Principal’s Welcome

A very warm welcome to Fylde College. We are looking forward to you joining the Fylde family in October at the start of your University career at Lancaster. Fylde was established in 1969 and is located centrally on main campus so that no where is far away. We have welcomed students from all around the world since that time and we are proud of the diversity of cultural experience that this brings to the college.

Our Colleges at Lancaster provide a sense of community and belonging where we aim to nurture a spirit of getting involved in all aspects of student life. You will find many opportunities within the college whether it is taking part in sport, intercollegiate competitions, volunteering or becoming part of our management team. We will encourage you to embrace these experiences, your academic timetable permitting, of course!

When you arrive you will start to make friendships that may well endure for the rest of your life, you will share experiences and the ups and downs of University life.

Friendliness, approachability and support is what Fylde is all about and so you will always be welcome to come to the College Offices, the JCR Office or the Porter’s Lodge for a chat. No problem is too small and our staff team of College Advisors provide a confidential means of helping you if you feel that you need any specific assistance.

I wish you success and fulfilment in your degree course and a wonderful time with Fylde College.

With best wishes,

Jean Bennett, Fylde Principal
