Anne Lister College

Welcome to Anne Lister College!

We’re the first of the University of York’s colleges to be named after a woman, as well as someone who was part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Located on Campus East, we’ll be home to almost 800 residents when our college is fully completed. We hope our students follow in Anne Lister’s footsteps - by being broad in their knowledge and prolific in the pursuit of it, while being unashamedly themselves.

New student arrivals

We’re looking forward to you joining us here at Anne Lister College! Here’s how to prepare and what happens next.
