University Of Cumbria Map
The Lancaster campus was built on Bowerham Barracks, a historic military installation from the 1800s. The Keep is still in use today, standing next to the university library which hosts a diverse collection of over 160,000 items covering most subject areas. Across the open courtyard area is the Gateway Building, housing a variety of services and facilites including The View, a cafe that literally provides an excellent panoramic view across the city to Morecambe Bay and beyond.
A vibrant and historic heritage city, Lancaster is home to around 15,000 students from around the world. With its fair share of pubs and clubs, Lancaster has a lively music scene, as well as a selection of high street stores and independent boutiques for you to explore. Not to mention many other interesting cultural sightseeing opportunities!
Life on campus
Our Lancaster campus is set in beautiful parkland just a short walk from the city centre, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
On-site facilities include a sports complex with floodlit artificial turf pitch, Café Martineau, Snack Zone and The View restaurant, a chapel, well-stocked library, halls of residence and students’ union. Current development work will see a brand new teaching block housing lecture theatre, classrooms and study/communal space ready for Summer 2017.
As well as extensive on campus facilities, Williamson Park is located next door, so you’ll never be short of an area to relax or revise.
