Top Ten places to study and relax on Lancaster University Campus

This video was made by digital content ambassadors Becky, Rachel and Charlotte. The places we visited in this video are: 1. LICA pod – This can be booked by postgraduate students or members of staff. There are two LICA pods in the forest opposite the LICA building. The keys can be collected from the security lodge. LICA stands for Lancaster Institute of Contemporary Arts. 2. LICA A40 computer lab – This is accessible to all students using a library card to enter via the back entrance of the LICA building. Once inside, continue straight through a set of doors and the computer lab is on the left. There are 20 computers for use when the room is not booked for teaching. 3. Alex square – The square is situated at the heart of campus, above the underpass, in between the north and south spine. It allows entry to the library and the learning zone. There are multiple outlets around the square including: juicafe, Greggs, WHSmith, Santander, Costa Coffee, Barclays and more. 4. Outside the Ruskin – Here is a stretch of grass between the main library and the Ruskin which provides a perfect place to sit and relax in the sun. 5. LEC atrium – Situated in the Lancaster Environment Centre buildings, the newly refurbished atrium is a great spot for a more relaxed study space. From the spine, enter LEC and follow signs for the atrium and teaching laboratories by turning right past the toilets, and following the outdoor path. 6. Bonington steps – These steps face the postgraduate statistics centre and make a great place to sit in the sun and watch the ducks! These steps are near to Fylde college and Fylde and Furness accommodation. 7. Woodland walk – the 2.6 mile route around campus provides a chance to take a break and go for a walk. It also includes the trim trail which encourages you to do some exercise outdoors. You may spot some wildlife including birds, bunnies, hedgehogs, chickens and cats. There are multiple points to join the walk including north of LICA and near Infolab. 8. Grizedale bar – During the day Grizedale bar provides an opportunity to study, or have a coffee and cake with friends. As one of the most popular bars on campus, it’s also a place to socialise and have cocktails in the evening. It can be found on the south spine, past Charles Carter and George Fox. 9. Infolab café21 balcony – Simply go to the top floor of the Infolab and ask the staff in the café to unlock the doors to the balcony. It’s a place with great views but its opening times are 12-3pm most days. 10. Barker House Farm – these cosy study rooms are in the Cartmel College hub and are open for anyone to use. There are computer and printing facilities as well as tables for general studying. Cartmel College is found in Alexandra Park and you can access the study rooms through the labelled door.
