Working at Lancaster

Lancaster is a Top 10 university set in 360 acres of parkland. Since 2003 we have invested in excess of £450m in new college residential and social facilities, new and refurbished teaching spaces and new research facilities.

Our performance in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework has placed us amongst the top universities in the UK, and this reflects our increasing portfolio of regional, national and international research partnerships, and our outstanding record for teaching quality. Our renowned collegiate system also encourages interactions between staff and students and provides the opportunity to build up interdisciplinary work.

The University campus is just three miles from Lancaster city centre, and we remain very much a part of the city, with our cultural and recreational facilities – including a new £20m sports centre, theatre studio, art gallery, concert hall, and multi-faith chaplaincy centre – open and available to the community.

The campus is home to dozens of shops including two banks, a post office, supermarket, hairdresser and bookshop, as well as a variety of bars, restaurants and cafés across our nine colleges. Other on-site facilities include a full-service garage, an Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ pre-school centre, and health services including an NHS doctor’s surgery, a pharmacy and private dentist.

We also offer our staff a comprehensive set of benefits.
