About Escape Campus

Escape Campus was set up in 2016 with a view to providing a range of well managed off-campus accommodation, that met all the standards Lancaster University Homes (LU Homes) were looking to promote, with the added aim of improving student’s off-campus experience.

We only work with properties that meet those standards, and are committed to maintain them with all new properties that we take on. Whatsmore, we tailor the management of our business to offer a high level of professionalism to tenants and landlords alike. By doing these things we were able to become the first (and still only) letting agent to be approved and recommended by Lancaster University Homes.
