Coronavirus information for prospective students, applicants and offer holders (2022 year of entry)

Thank you for your interest in Lancaster University.

Our attractive campus has high quality facilities and accommodation with plenty of space both indoors and outdoors for you to socialise, play sport and relax. We are preparing to welcome our students back to campus for the start of the 2022-23 academic year, and are committed to ensuring that whenever possible our students can enjoy the full range of campus facilities. We have enhanced our support services and provided increased flexibility so that students can access academic, health and wellbeing advice and support when they need it.

We anticipate that university life will be close to normal. There is high availability and take-up of COVID-19 vaccines in the UK, and testing is readily available on campus and in the local area. We are following the latest advice from the UK Government, Universities UK and Public Health England, and our priority is the welfare of our students and staff. We have put in place a number of measures to keep our students and staff safe, and these will continue for as long as necessary.

We understand that for many people around the world the ongoing pandemic presents a very challenging situation and it may be difficult to make plans for the future. We will continue to provide clear information and support, and always aim to be as flexible as possible.

Throughout the pandemic we have complied with UK government guidance and we are ready to adapt our plans if needed to keep our students and staff safe. This page will be updated regularly and we will write to offer holders directly with any important updates. We recommend that you visit this page regularly and sign up for our email updates.
