Lancaster University gives an outstanding performance in all areas that matter to students. This has been continuously recognised by national and international university rankings and surveys, and Lancaster's performance for 2020 rankings has been no different. Lancaster was named as International University of the Year 2020 by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide as well as achieving a top ten position in three major national league tables:

The university has outshone many of the Russell Group institutions in these major UK rankings. It has also impressively ranked 128th in the QS World University Rankings 2020, and 139th in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020.
Furthermore, Lancaster has been named as having the Best University Halls in the National Student Housing Awards, eight times since 2010.
