Overpriced halls with very poor management. With the money you pay for an ensuite room, you can rent your own flat in town, much better equipped and more spacious. The staff is not only unhelpful but rude and disrespectful. Plenty of restrictions, especially for socializing. You will be kicked out by the bouncers (porters) of someone'es flat if you are there after 12. The common room, which is the only space for socializing is small and, compared with the ones in other colleges, it has no equipment. It was closed for refurbishment half year this year with no major improvement. It's probably the noisiest college on campus. The noise comes not from students but from machinery working inside the college. The only good thing is that it is inside campus so you don't have to commute from town to uni every day. Also the bar is nice and it is probably the only social space available.

Q&A


Q
For postgraduates is it better to get accommodation on campus or in Lancaster itself? And if in Lancaster will I miss out on meeting new postgraduates with regards to the social aspect? Thanks in advance!

As a postgraduate college, no consideration was made for us. They assumed we were unsocial and didn’t want to partake in university life. A few complaints were made about this and nothing was done.

Grad College is very underestimated by the Uni, and they will be doing modifications all the time.
