Lancaster is proud to be one of only a handful of UK universities to have a collegiate system.
We have nine colleges in total, and every student belongs to a college, whether you live on
campus or choose to commute. All students pay a small college membership fee, which supports the
running of college events and activities. Once you have been accepted into a college, you will
receive confirmation and be required to pay a college membership fee.
For students starting in 2020, the fee is £40 for undergraduates and research students and £15
for students on one-year courses. Fees for students starting in 2021 have not yet been set.
Computer Equipment and Internet access
To support your studies, you will also require access to a computer, along with reliable
internet access. You will be able to access a range of software and services from a Windows, Mac,
Chromebook or Linux device. For certain degree programmes, you may need a specific device, or
we may provide you with a laptop and appropriate software - details of which will be available
on relevant programme pages. A dedicated
IT support helpdesk is available
in the event of any problems.
The University provides limited
to assist students who do not have the required IT equipment or Broadband support in place.
