Make a Difference

Set on commanding heights between London and York, Lincoln – or Lindum Colonia – was one of the principal cities of Roman Britain.

Today, the city is the setting for a pioneering 21st Century civic university. The University of Lincoln would not have existed if it was not for the generous support and goodwill of the community and the donors and partners of the institution.

Lincoln is now an established university which provides higher education to more than 15,000 students each year and is home to world class researchers who are making profound contributions to their subject areas. From developing new medical technologies to preserving rare architectural treasures, the work of Lincoln’s academics and students makes a real difference to society.

I am proud to be making a difference to the future through the University of Lincoln and I hope you will be too.

Professor Mary Stuart

Vice Chancellor

Make a Difference to the World


‌The University of Lincoln is working to solve global problems. Our academics undertake research that addresses the pressing issues of today. Along with students, they are engaged in cutting-edge research in areas including: stem cell biology, heritage conservation, cancer treatment, political engagement, power generation, animal cognition and welfare, child language development and food security. It is vital that we support those who are learning, teaching and researching by ensuring they have the opportunities, facilities and resources to reach their full potential.

Your gift today could mean a world-changing discovery tomorrow.

Make a Difference to the UK

‌The University of Lincoln is a major contributor to the region’s economy, generating more than 3,000 jobs. Since it was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1996, £170 million has been invested in the spectacular Brayford Pool campus, transforming a city centre brownfield site into a hub of academic and business activity. We also plan to spend a further £130 million to improve the student experience further over the next few years. Much of this has only been made possible by donors who were determined to ensure Lincoln had its own world-class facility for teaching and research. Some of those donors are now immortalised through their association with us in the names of our buildings, student prizes, supporting research groups and professorships.

Make a Difference to the Next Generation


At the University of Lincoln, our students come first. We believe that personal circumstances should not stop people from having aspirations or achieving them. Named scholarships, prizes and bursaries all help to ensure that financial hardship need not deter talented individuals from achieving their full potential.

Your gift today could provide the opportunity for a student to make a difference tomorrow.

Make a Difference to the Future

Gifts from our alumni, friends and supporters allow us to continue to deliver high-quality education and opportunities for students of all ages and backgrounds. Your donation will help us support students, create and maintain world-class facilities and achieve excellence in research. A gift to the University’s General Fund, large or small, will support any of these causes according to the area of greatest need at any one time.

Should you wish to support a more specific area of interest, we offer a tailored programme of giving, suited to donors who may wish to leave a lasting legacy in the form of a named building or scholarship, for example.

The University Development Office would be delighted to welcome you to the University to discuss your aspirations and goals.

Everybody deserves the chance to reach their full potential. There’s no greater responsibility on us as a society than affording the next generation the same opportunities we enjoyed. That is what universities like Lincoln are in the business of doing - providing a platform for the brightest minds to apply their talents.
