"I am so happy that I chose to be a member of Lonsdale, it really equipped me with the tools I needed for my future - definitely the best years of my life so far."
One of the two founding colleges, Lonsdale underwent a radical transformation five years ago and relocated into modern, purpose-built facilities at the south end of campus. The college now has fantastic en-suite accommodation, social and study facilities and its original spirit, heart and traditions.
One of the largest and most vibrant colleges Lonsdale is arguably the only college where the atmosphere in the bar rivals that of a city-centre venue. Getting dressed up for a ‘night-out’ in Lonsdale Bar is quite usual. Our social space has a chill out facility, DJ booth, dance floor, couches and games room. There’s Wi-Fi in the bar area whilst the facilities on the college’s first floor include our Senior Common Room, quiet work area, computer lab and Junior Common Room. It’s little surprise our college motto is "Simply the Best".
