By meeting us at an open day we’re sure you’ll find the answers to all those questions and any others you might have.

What to expect at an open day

Seeing is believing and we think the best way to get to know Lancaster is to visit us. But, what sort of thing will you experience at an open day?

Campus is waiting to be explored

Discover your potential favourite seat in the library, take a look at the spaces you’ll socialise in, and start to see if you can picture yourself on campus. Whether you choose to take a guided tour, or, look around on your own our open days are a great opportunity to explore.

Get to know your department

Staff and students from the course you're interested in are on hand to help. Get into the details about your course, talk to staff about how you’ll learn, chat to current students about their experiences, and take a look around the department space and facilities.

Meet your college

Your college will likely be your physical home in your first year, but also the first port of call for support, socialising, and so much more. At an open day, you can meet college staff, take a look around some of the unique college spaces and take a tour of some of the accommodation on offer.
