Lancaster University
7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 102 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"The town is wonderful! It's relatively small and old for the most part. There are frequent buses to and from town. The campus is quite big and has all the shops and facilities a student would need. My favourite one is the library. It might get a little noisy sometimes, but there are dedicated quiet zones. My accommodation is basic, but my room is larger than I expected. My building is located at the end of the campus near a park, but there are student rooms at the very heart of the campus where all the lecture theatres and seminar rooms are located. I love that there are several computer labs and study rooms as well as plenty of computers in the library."
