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!

Forced college system which for someone not interested just tries to get money for membership. You pay 9k still gotta pay for the gym membership. Student union is just a kiosk for buss passes at the beginning of the term with 1hour + lines to get one.

Having begun my master's at the University of Manchester I can honestly say, I see now why Lancaster university is top ten. The quality of teaching there is second to none, and while campus or the town may be an unusual situation, you can easily make the most of clubs, societies and your college to make sure your social life is great. Well above UoM and worth 9,000 a year unlike others.

A great campus for living away from home for the first time - feels safe and welcoming. Study abroad options at Lancaster are also fantastic. Teaching staff in LEC are friendly, approachable and happy to tell you more about their course and their research projects. There are plenty of societies to join as well as collegiate sports teams, so everyone has an opportunity for some kind of out-of-academics fun and socialising.

My time at Lancaster so far has been great. I've been able to get involved in multiple activities and have been given some amazing opportunities to find out more about my career goals. The society I joined, I didn't really like as I found it to be too competitive and I just wanted something to keep up my fitness as I had just recently quit competing in it and didn't want to go back to doing that again. I believe that all sports teams at Lancaster are like this though. Lastly, the facilities at Lancaster could be improved, with more space/seating being created in the library or signage to tell people if their bags have been left unattended for 30 mins+, they will be removed as that is unfair on other students.

Academic staff very rude, especially in respect to the basic level of tuition fee that a student is paying; Many times I have asked questions just to receive a more ambiguous and confusing answer (wide range going from a simple workshop tutor to the Academic tutor of my department); Many lecturers speak poor English and pretend that recycled slides from previous years give you basic understanding about modules, while in truth they are barely understandable and readable (yes readable!!); Campus facilities like lecture theatre and library are fantastic, as for campus accommodation they are very small rooms and most of them they were built a long time ago, you can’t open windows completely for “security reasons” but the real truth is that unfortunately there is at least one case of suicide and “nobody” knows why...

The Law Department should consider filming the lecturers and putting them on to Moodle. All the people I know who attend other Universities have this feature available, and they believe it really helps them when trying to understand the topic as they can go back and watch the lecture.

Lancaster reminds me of home- the good and the bad. It rains a lot (imagine torrential) but in the summer the bad weather is replaced by glorious sunshine and barbecues. Similar to home, the wifi is... well, not ideal, though it tends to be fairly fast within the accommodation, just don't try facetiming while walking around campus! The societies tend to be well run and they create a distinct sense of family when you're really missing yours. The campus seamlessly blends urban and rural living, from the bustle of Thursday's market in Alexandra Square, to the quiet serenity of the woodland trail (with a mountain bike route!) Lancaster's social spaces (i.e. the bars and common rooms of each college) each have a different personality meaning that there's something for everyone (you can go into a college's bar or common room even if you aren't part of the college). All in all, I'm happy I chose Lancaster as my university, everyone here is lovely and I would recommend it to anyone!

The student union are awful. Suppress free speech and forward their left wing agenda. They under fund sports teams and over find obscure societies. The sports facilities and sports administration are woefully poor for a top uni which they clearly aspire to be. Eduroam is cancer.

The university spends money on unnecessary things such as a redevelopment of a walkway to include fountains, rather than putting money into areas that matter. There is little to no help available to students, essentially they spend more money on making themselves look good than actually focusing on the essentials for a university, such as contact time.

The students union is a joke, it's nightclub is even more laughable. The campus atmosphere is one of absolute political correctness and classes are not a space for sharing or discussing alternative ideas to those of the mob. Great facilities although the construction work on the main routes across campus are still ongoing after 2 years. Campus wide WiFi is great and there is a fairly large selection of societies and groups as well as intercollegiate competitions. The college system can be a mixed bag, certain colleges and their JCR are an extension of the students union - i.e. pathetic. Avoid Bowland like the plague.

The clubs and societies are amazingly wide ranging. However the student union take too long to respond to students queries, are poorly organised and uncooperative, to the extent that a charity run was cancelled due to lack of cooperation from the union. Students additionally had to organise their own grad ball as the union didn't create one that was value for money

No idea how Lancaster came to be a top 10 University. Awful teaching, piss poor co-ordination between faculties, no vibe of being a place of intellect.

If the money the uni was given was equally distributed between courses based on how many people did the course my experience would have been much better. Art students pay £1.2 million to the uni and still end up spending on average £200 a term of their own money for resources because the uni provides literally nothing - not paper, pencils, sketchbooks, nothing. And yet physics and chemistry and other STEM or Management School majors get all their lectures, textbooks etc included and FREE PRINTING. Shocking.

Campus is currently a building site which is very unattractive and inconvenient when we are not updated about diversions. It is quite frustrating as well to see the priority of a medical campus section when the spine is still not complete and the spine attempting to be completed in exam period! The student's union is a joke, they have has to cancel grad ball due to the backlash from students about the poor quality of the ball. They make life more difficult for students societies and seem like a waste of time tbh. On the other hand there are loads of careers services that can help such as cv writing practice interviews and they are always posting jobs and sending emails. There are tons of clubs and societies for everyone to get involved with and obviously you can start your own if you would like a new society. Eduroam has improved since my first year at uni and they are investing more into the campus Wi-Fi.

The lecturers aren’t that great(especially for mathematics), give you no study break to revise for 13+ exams and also make you do courses you have no interest in. The library is always overcrowded so there are no study spaces unless you get there really early.

Lancaster campus is beautiful, definitely the best part of the uni! However, I have no idea how this is “university of the year” what with the constant building work which has been disrupting lectures for over a year, and staff who care more about their research than their students

Lusu doesn’t stick up for students or support societies well. The university spends money on tv screens and poorly managed building work (they’ve dug up and replaced the same area 5 times now). But they refused to put Braille on their campus maps. Our tuition and rent has increased to fund the building works, yet the chancellor has a chauffeur and lives in a mansion. It feels like the bureaucratic side of the University is focused more on making money than on the happiness and welfare of its student body. That they are more interested in pleasing shareholders than creating dynamic education

Very bad experience here overall. The university is very self absorbed and only interested in generating a profit (largely at the expense of the students that go here e.g. through library and parking fines) standard of teaching Isn’t too bad when lecturers actually turn up. Housing system creates unnecessary and immature rivalry and mentality between students. Overall not a good experience here. Should definitely not be in the top 10!

Very poor quality of education. Lecturers not turning up on time sometimes not at all. Housing system creates immature and unnecessary rivalry between students. The university in general is very self absorbed and only interested in generating maximum profit (at the expense of students e.g. library fines and parking fines). Overall a very bad experience here.

I got here trough clearing and I believe it was destiny. Not a lot of people know about it because it is a quite young university (funded in 1959 if I'm not mistaken) but the fact that it is already in the top 10 UK universities says a lot. It is beautiful, with many beautiful buildings and stunning landscapes of green. There are an endless amount of clubs and societies which allow everyone to feel part of a community. We also have the #2 university wifi in the country. Amazing.

When it is a University again and not a construction site, only then should they expect higher reviews. If you want to live on campus, drop your expectations to average.
