Why choose Furness? Because we are the smallest College on campus and in many ways consider ourselves more of a ‘family’ than just a College.
Your College will be your home, study and social centre for your time here at Lancaster. Your College is also a means of support. Each College has an Administrator, who should be your first point of contact should you have any questions or need advice, and an Advisor team, along with a JCR (Junior Common Room Exec) and First Year College Reps who also help our first year students with any questions or queries they may have. Each College also has a Residence Officer who is available to help with any issues relating to your on campus accommodation, whether this is an actual fault, or a problem with your flatmates. Each College has a team of Porters who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and it is to them that you should go to collect your mail/parcels, or to report any problems outside of the normal office hours.
Your JCR and College will organise various social events throughout the year which are great places to meet new friends and join in the College spirit.
We want you to have the best experience possible, so do come and join us.
