Lancaster

107 Reviews by Students #100 out of 422 University locations

Love Lancaster!! Originally from London but Lancaster is a nice quiet town so it’s a change of scenery for me and I'm enjoying it. It could do with a bit more Nightlife but Sugar is good when it's open.

Lancaster Student Life

Lancaster University is a campus university, meaning that it is self-contained with shops, restaurants, banks, a sports centre, and many other useful amenities.

Lancaster city is on the quiet side and surrounded by beautiful countryside, so if you’re a lover of the great outdoors, there aren’t many other towns of this size that could suit you more than Lancaster.

Cost of Living

Cost of living is really low in comparison to other universities. Accommodation is reasonable, and food and nights out are cheap.

The Water Witch Open Mic on Wednesdays was a highlight of the Town centre, and Lancaster Music festival in general... a lot of hidden gems.

If you’re really into drinking and nights out, Lancaster probably isn’t the place for you. It has a few decent clubs but they’re not great.

Public Transport

The X1 bus goes from the train station to campus, while buses 2 to 4 do 15-minute shuttle runs from the town bus station on Damside Street. You don’t need a car to get around Lancaster but it might be a good idea to have one on standby if you intend to explore a bit further afield.

To travel out of Lancaster, rail is usually faster than by road, you can get to London Euston direct in less than two and a half hours on the fast train. Make sure to get a young person’s railcard and book ahead to get discounted train tickets.

Shopping

As any good rural town should, there is a market, called Charter Market, which happens twice weekly where you can pick up your fruit and veg on the cheap. Also in the town centre is the Marketgate Shopping Centre, which hosts a range of popular brand names. The surrounding pedestrianised area is worth exploring too for independent, vintage and local shops that will add some variety to your shopping basket.

The Great Outdoors

The Forest of Bowland is to the east of Lancaster and was once described as the “Switzerland of England”. It is a protected English landscape made of stunning hills, moorlands, deep valleys and fells. It is an ideal place to go for a day’s hiking trip or turn it into more of an adventure and stay at a B&B or campsite.

Morecambe

Morecambe is a classic English seaside town and has a five mile stretch of sandy coastline and is just 30-minute bus ride from Lancaster. It’s the perfect spot to grab fish and chips which are best enjoyed on the beach.

The Lake District

An hours drive north is the Lake District, one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK. Get a group of friends together for a weekend trip and enjoy the hiking trails, incredible scenery and cosy English pubs.

Most of town is getting shut down to build more "luxury student accomidation" which most students can't afford. I love lancaster it's self but it is not accessible at all. finding wheelchair friendly housing is near impossible most shops and pubs have steps to enter and the roads and paving is are a mess. My friend has fallen out of his electric wheelchair multipul times going along what is supposed to be flat pavements and dropped curbs. read more

There are enough shops to keep you going with things like Topman, Topshop, River Island etc. but for an actual day of shopping you would need to get the train. Public transport is irrelevant because everything is walking distance but buses to the university are very regular. Nights out are unusual, the clubs are average but due to the small town and large student population you can easily see the same people out regularly which means you will often make friends with people you meet on nights out. The general feel of a night out is very friendly and social although obviously there are always some t**ts wherever you go. read more

The public transport...

The public transport is very frequent however there is often lots of traffic so be sure to leave plenty of time for a journey. The shopping is good, however it's not anything special like Leeds or Manchester but it works for the area, and with the rapidly growing online shopping. There aren't many chain restaurants, more locally run and can be difficult to find out about unless you 'explore' Lancaster. The night out is fab, again nothing like Manchester or Leeds but a great night out none the less. read more

Lancaster is a small town, so don't expect much variety. Although it is nice enough, easy to navigate and with good public transport. It is also pretty safe, nothing happens in Lancaster. There are virtually no shops, so if you want to find variety, the closest choise is Preston or Manchester. Nights out are always at the same places, there are probably 3 decent noght clubs and a few bars. It is not bad nut nothing especial. Is close enough to cities like Manchester or Liverpool. Also the Lake district is quite close which is a nice place to visit. Two and a half hours to Edinbourgh by train and 3 from London. It's go its own micro weather, so be prepared for plenty of wind and rain. Bu when its sunny and you fancy a pint, ty going to the Water Witch or White Cross by the canal, probably the nicest pubs in town (they are quite nice actually). read more

Nice, little city. Excellent public transport links, even on a Sunday. Cost of living in the city is cheap, and it's good value. The shopping isn't that bad, but isn't that great, but other cities are cheap and easy to get to, and online shopping is a thing now. Nights out are good, but you have to be drunk before you go, and go with people that are suited to you. The societies are fantastic. Debating is the best society on campus, and it opens up the university world, and has many wonderful nights out. I really wouldn't be anywhere else. read more

Lancaster Uni is great. Town is a bit lacklustre. Quite insular but on the whole, it's okay. In terms of shopping for clothes etc, Manchester isn't too far away but there is a small selection of shops. Very student orientated, Sugarhouse is the main place to go out so if you're used to living in a big city like me, it's a massive change. Overall, I like it but would change a few things if I could. read more

Cost of living is really...

Cost of living is really low in comparison to other universities. Accommodation is reasonable, and food and nights out are cheap. There's a lot of eating out opportunity on campus and in town, but not mainstream chains such as Nandos and Pizza Express etc, more small independent restaurants. Nice though. Nights out are limited by there only being a maximum of 10 venues, but they're fun and it's the people and knowing many faces around that make the nights great. The drinks prices are really reasonable and places for cocktails aren't too badly priced either with many special offer nights. Shopping is awful, a very small city, therefore your limited to a small topshop, new look, next and river island and a few others. Much easier to shop online or take a trip to Manchester. Public transport is excellent, on time and cheap. read more
