    Founded in 1964, Lancaster University is one of the leading research-intensive universities in the UK. The university is among the only 6 collegiate universities in the country and has collaborations with National Health Service, Government Communications Headquarters, LEP, EA, UK Centre For Ecology & Hydrology, Sunway University, and UFLA, Brazil. Lancaster University also confers degrees of two colleges at Blackpool and Blackburn.

    Campus and Facilities
    The Lancaster University campus is spread across a vast 560-acre parkland site at Bailrigg which is just three miles from the heart of the city centre. The university offers a lot of on-campus facilities such as a supermarket, a bakery, hair and beauty salons – so the students can find everything at their doorstep. The fitness and sports centre offers a range of equipment, classes, and activities for the students and staff. The campus is also home to a library where students can study in peace and browse through their vast collection of printed titles. 

    Faculty and Courses 
    The academic structure consists of undergraduate degree programs, postgraduate courses, research, and doctoral level programs – business, natural science, social sciences, humanities, and so on. Currently the university has more than 13,000 students and about 700 academic staff out of a total staff of 2,000. Lancaster University has 9 colleges – Bowland and Lonsdale, Cartmel and County, Pendle and Grizedale, Furness and Fylde, and the Graduate College.

You have to think about a lot of things, where to live, how to manage your expenses, and so on. Well, when it comes to accommodation – you can either get on-campus housing or not. Since universities have limited number of rooms, not everyone is able to find accommodation. This is where University Living can help you find accommodation close to the campus.
