Campus In The City Is Back!

8th February 2018

Lancaster University's Campus in the City (CITC) initiative will be back with a bang on 24th February, with an exciting launch event planned. After an official launch ceremony from 11am, visitors can take a 3D tour of the body, learn some circus skills, create some snot to take home, and much more.

Campus in the City (CITC) is a five week project which sees Lancaster University's world class research brought to life in an informal and accessible setting in St Nicholas Arcades. Now in its fourth season, CITC brings local people, academics and students together through an exciting programme of free and interactive activities which explore a wide range of topics, including child development, green technology, social media psychology, practical legal advice and the human body. Aiming to challenge, inspire and inform, it also provides opportunities for the local community to get involved with research projects, helping to shape the world around us.

The CITC shop in St Nicholas Arcades will be positioned opposite Poundland and in-between Game and Brighthouse, and will be open from Wednesday to Saturday. The first day will be Saturday 24th February and the shop will close on Saturday 31st March. All events are free and open to everyone.

The full programme can be found at regular updates will be posted on Facebook (, Twitter (@CampusintheCity) and Instagram (campusinthecity), so you can follow the team to find out more!
