Lancaster University

Lancaster University (officially the University of Lancaster)[5] is a public research university in the City of Lancaster, Lancashire, England. The university was established by Royal Charter in 1964,[6] one of several new universities created in the 1960s.

The university was initially based in St Leonard’s Gate in the city centre, before moving in 1968 to a purpose-built 300 acres (120 ha) campus at Bailrigg, 4 km (2.5 mi) to the south.[6] The campus buildings are arranged around a central walkway known as the Spine, which is connected to a central plaza, named Alexandra Square in honour of its first chancellor, Princess Alexandra.
