Freedom of Information


The Freedom of Information Act provides access to a wide range of information held by public bodies. It gives members of the public the right to request access to information, and places obligations on the University to respond to requests for information and maintain a Publication Scheme.

Publication Scheme

The University of Cumbria's Publication Scheme lists information routinely available on our website or can be requested.

Requesting Information

You can also request information which is not already listed in the Publication Scheme.

Under the Freedom of Information Act you have the right to be told whether the University has the information and to receive a copy of the information (subject to cost limitations and exemptions).

Requests for information can be sent to:


Information Governance Team, 
Vice Chancellor’s Office, 
University of Cumbria, 
Bowerham Road,  
Lancaster LA1 3JD.

Further Information

Further information about making a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act can be found on the Information Commissioner's website.
