The Lancaster University campus occupies a beautiful 560-acre parkland site at Bailrigg, just three miles from Lancaster city centre. Lancaster is proud to be one of only a handful of UK universities to have a collegiate system. We have nine colleges in total, and every student belongs to a college, whether you live on campus or choose to commute. Our campus is made for learning. Our library, in the heart of campus, has 1,300 technology-enabled workspaces and is built around a central atrium filled with natural light – home to our library’s indoor tree.
Lancaster is an ancient city with a modern outlook and a great place to make your home. It’s a friendly city with lots to explore and enjoy and a great base from which to explore the rest of the UK.
As well as our library, you can head to the Learning Zone for relaxed group working spaces available 24/7, a learning lab for computers and printers, or to our woodland pods when you feel like a calm space away from it all.
