The History of Lancaster University

Photograph of the building of the University 1965These pages are dedicated to the history of Lancaster University.

We have charted the evolution and construction of the campus from a green field site, through its initial conception and early home in the city, and provided a picture of what it was like to study here during the “swinging sixties” and the early 1970s.

We hope that alumni, present students, staff, local residents or just plain inquisitive folk will all find something to interest them.
