“I didn’t do as well as I’d hoped. I got nervous and flunked my exams a bit. It had been a stressful day and the University of Lincoln were so lovely. They had been dealing with a lot of people like me, they understood and helped with everything."

One of the world’s great historic cities, Lincoln is renowned for its fusion of old and new. The winning combination of a welcoming and vibrant city centre and a historic Cathedral Quarter, both offering a rich variety of attractions, activities, and amenities, makes Lincoln a fantastic place in which to live and study.
The University’s campus is based at the heart of it all. Located on the picturesque Brayford Pool waterfront, it provides a modern student-centred community with almost everything you’ll need either on campus or a short walk away.
We’re welcoming you to student life at Lincoln with a huge week of events, fayres, and opportunities to meet new people.
We know that as well as learning, university life is about meeting new people, making friends, and having fun. We are working with our Students’ Union to ensure the Lincoln experience remains fun, fulfilling, and safe when students come back to campus, including a mix of physical and virtual events.
Highlights this year include Chase & Status, Raye, and the Drag Ball Extravaganza!
