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 is an amazing place! From the campus and the facilities to the various diverse students and the amazingly helpful staff! Even the nightlife is pretty fun!! The students union is amazing and they actually listen to what students have to say. The University has something for everyone, so nobody ever feels left out. Overall, this university is definitely up there as one of the best universities in the UK! 10/10 would recommend Lancaster University to anyone!

Good overall Vibe, everyone seems a bit too serious at times. Clubbing is rather awful there's literally 2 places you can end up and that is either sugarhouse or Dalton's and they're both either really busy or dead as a fly there's no in-between.

Fantastic real all in one campus. Feels so safe but yet full of energy and lively, there's a club or society for everything and everyone. The university really put the work in to make sure the facilities are up to scratch and that we get all the help and support we need on our path to getting a job. So grateful to be part of this university.

Some of the tutors are not very helpful and I find it hard to take much away from the workshops. I feel as if the economics course is too difficult for a lot of people, compared to other universities' economics modules Lancaster's is a whole level harder; the maths part especially which is almost impossible for people who have only done maths at GCSE. The shops on campus are not great for students regarding prices, but there is a nice range of shops / food places and things to do on campus. There is a lot of support set out for students such as the night line and The Base is known for being able to offer support. The library is very good and the learning zone are great places to study. However the Wi-Fi in some particular student rooms is not very good at all. Overall it is a nice environment yet I wish that the work given to students was more carefully considered - not everyone has entered uni as experts.

By New Student On 23rd January 18 verified Verified student

The Campus will be a lot better if ever the University stops with its poorly planned and never ending "Developments", but I don't think the Spine (the central walking route) will ever be fully open whilst I attend this University. Hopefully the planned new campus expansion will take the minds and money elsewhere, though goodness knows if that will be before 2030. The various societies vary massively in quality based almost totally on the students running said societies. The Philosophy Society is especially interesting for me though, as it takes a more serious look at various overarching issues rather than getting bogged down in the "Real World". The Students Union is a body with little real power, and essentially acts as another body of the University rather than the semi-autonomous representative body that it should be. Various schemes run by the Union are decent, but there is a total disconnect between the Union and the student body, which in turn discredits and weakens it.

The design the spine project is awful, it's hard to get anywhere as everything is constantly under construction. The campus is loud and busy because of this also. There is very little nightlife and things to do and the teachers offer very little help or advice, including career advice. The art facilities are little to none and some classes expect you to sit on a chair without a desk for lectures 3 hours long. The campus is incredibly welcoming and everyone is very nice however. It is very safe feeling and I've met some incredible people, the accommodation is great and the campus has lots of interesting shops.The library is nice and peaceful and the college system creates a sense of unity. You just have to find your own fun as the union is useless.

Lancaster has a really welcoming feeling campus. However, the 'Design the Spine' project causes much disruption. Many staff don't seem to prioritize the students or their work. Feedback is minimal, and lecturers unhelpful. Structures given are not stuck to, markers do not seem to follow guidelines, and mark differently from each other. Lecturers copy and paste from books online but don't reference the material. Academic tutors are not helpful and not matched with your degree discipline e.g. soil scientist with a human geography student. Get to see tutor for 10 minutes a term. Lecturers from same module contradict themselves. Handbook guidelines are not stuck too. Very few hours of contact time a week. Have 3 terms, third term is non-timetabled, i.e. 1/3 of the £9,250 for nothing. Etc. The uni itself is really nice, but tends to feel quite disorganized at times. Accommodation is nice but expensive for what you get, and is increasing i.e. first year prices have gone up around £400.

Lancaster University is a fantastic place to live and learn. Off city campus makes it a much nicer area to study and breath. One of the only downsides is the continuous development of the spine, the main walkway up and down campus. However, this shouldn't affect new students as it should be completed. Additionally, the Students Union offers some good services, but I have some misgivings due to its red status for free speech. However, societies still continue to function as normal.

Careers are awful.. told me to search on the internet. LOVE the campus feel and the american style college system, meet lots of students doing other subjects and in other year groups

Fantastic university with a real sense of community. One exceptional feature is the university's collegiate system, whereby you live in different colleges. This creates a true sense of identity and makes socialising much easier.

Lovely campus, great facilities. I have no problems with the internet even though some people do. Students union is a bit boring and it's hard to get included in societies.

Great uni, campus looks good and the uni is well located. Wifi should be better though. Also the student union doesn't seem to have much of an effect on me.

Those that are not living on central campus, have to walk quite a bit. The largest issue is that there is no fully covered area to get from the spine to acoomodation on South West Campus.

Students union is a joke. sports funding and other stuff they suck at. Nice amount of facilities on campus though, especially the newly opened "study zone", Sports centre and more. freshers fair was awesome, glad to see so many sports and societies full of people with interest in them
