Furness College

"Going out during Welcome Week isn’t intimidating when you are part of a college like Furness. Events are organised throughout the week and you get shown around and there’s always second and third years who can help you find your feet."

Furness occupies a central location just south of Alexandra Square, making access to all of campus easy and we have a range of award winning student residences for you to choose from.

One of the smaller colleges, Furness is a friendly place to be with an active social, sporting and cultural life and a strong sense of community.  It's the student body that make Furness what it is and we regularly hear about how easy it is to get to know people, and how there's always somebody about for a chat, a coffee or a game of pool.

Our varied social calendar has included live music nights, quiz nights, Treveoke, wine tastings, trips to Windermere, Chester and Cheshire Oaks, and Welcome Week’s ‘Casino’ night. The popular College Bar, Trevor, has an old world charm, and is situated in the College building and flows into the JCR and a smaller patio terrace.  You can use all of the space through the day and evening and you'll usually find plenty of people around socialising, working or just relaxing. There are many student events through the year so keep an eye on what's coming up.

University legend has it that everyone secretly wants to be a Furnessian!
