​Lancaster University has won five awards in the National Student Housing Survey’s Accommodation Awards 2012.

Almost 19,000 students from more than 120 universities and colleges across the UK took part in the survey, which measures satisfaction levels with all types of accommodation.

Lancaster has retained its title of Best University Halls for the third year running, a title given to the institution demonstrating the highest levels of student satisfaction amongst residents.

The University also won the Best Moving In Experience for the first time and retained the title of Best Booking Experience.

The awards for Best Learning Environment and Best Individual Accommodation were also retained for the second year running, although these are for the Fylde College Residences instead of the Grizedale Townhouses.

Lancaster University has also held onto the International Student Accommodation Quality Mark, which recognises organisations achieving at least a 90% satisfaction rate among international students.  Lancaster is one of only five holders of this Quality Mark, including private sector operators.

Director of Student Based Services Tom Finnigan said: “We’re delighted that students are so pleased with the service we offer which is a credit to all the teams involved in delivering excellent student support and quality facilities.

"Everyone coming to study at Lancaster University can be assured of excellent accommodation and we are constantly working to develop and improve what we offer further.”
