Lancaster University
7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 102 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"There's a post office, shops, restaurant, charity shop, pharmacy, bookstore, banks, the gym, the cinema, the library and everything else that's needed. Basically, there's no need to go to the town unless you want to do big groceries, which makes life much easier. The student accommodations are great and there are different types and prices suitable for everyone. The main concern and issue about the life in Lancaster is that there's not much to do during the day in the city."
