Cartmel College, Lancaster

Cartmel College is a residential college of Lancaster University and was founded in 1968. It is named after the Cartmel peninsula of "Lancashire north of the sands", once known as The Land of Cartmel; the college buildings were sited at the north end of the university's Bailrigg campus and extended in 1969. In 2004, the college was relocated around Barker House Farm in a new development in the southwest of the campus called Alexandra Park. Cartmel college residences were opened in 1968; the Cartmel building was designed by Haydyn Smith. Smith designed the college in such a way; the college was dominated by a number of large, multi-purpose grassed areas that were popular during the warmer months. Extra residences were built in 1969 to cope with the expanding student population. In 2003 Cartmel’s College Syndicate decided to embrace the university’s offer to relocate the college down to south west campus with brand new en-suite accommodation and new facilities and college offices. After some negotiation it was decided that Cartmel would take the refurbished Barker House Farm complex as the centre of their college.

The farm houses the college offices, porters lodge and Junior Common Room, with the accommodation built around it. Along with Lonsdale and Fylde, Cartmel is one of only three Lancaster colleges to have en-suite accommodation; the residence are all named after villages on the Cartmel peninsula: Bigland Braystones Broughton Cark Dalehead Flookburgh Grange Haverthwaite Holker Lindale Meathop The College is established under the Statutes of the University. Internally, the key committees which run the College are College Council, College Management and College Syndicate. College Management is an informal committee of College Officers which meets every alternate week to keep abreast of day-to-day matters to do with the running of the college. College Council meetings alternate with College Management. College Council consists of College Officers and the JCR executive and is the body which concerns general policy of the college. College Syndicate meets much less and consists of all SCR members and some JCR representatives.

Its main responsibility is to decide matters of major policy affecting the College. The College is represented by the Principal on Senate, as is the JCR through various student representative bodies. College affairs come under a Pro Vice Chancellor of Colleges, who oversees the general conduct of the Colleges, including the appointment of College Officers, the setting of budgets and so on; the JCR Executive represents Cartmel students on various Student Union bodies, including LUSU Council, Social Committees, Welfare Committees, Communications Committees & Sports Committees. The 2020 JCR executive is led by Sobia Saddiq, Sam Pusey and Mikkah Liddell; the college colours are burgundy and grey or officially,'Stone' and'Plonk.' The college emblem is the griffin.
