I’ve been in the university for 4 years now and it’s honestly getting better and better Year over year. You can tell that it keeps on being developed and that they are doing their best to aid the students. I love the extra services they offer such as the careers teams, tutoring and so on. I had a week in which my laptop broke and the new rental laptops in the library were a genuine lifesaver. I’m not sure what I would’ve done without them!

Lancaster is a good university. My professors are very helpful when I have approached them with questions about my work, and modules are quite varied. I can't speak much for the facilities at campus, as I never lived on campus and only go for my classes. However, the market held regularly brings something unique and interesting to campus and is fun to visit.

Now that everything is open Campus is an amazing place to be and does not really have anything to improve on, clubs and societies are about as good as you can get for an university of this size. The union does the basics but other bodies often fill the role of what you’d expect from a typical SU.

Great university and great location. I was an undergrad here and then a few years after graduation chose to study my PhD at Lancaster also as I felt it was the best place for me. The management school is fantastic for learning and also always happy to help for anyone who is struggling with any aspect of the course. The campus is fantastic, and often you will feel like you do not need to leave because everything is here, however, if you do then Lancaster city centre is a lovely place to visit and has all the shops, bars, restaurants, etc. that you need.

As an English Literature and Creative Writing student, I feel like my department cares a lot about my experience and I am really grateful that I get to connect with tutors and staff that genuinely are there for me and who are also very inspiring to talk to. I love the greenery surrounding campus, and I feel very safe with the people I get to meet. I feel confident here when making new friends and I feel that there's support in every corner no matter what kind of hardships I go through- there is always someone to turn to!

I visited St Leonard's House during the pandemic. The whole St. Leonard's team was super polite, nice and accommodating. They took care of each and every tenant. Also, special health measures were arranged to protect us from Covid-19. I felt safe and understood at all times. Furthermore, Nicky and Bonnie have been extremely helpful and I am very grateful. I can only recommend the St. Leonards to others.

Some things about the uni are great like the gym and accommodation. Careers team is great. The nightlife is awfully dead , societies are poorly funded and managed by the SU. The collage system is only really relevant if you play sports, for most people the collage system doesnt really do anything. Saying all that very international but if your looking for a good uni experience do not come here, very dull overall.

This uni ticks the boxes as well as any; good lecturing, good social life. Campus can feel like a bubble, students union can be overworked, scale of the uni makes things move slowly, but still a good place to spend 3-4 years.

I had such a lovely time at Lancaster. The students and staff were very nice and down to earth. I made very good friends there. The campus is fantastic, loads of space and so fun to explore, with good food and drink but also great study areas. The library is really lovely and convenient too. My course was well organised and interesting (physics) and support from lecturers is really good. My favourite thing about Lancaster is the proximity to the Lake District and I spent many happy weekends there with my friends, hiking, swimming and messing around. There are lots of nice areas round Lancaster too (forest of bowland, Lancaster canal, crook o' the lune, glasson dock. I liked Morecambe too! If you have a bike then it's really nice to explore. Living on campus is great, very convenient, comfortable, not too expensive and easy to make friends. The free bus to and from the SU nightclub is excellent if you are a cheapskate like me. There is a decent gym at the sports centre.

Lancaster is absolutely tiny of a town with only 3 clubs and they’re all terrible Buses to town are outrageously expensive Campus shops are complete rip offs STUDENT UNION is absolutely s***, does nothing for us and charges you the have to pay 15 quid for the student discount “purple card” which just should be done with a library card for free.

Facilities are great and always being developed/improved. The Careers service provides a range of support that is well advertised. The students union makes some unpopular decisions and does not seem to be highly respected by many students.

Great campus and clearly the facilities have had investment but more prevalent issues are being ignored in favour of impressive facilities. E.g. a sports team culture that promotes bullying and cliques and certain academic departments that manage student workloads poorly in comparison to other similarly universities.
