Featured review

Grizedale Townhouses are brilliant for socialising and learning how to cope on your own (because you have to clean it all for yourself - it really is a valuable life lesson). The place is safe and modern. When there is a fault (like a blocked toilet), it is fixed ASAP. However, there are incredibly strict rules. If you don't keep to them, student residences come down on you like a tonne of bricks. No liberties are allowed. So, it is a great place for your first year. It is fun, sociable and the porters are great. But if you want to get away with being untidy or having parties every week, this isn't the place for you.

I lived in a Grizedale town house during my first year at Lancaster university - and although experience I can honestly say it is one of the best decisions I have made at Lancaster university. The large kitchen, lounge area really helps foster friendship.

The college is small, and one other person does my course, so I don't speak to anyone in my college very much. The maintenance man is in my building every day yet we still don't have hot water in the kitchen, my shower curtain was mouldy when I got here and got into trouble for asking to change it, and the toilet seat falls off every time I sit on it. There isn't really enough cupboard space, and the kitchen sink leaks. It's expensive, ugly, cramped, and full of people that do Marketing and/or business.

Great college, most sociable on campus. Small so everyone knows everyone, always something to do and places to go. Only put 1 star for cleaning because in Townhouses you have to do your own cleaning but in ensuite you get a cleaner for shared areas. College accommodation is one of the newer places on campus, all very modern and clean. Bar is great, modern again and has lots of spaces to sit and relax. Barbecue and outdoor seating areas are accessible outside of accommodation as well.

prons: + large desks, large wardrobe, plenty of space for books + comfy bed with a nightstand + big mirror + thick curtains (can sleep during the day) + new furniture + relatively thick walls + additional desk lighting (no need for a desk lamp) + fitted carpet in a dark color (comfy and looks clean) + additional storage for suitcases and bulk items under the mattress + extensive cork panel by the desk cons: + my room is quite dark (too small window) + unglazed tiles in the bathroom are difficult to clean + toilet tank stiff in operation + no shower cord - can't wash hair only + poor ventilation in bathroom + a small shelf in a bathroom would come in handy + too little space in the kitchen

The townhouses in Grizedale College are extremely modern and spacious and provide a great balance of social and private space. The kitchen/lounge area is big enough for the 12 people that live there and the 3 floors of 4 with one bathroom between 2 people are great.

Great if you want to live with lots of different people. Very socialable living area with the perks of sharing a bathroom with only one other person. Rooms are nice and large too.

Grizedale is the best college for social people who like going out and having fun! Townhouse is brilliant for making friends and GZ just has a great atmosphere. Location is great not too far from anywhere and super close to one of the shops!
