Where Do Our Students Live?

Choosing where to live while studying is a big decision. At the University of Lincoln, students can choose from a wide range of accommodation, most of which is on, or a short walk from, our city-centre campus. For those who make Lincoln their first choice, accommodation is guaranteed if you apply for it by 30 June.

I really like my accommodation. The city centre is close for nights out but the area is also quiet, which makes it good for studying too. The rooms have got everything you need.
