approximately 4.30 pm. This means that you’ll get to the chance to meet academic staff from the subject you’re interested in and ask any questions you may have about the courses we offer.

Sports Centre

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.
