Grizedale College is a college of the University of Lancaster in Lancashire, England. The college is named after the Grizedale Forest area of "Lancashire North of the Sands". When it was built it was situated at the southern extremity of the Bailrigg campus. The development of the south west campus has meant that college is now considered to be one of the more centrally located colleges.


The College houses a bar, junior and senior common rooms, and before the rebuilding of the college, a coffee shop, a laundrette and accommodation.

However, a major redevelopment project began in the summer of 2006 which will result in the demolition of all accommodation blocks to make way for more modern spacious accommodation. During the redevelopment students from Grizedale have been granted temporary accommodation in Pendle College and the "George Fox building". In November 2006 it was announced that Grizedale wouldn't see the completion of their new residence blocks in time for the 2007-8 academic year and that the college will remain fragmented until at least 2008-9.


The official college song, adopted as the result of a vote by the JCR membership, is "Never Forget" as performed by "Take That". The college has two mascots - "Depravo" the rat, the rights to which were granted to the college by Michael Palin and, since 2000, the "Grizedale Boar".

ocial Events

Grizedale has a reputation as being a sociable college, attracting students from other colleges in the evening for events in Grizedale Bar, such as the "Shite Disco". Traditionally the final song played at the "Shite Disco" is the official college song.
