Undergraduate accommodation

Lancaster University offers a wide range of undergraduate accommodation to suit different preferences and budgets. We have been rated the UK’s Best University Halls six times since 2010 in the annual National Student Housing Survey.

Most new undergraduates choose to live on campus in their first year and find our collegiate setup the perfect way to make friends and settle in. There are eight undergraduate colleges to choose from, breaking down the university population into smaller communities.

Students looking for help and advice on renting accommodation off-campus can find it, along with a searchable list of University-approved properties, on the Lancaster University Homes website.

Lancaster students have a variety of options open to them in subsequent years of study. The city centre has a good supply of accommodation and there are also plenty of rooms available on campus for students who choose to return.

Incoming undergraduates will be invited to apply for college membership and accommodation from June in their year of entry. We will contact all students that have accepted a place on a course by email, inviting them to create an account and submit an application. This process will continue throughout the summer as more students accept places.

All campus accommodation is attached to our Colleges, and the accommodation on offer in each will be a key factor in determining which College you apply for. You should choose one that best represents both your social and residential requirements.

Many beds on campus are now longer than the standard size, but if you are particularly tall, please tell us in the additional notes field of the online application form.

Please notify us of any special circumstances regarding disabilities, medical conditions and allergies when you apply. We can prioritise your application for accommodation if you provide us with information about a disability or impairment. You should advise us about any such needs as early as possible to maximise the possibility of us finding a suitable room.  You may wish to view details about adapted rooms for students with disabilities here.
