7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"Hundreds of sports teams on offer, from uni standard sport to college teams that compete internally, as well as free sessions to just try something new. It's a collegiate university and each college has a bar and college space. Each college elects an exec to run events like pub quizzes, nights out to other cities and just general social things to beat revision blues. There's a great night life in Lancaster town, free buses run from campus to town four nights a week. There's ALWAYS something going on."
