Welcome to Lonsdale College. I'm Keith Davidson the College Principal. It's my job to ensure that you you get the maximum out of your college experience. This page will give you an idea of the facilities in the college and the things we do to make your time at university enjoyable and productive.
On your first day here you'll be met by staff and
students in the foyer of the college. We show you to your room and show
you around the College. The JCR (Junior Common Room) will take you from
The Porters, Ben, Arthur, Paul and John are your friends for the future. Their 'Lodge' is one of the key areas of the college. The College Office is next door. Tracy and Ruth (College Residence Officers) and Juli (College Administrator) are where you go for help, advice or to pay money for college services (or fines for misbehaving!).
You are fortunate enough to be a member of one of the oldest colleges and also one of the newest ones. The building work was finally completed on our new site in Alexandra Park only three years ago. Your , en-suite, bed-study rooms should still be in (fairly) pristine condition and you can take advantage of the study and recreational facilities in Lonsdale House. These facilities include a 'quiet' study room to work in, a computer room to get those essays finished, a Junior Common Room to relax and chill and a Senior Common Room for meetings and for the senior members to relax. And of course the best bar on campus!
A college is much more than a
collection of buildings - the things that make Lonsdale special are
it's spirit, it's traditions and of course most importantly - you!
Hopefully you will soon be proud to be a 'Lonsdalean'. You can
represent your college in inter-college activities. Virtually all
sports are included along with indoor pastimes such as darts and pool
and more cerebral activities such as the debating society. If you are
not of a competitive nature you can simply sit back smugly in the best
facilities on campus.
We like to keep in touch with or graduates (alumni), and on occasions have re-unions and festivals to celebrate anniversaries. If you are a Lonsdale Graduate and you would like to get in touch with us email Juli Shorrock (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post a message on the Alumni Noticeboard, but remember once we know where you are we won't let you escape!
That's Lonsdale. If you're visiting the university drop in and see us, whether you're an old student or thinking of studying at Lancaster we will be delighted to see you. Our motto applies just as much now as it ever has - we're 'Simply the Best'!
