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!

I really like the campus, you library card also gives you access to study rooms and buildings almost all hours of the week which is really helpful if you don't want to study in your room or the library. I haven't needed to use the careers service just yet but I know they are there if I need them

Interesting international students scene, maybe lacks the attractions big cities can offer. At the same time the small size of the place means almost no criminality and an environment where it's very easy to make friends.

100% the best decision I've ever made. Studying literature and linguistics: the three subject concept in first year (for most) can be daunting but allows freedom and if you decide you hate your course you still have options. The campus is beautiful and the accommodation is all fab (even pendle is great). The city is a short bus away and small but has everything you need if you're not looking for the party life people expect in places like Newcastle and Liverpool. Highly recommend a visit day to get a feel for the community and campus. The collegiate system is also such a massive bonus because the support is impeccable if you want it.

100% the right university for me! The campus is amazing, it has everything you could possibly ever need or want, the range of food and drink options is great including a subway and 9 college bars and we even have an ice cream parlour! The sports centre is reasonably priced and very modern. The college system is great, I really feel part of a community and have met some friends for life! Honestly don't have a single negative to say!

Campus is isolated and loud, Constant building work and maintenance, even during end of year "Quiet period". Half the campus smokes pot in public and the porters do nothing about it. Nothing to do but go out drinking. All societies are cliquey and never offer none-drinking activities. Absolutely miserable place, miserable experience, do not attend.

The collegiate system coupled with the campus based university means you are completely immersed in university life and gives you a university experience unlike that of most other places. The main downside with the university has nothing to do with the actual establishment but with the location. The town is small which means for shopping you do have to get a train and nights out can get repetitive. Originally, crap nights out was my biggest fear when I started but to be honest, having a small city with fewer clubs does have its benefits. With fewer clubs, students tend to congregate in the same places each night. That means that anyone who is social and goes out fairly regularly will soon get to know the familiar faces and before long nights out involve bumping into loads of people you already know. There are also a ridiculously large number of societies available and creating a new society is easy which makes it almost impossible not to meet like minded individuals.

Just completed first year at Lancaster. Campus is only small, but fantastic in that there are range of shops, places to eat and bars for all needs, and the sport centre's pretty great as well. To my knowledge, there weren't that many societies compared to other universities (apart from the obvious sports ones). Student Union is alright, bit exploitative. A lot of career opportunities available, from how the staff at the university itself actually help you in getting a job (placements, internships etc) as well as how they advertise for jobs on campus and around the uni too. Internet/wifi is decent (Eduroam). Every so often in turns off unexpectedly for about 20 seconds which can get a bit annoying, but when it's on it is strong and download/upload speeds are great.

I have just completed my first year at Lancaster Uni and I have to say it has completely surpassed my expectations. I absolutely love the collegiate system (Lonnie Lonnie!) and I love the size of the campus as it's big enough that everyday you can meet someone new but it's small enough that you anywhere you go you are bound to meet someone you already know. Everyone is incredibly helpful and friendly both on campus and in town. Although the town is small compared to some of the bigger cities I much prefer being very familiar with the a few clubs and restaurants rather than trying some place new everyday but of course that is my personal view. I study Law and French and I love the focus on individual study as I much prefer to work at my own pace with less contact hours but that is mostly specific to law and again my own personal preference. I have made some of the best friends in my first year and I'm so excited for my second. I would highly recommend Lancaster!

If you are planning on doing post-graduate studies at Lancaster, think again. It is mostly focused on undergraduate and there are basically no opportunities for post-graduate, unless you are in Management School. Also, avoid living on campus, it is quite overpriced for a prison-like environment (that is graduate college of course). For the same money, you will find a whole flat in town, without the many restrictions that come with living on campus.

Lancaster uUniversity is a very nice place to study and to socialize, personally I believe that all the student at Lancaster gain a lot more not just education wise but they also learn how to face the real world after their degrees and that's one of the reasons why I chose lancaster as my firm option.

I could simply not imagine myself anywhere else. Lancaster is an incredible uni that I would recommend to anyone. Be warned though, if you're looking to go clubbing every night Lancaster is not a city uni, we have clubs, and we have amazing nights out, but we're no Liverpool / Manchester night-life wise.

Such a good community feel and the uni have so many events for students, even after the year has ended. They also do so much in the local community and not to mention how excellent the teaching and research standard are.

Wifi is pretty good when it actually works but you have a guaranteed connection to wired internet which is great. You should always be able to do your work, just not necessarily on your bed.

Very friendly, close knit community. The campus is like a little village of it's own, and the fact that it is out on its own, away from town, gives it a more relaxing, peaceful feeling.

Lancaster university is the one of the nicest places to be. There is a lot to do on campus and many societies to get involved with in. The only issue is the shopping variety in the city centre. However, food shopping is easy whilst living on campus as there are several shops and you can shop online easily.
