A huge range of different sports societies to join for a range of different skill levels. Great gym facility which is open on a Sunday evening specifically for those in sports teams (even without a gym membership!). Sports teams are a great way to meet develop skills, make friends, get fit and enjoy nights out as team! Most sports teams will have some form of membership fee which covers the cost of equipment and any coaching but this is usually very reasonable and there are plenty of free sessions at the beginning of term to try out!×

The Sugarhouse is probably the most popular nightclub and is run by the student's union- if you have a Purple card its 1 cheaper to get in. There are quite a few other pubs and clubs like Mint, Dalton/Glow rooms, Apothecary, Hustle, Bentley's but the Sugarhouse runs free Sugarbuses to and from the Sugarhouse. Sugar is open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and offers Whoops Wednesday, Olds Cool on a Friday and Escape on a Saturday. It's better to drink before you go out- Apothecary and Bentley's drinks are really expensive- Hustle does good deals on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday×

There is not much need when living on campus to even go to town bar going on nights out. I never really left campus that often. I got shopping delivered which is free from most shops. I found Iceland to be very good and very cheap! Try to avoid the onsight spar as much as possible as its slightly more expensive. I only shopped there for perishables such as milk and bread etc.×

Nightlife in Lancaster is very poor in my opinion. I do not like to go out, drink until I'm drunk to have fun...I prefer to have some good places to have a good cocktail and party in the same time. There is not such a thing here. Just a few pubs and clubs make nightlife boring after a week or two. Also, shops/coffee places are closed after 5pm...sometimes even they close at 4pm! If you want to meet your friend for a coffee around 6pm...you can do it at your home.×
Supportive staff, high quality facilities, lots of opportunitiesReport

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.
