Bailrigg is the campus of Lancaster University, in the City of Lancaster, Lancashire, England, 4 km (2.5 mi) south of the centre of Lancaster. The student radio station Bailrigg FM is named after the site.
Bailrigg is a 200-acre (80-hectare) site donated by Lancaster City Council in 1963. The purpose-built campus buildings are located on a hilltop, the lower slopes of which are landscaped parkland which includes the "Carter Lake" duckpond and the university playing fields. The site is three miles (5 km) south of the city centre. The campus buildings are arranged around a central walkway known as "The Spine". The walkway runs from north to south and is covered for most of its length.
The main architect was Gabriel Epstein of Shepheard and Epstein. On a barren hilltop on a windswept day in 1963 the two architectural partners surveyed the future site of the university, Peter Shepheard recalled that day:
On 2 January 2017, it was announced that Bailrigg was to become one of 14 new garden villages in England.
