Most helpful review

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 University's "student well being services" gave me complex trauma that I still require therapy to even make sense of what happened to me. they are stopping renewing contracts for any non academic staff meaning a large increase in unemployed people in Lancaster is coming and all because they spent so much money on building work they can't afford to keep paying staff. If you ever have any legal based issue with the inner workings as a student better rush to a solicitor quick because you have less than 6 months to file a report or that sexual assault that happened? nah that's not real you are just delusional and experience flash backs to things that weren't even real. thanks Lancaster university you destroyed my mental health to the point where I am not fit for work.

Lancaster uni was incredibly unsupportive. 2 years of my time there the entire campus was under renovation which is still not complete, so every day we got to listen to the builders banging throughout the lectures. Lecturers often didn't turn up, seminars were badly led and no discussion was had, they were often silent and uncomfortable. Library space was like gold dust, parking spaces non existent, my Lancaster experience was awful.

The student union is a joke, it never listens to the students and is just a money grabbing scheme. The campus and facilities are fairly nice, a lot of the staff are great with you bar the odd couple.

So in my last year of uni i was really struggling. I went to a careers appointment and they basically said to go and look on some websites. I also had a referal appointment with the mental health services and they said i was quite high risk and would refer me to counselling and nothing ever happened, it felt a bit like they just told me to go on some anti depressants and go away

- Beautiful campus - nice green spaces - great linguistics department - terrible admin team, messed up my files every year - terrible system, don’t really care about the individual, despite being one of the smaller unis - small community - not many opportunities - great library - Worst student union - no student union building - town sucks - no clubs or life outside campus - really non diverse - difficult for POCs since lack of diversity

The recent plans to sell Sugarhouse, the only student nightclub is honestly disgusting from the union and a complete disregard for both students welfare and interests which is why I've given that a 1 star. Lancaster University however is an incredible uni and if Sugarhouse stays open I would 100% recommend it to all potential students.

A brilliant university that truly deserves its high ranking place in the UK university leagues. It’s campus is spectacular, full of everything needed and great transport links to the close city of Lancaster. Lancaster itself has further and easy links to further afield which is a great day out as a student - the Lakes, Blackpool, Edinburgh etc..

Wouldn't recommend to students living in as the campus is quite restricting in that everything is there on your doorstep. You don't really get the chance to explore Lancaster as a city. Library is fantastic.

The campus feel of the uni is brilliant and I enjoy my lectures. However the social side of the uni is poor. And with the unions decision to sell the Sugarhouse it's the final nail in the coffin for the university. Without Sugarhouse, the social side of the university is almost none existent. It's hard finding things to do when living in town.

Praise the lord this is one of the few universities with a collegiate system; the student union is virtually nonexistent, popping up occasionally with awful out of touch decisions. The strongest point on of the union is the nightclub they operate for uni students only, allowing for a safe place for fun and wacky costumes. Sadly, they have made the decision to sell the best night out in Lancaster (not a high bar but still) without consulting students properly or providing an alternative. The colleges are a wonderful aspect providing a sense of a close knit community in the first year, providing fun and services for important issues such as mental health. The biggest event of uni life are extravs, with each of the colleges student run teams creating different themes and competing to have the best end of year party. Most provide a brilliant or decent party, except Cartmel who like in every other aspect come last.

They only care about how they look outside, to be honest. They don't even know how to tackle racism, Shows you the state of the place, Also the career service clearly has no proper plan on helping you to get a job because they only follow a particular sheet that they are instructed to follow.

Beautiful place. Probably not the place to go if you're someone dependent on counselling or think you'll need it. There's many experiences you could have with their mental health services but all I've been involved in and witnessed have been disrespectful and dismissive. Please consider this, it's a very isolated campus.

My feedback is for the engineering department and for Ph.D course. student. The worst department ever with the terrible head of department. He is using all the recourses in the lab and if you have lab work it is impossible to find a technician who is free.

Campus experience was great, Wi-fi went down constantly and was overtrafficked, the SU is notoriously poor and failed to deliver on a regular basis. In three years they didn’t successfully sell tickets without a server failure (no exaggeration). Clubs and societies are excellent but one had recent scandal for racist and homophobic messages on shirts.

It’s a really friendly university and the students are mostly lovely. The campus is very safe and well-lit at night. The nightlife isn’t great, but there is enough around town to have a good night. The careers service is incredible and you can use it even after you graduate. The only issue I’ve had personally is with certain lecturers who are unfair, but this obviously isn’t across the board.

Whilst the university has promise, constant building work along the main throughfare has been disruptive and an SU which refuses to properly combine with the collegiate system, work alongside it or replace/be replaced by it means that the student's needs are ignored by the SU in favour of flashy publicity moves. Many smaller interest societies are ignored by the SU and there is no reliable access to them. The university is excellent but the Union is pointless.

I’ve mostly enjoyed my first year, living on campus was ok and the accommodation was very good but found it quite noisy which impacted my sleep. I’m not impressed with the student union who shut down the uni radio for absolutely no reason, used the excuse of not being able to afford it and turned down the radios offer to become volunteer run. They take more students than they should so teaching hours are late and lots of people I know have exams of Saturdays.

Really good careers service and system in place to benefit your future, campus is easily negotiable, plenty of societies and clubs, college system means anybody can be in a football or netball team without being uni quality, Students Union communication is quite weak but services are still very beneficial when you need them.

I love the uni amazing campus. The student union though is not the best when comparing to other unis. And clubbing has been not great too. There’s not enough options for people there’s only the occasional event that will be good. I feel like there should be more things to do. But I feel like Lancaster are working on this as slowly the city town is getting more and more new restaurants.

It is an amazing university with great facilities! It is fascinating how it encourages its students to develop their interest, passions and broaden horizons. Student services are on a very high level and combined with an excellent teaching quality Lancaster becomes a dream University!

Love being at Lancaster, friendly atmosphere and always feel safe in the uni and in the town. Only bad thing is that it can take 30 mins by bus to get into town but if you’re living on campus that doesn’t really matter as you have everything you need there.

Compared to other universities that I have visited of friends studying there it is actually pretty good regarding its facilities as well as the help provided in the careers department. The university itself ,by personal experience ,doesn’t punish you for getting ill on a day of a test (rearrangements and such if you provide justification) and thoroughly helps us students in time of need

Lancaster has a beautiful campus, definitely feels like you live in a bubble but I personally love that. I’ve had issues with my course from time to time but nothing major generally. The internet is generally great! Lots of different clubs and societies to join (I wish I’d joined more). However the students union is awful, they’re not central to uni life as they are at other unis. But to be honest we have the collegiate system which I think is better because you feel like part of a family of people you can speak to. It’s really nice. I’m just about to finish my degree and I’d still choose Lancaster again.

Not enough clubs and societies, also sports societies often ask for only advanced or professional players meaning you can't always be part of a sports team unless you have been before. The Student's Union has its priorities wrong and honestly you don't see much of them - they took away Bailrigg FM's broadcasting license despite infintie other solutions to the budget problem and many arguments against it which is stupid too. Also South West Campus loses wifi between Grizedale and Cartmel which is annoying.

The campus is very pretty but the accommodation is pretty old, lots of money should be put in fixing accommodations and I feel like they haven't done that. The ducks are amazing and the uni has a very good welfare service and nice library with a tree.

The physics department is one of the highest ranked in the country but has some of the worst lecturers you can imagine. The students Union is also one of the most poorly run organisations I've ever seen

- Shops are overpriced - Internet/WiFi is unreliable - Phone signal only works in certain areas - Under-developed - Accommodation staff are unpleasant - You’re charge for any damage which is not “reasonable wear and tear” but as that is subjective, you’re charged for the damage 99.9% of the time - Lecturers are slow to respond to emails, sometimes they never reply - Always some form of maintenance being carried out around campus - Lack of a sense of community And that’s just a few things

Lancaster really isn’t what it makes out to be their support services are atrocious and is one of my reasons I decided to leave. There facilities are good I will give them that benefit but their housing is awful. Students regularly smoke in the buildings and no support is given to students in difficult financial situations because they have dual parent families. Just because you have two parents does not mean you have total financial support. Lecturers care more about their research, also, rather than helping the students learn, and although university is your own responsibility to pass, they do not provide adequate resources to aid this.

The university does not care about you or the fact that you pay for a service unless you study a STEM subject. I wish I'd never gone to Lancaster University.

Choosing Lancaster University was the best decision I could have made. I study Accounting and Finance (Industry). I just secured a placement at Microsoft on their Business Operations Intern role. Lancaster University have equipped me through incredible teaching staff and their award-winning careers team! I highly recommend it for anyone who will study a subject from the Management School.

Non existent student union, only hear from them when they’re cutting the budget of something. Lovely campus, shame it’s always under construction. Maybe if they put the money into mental health services or student facilities instead of vanity projects they’d be ranked higher.

Good university vibe going on throughout campus, very nature-y. Decent night life (unless you’re used to the nightlife of a big city). Students union is pretty shocking but the societies that exist are very extensive, virtually all societies you could think of exist! Staff generally helpful, some more than others and very good careers service from my experience. WiFi is top notch
