Picture yourself in our campus accommodation

Digital Content Ambassador Maria takes a look at how different students have decorated their campus rooms and made themselves a home away from home.

A place to study

Our campus is made for learning. Our library, in the heart of campus, has 1,300 technology-enabled workspaces and is built around a central atrium filled with natural light - home to our library's indoor tree.

As well as our library, you can head to the Learning Zone for relaxed group working spaces available 24/7, a learning lab for computers and printers, or to our woodland pods when you feel like a calm space away from it all. 

The city of Lancaster

Lancaster is an ancient city with a modern outlook and a great place to make your home. It's a friendly city with lots to explore and enjoy and a great base from which to explore the rest of the UK.

Find out what our city has to offer, and how you can make it your home from home.
