Campus in the City

CITC Shop, St Nicholas Arcade, Lancaster LA1 1NB

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, meet some critters, and much more.

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.

A Teddy Bear's Clinic, street law, forensic pyschology, consumer rights and racing cars are just some of the topics covered in this packed series of free community events. 

The CITC shop in St Nicholas Arcade will be positioned opposite Poundland and in-between Game and Brighthouse, and will be open at 10.30am to 15.30pm (most days) from Wednesday to Saturday each week. The first day will be Saturday 24 February and the shop will close on Saturday 31 March.

All events are free and open to everyone! 

The full programme can be found at

and you can also pick up a copy from the shop. Regular updates will be posted on social media - find Campus in the City on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay updated. We hope to see you soon!
