28 Oct A guide to choosing Accommodation at Lancaster University *University tips*
I thought I’d create a quick guide to choosing accommodation at Lancaster University (even though I’m sure you’ve already got it sorted), but just in case you hadn’t and you’re starting to panic here is a few tips to choosing accommodation.
In this guide I go through all the types of accommodation at Lancaster, the cost, tenancy length and location. I’ve also done a quick tour around the colleges and listed what accommodation types are available in each college.
The deposit amount is £200 and there is also a compulsory £36 college membership fee that you have to pay (people are always caught out by the college fee).
If you’re studying a degree which is a part of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (fine art, law, PPR, history, English, etc) I would reccomend choosing accommodation that is at the North end of campus (Bowland, County, or Furness).
If you’re a part of the faculty of Health and Medicine (Biomedical sciences, biological sciences, medicine, etc). I would recommend Furness, Bowland, County or Fylde).
If you’re a part of the Management school (accounting and finance, entrepreneurship, economics, marketing etc). I would reccommend Grizedale, Fylde, Pendle, or Furness).
If you’re part of the Faculty of Science and Technology (chemistry, engineering, physics, natural sciences etc) unfortunately there’s too much of a mix for this faculty for me to recommend any colleges! If you’re desperate to know, comment your degree programme below and I will give you a recommendation then!
Happy to take any questions.
