University of York Students' Union (YUSU)

Langwith College Student Association

So, you’re in Langwith! Aren’t you lucky? From the moment you arrive on Heslington East you’ll feel at home in the college. Coming to University can be a massive step in your life, but your college will always be a place where you feel at home. Langwith is one of the University of York’s founding colleges, which was opened by the Queen herself (fancy, right?) in 1965, and has one of the strongest college communities on campus. Whether it’s chilled nights in the Cosy Corner in the common room, or a couple of cocktails in the Glasshouse (our very own bar!), there really is something for everyone in Langwith.

Langwith accommodation is made up of Premium shared bathroom and En Suite accommodation, so comfort and luxury is guaranteed! With spacious rooms and a comfy ¾ sized bed, you’ll be sure to feel at home. Our college is known for its variety of events and activities that are on offer to our students, and we have the pictures in our photo gallery on our website and Instagram accounts to prove it! Regular bar crawls in York and Sheffield, baking sessions with the college team, karaoke, bingo, Fifa tournaments, free food events, college sport and new for this year: our Winter Ball at the National Railway museum - there’s plenty going on! Check out all of our social media links below and our website for a preview!

Our Freshers’ Week

“The Langaroo has been reported missing and it’s your job to help us find him. Escaped from the outback and recently spotted in Langwith College, York, can you help us?”

So, you’re in Langwith! Aren’t you lucky? We’re kicking off the year with the biggest and best Freshers’ Week yet. With a full programme of club nights in all of York hottest and venues, and a parallel action-packed week of non-club night events to match, we’re starting as we mean to go on in Freshers’ Week in Langwith this Autumn. Not to be missed!

Get Involved

Each college has various opportunities for students to #GetInvolved and Langwith is no different!

  • Our Volunteering officers organise many one-off volunteering opportunities in collaboration with the Student’s Union (YUSU) and our college charity York Neighbours. If you have a spare weekend or afternoon, we have plenty of things coming up that you could get involved with!

  • Each college at the University of York has their own college charity. In Langwith, we work closely with York Neighbours, a local charity which works with elderly residents in the local area and organise day trips and evening out for those who may not have been able to get out and about on their own! So far this year we have raised over £1000 and we are well on our way to our target of £2000 by Christmas! We have held many events throughout the year, including our Annual Summer Fete, RAG Pub Golf and Karaoke and Bingo nights in the Glasshouse.

  • College Sport in Langwith is a major part of our community. With loads of Sports teams around, there really is something for anyone. Our sports teams not only achieve highly in University-wide tournaments, as well as coming out on top in many sports in York’s Varsity tournament with Durham, but also foster a great college spirit. You’re bound to find some of your best friends at University by being in college sports teams. Come down to the Langwith Freshers Fair on Tuesday of Freshers Week outside the Glasshouse to sign up for trials! If you have any questions about College Sport, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Jonathan Olufowobi, our Vice President for Activities on the LCSA who can tell you all you need to know. All contact details for the LCSA are on our website www.langwithcollege.com
