During COVID we've spent a lot of time in the flat and never really had an issue. Always good hot water, decent showers, clean and good rooms (we are standard) and very good WiFi other than the kitchen. Our kitchen is also pretty small but the social scene of Furness is pretty good and close-knit. Porters / Maintenance will get things sorted quickly. Just wish we had a decent lounge area.

For on-campus courses, the university expect most teaching to be in-person, with courses taught mainly in lecture theatres, labs and seminars as before the pandemic started. The university may retain some online teaching where student feedback has been especially positive about this mode of learning, but this will complement in-person teaching.

Uni is basically divided into 8 different colleges and Furness is where you want to be! Its the smallest of them all so you definitely are gonna be close with some of them and its in the centre of campus so you don’t really need to walk long distances to any of your lectures

In a standard room with shared shower and toilet. Facilities good if you don't mind sharing. Dodgy internet and small flat. Socialising is difficult with only a kitchen and small table. Would definitely recommend upgrading to an en-suite or townhouse

Furness has the best location on campus. It is close to like almost everything. Though the only problem I have with the accommodation is the wifi that works well at times but other times very annoying.

I'm in Greenodd which is shared flat of 4 for the kitchen toilet and shower. Our own bedrooms are great in terms of floor spacing. Desk is reasonable size. Kitchen a bit small but we are only 4 of us here. Its quite expensive at £100 a week but the other halls were more expensive. It's conveniently located on campus such that I could get anywhere within 10mins. Wifi/internet is a bit questionable, sometimes goes unstable

Furness College is the best college at Lancaster university by far! It's the most active, it's smallest college which also gives us pride in being the college with the best community. Furness is looked to as an example of how other colleges should run.

A great college in the best location on campus. A 2 minute walk from spa, sultans, lusu shop and the centre of campus with all the main lecture halls.
