All members of the University staff are members of a college and are known as “senior members”, known as the SCR. In addition to this, the College have a small number of staff working within the college to look after members’ needs. SCR stands for Senior Common Room.
My full time post is as a Project Manager within ISS. As Principal of the College, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Cartmel College.

Each College has a Personal Advisor system which is intended to provide support for each student independently of their academic departments. In Cartmel, each student is allocated to a Personal Advisor on the basis of residential blocks. A Personal Advisor is a senior member of Cartmel College (either a member of staff or postgraduate student) and will be available for help and advice throughout your time at Lancaster but especially in your first year.

The College Porters
Jonathan, Simon, Stewart and George
Jonathan, Simon, Stewart and George’s (from left to right) duties are numerous. Many of these are mundane but essential to the running of the college. So, from time to time, when you really need the porter because you have locked yourself out and you’re wearing nothing but a towel, they will undoubtedly be in the mail room or out buying a bacon sandwich! Joking aside, the porters are usually the first port of call for the 1001 questions that you will have regarding the college and the uni, and there is a porter on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week during term time. The porters are here to make your life in Cartmel as easy as possible. If the porter cannot answer your query, he should, theoretically, know someone who can.
