The university has its own website called the LUSU jobshop where you can search for jobs on campus, in lancaster and even for jobs over the summer term. There are also a lot of employer held fairs for job information and help. Value on campus is reasonable. You can buy items for cheaper in town, theres a free bus to sainsbury's on Wednesdays. You can also shop online for groceries with your housemates and get it delivered to save costs. The university also provides free transport to a number of clubs on nights out, there and back. Costs for courses can turn out pricey for printing fees and textbooks. I'd definitely recommend that you take your own printer and buy books from 2nd or 3rd years or online instead of the bookstore on campus. It will save you a lot of money by doing this. The key thing money wise is to have a budget and stick to it. That way you don't overspend and you know what you can and can't afford so you'll never be in any bother. I think a weekly budget is best to have.×

There is a variety of bars on campus so you'll never be bored of going to the same place when you don't fancy venturing into town. There is a variety of places to eat with a newly built Subway on campus, prices vary from 3-5 for a meal and are not bad×
Course inc seminars, lectures, good online communication, through emails, moodle, student portal to admit attendance, results etcReport

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
