About Lancaster University

The Lancaster University campus occupies a beautiful 560-acre parkland site at Bailrigg, just three miles from Lancaster City Centre.

You can find out more about the construction of the campus on our history pages or watch early videos from the 1960s on our YouTube channel.

Since then, Lancaster University has risen to become one of Britain's top universities, with over 12,000 students and 2,500 employees within the Bailrigg campus that is now almost a small town in its own right.  See our Campus Map.

In 2018 Lancaster University's campus was voted third in the Student Crowd's Top 20 University Campus Awards in a public vote by 7,849 UK students.
