Lonsdale College was founded in 1965 and is the second oldest Lancaster University college. In 2004, Lonsdale College relocated to our current home in Alexandra Park, at South West Campus.

All 2500 rooms within Lonsdale college have en-suite facilities & in 2010 we saw the addition of catered accommodation for student living in two of the Lonsdale College houses.

Today, Lonsdale college has firmly cemented it’s status as the most sociable college of the university. Lonsdale College is known for putting on the biggest and best socials and events such as the annual college Extrav are guaranteed to sell out fast!

Lonnie Bar is one of the biggest, and certainly the finest bar on campus! The bar is furnished in a modern yet comfortable style. If you’re looking to relax/ procrastinate, Lonnie bar has several pool tables, a dart board and shows all the big sporting events on Sky TV, via our huge TV projector. The bar can also boast a top class sound booth and dance floor. Andy Shaw, the university’s finest licensee is always on hand to provide a drink behind the bar at very student friendly prices.

Above the famous Lonsdale bar is an alcohol free zone, where students can study in a computer lab or relax in the comfort of the sofas and bean bags and watch a little TV. For the musical students, there is also a piano available to all possess a musical flair.

If you’re a prospective student, feel free to drop by at any point and head towards the Lonsdale Porters Lodge, where a member of our SCR (Senior Common Room) will be happy to help.
