The New to Lancaster website offers a wealth of information and links that we hope you will find useful. It's also the place to check for any updates to the programme, and items of interest.
Have a browse round the relevant undergraduate or postgraduate sections for links to the official guides and checklists of what you might want to bring with you. If you have any queries you can always contact your college office or Residence Officer. They will be happy to help.
We look forward to welcoming you to Lancaster in the autumn!
