Get Ready for Lincoln

We can’t wait to welcome our students this October and, to ensure they get the amazing experience Lincoln has become known for, we’re working with the Students’ Union to prepare a programme of truly spectacular events and activities. We'll be able to provide more information as we're able to confirm the details over the coming weeks.

The exciting schedule of events will continue throughout the first term giving you the opportunity to become part of our fantastic Lincoln community. In addition to a range of in person and online activities, students will be able to benefit from the University's great outdoor spaces. They will be able to access the University’s beautiful parkland campus at Riseholme for wildlife and woodland walks, bike rides, and enjoy the spectacular views. Of course, student safety is our top priority so we’ll be adhering to social distancing guidelines and will adapt accordingly as regulations change.

Students' Union Activites

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.

This includes online evening events for students who might be looking to meet new people, guided tours of the campus and the city of Lincoln, and virtual sports and societies taster sessions throughout the first few weeks, which will give students a chance to meet new people and find a new hobby.

You can also look forward to exploring a Virtual Freshers Fayre and discovering local shops and companies, and exclusive student freebies, discounts, and offers.

Accommodation Activities

In our university-managed accommodation, our Residential Wardens will be working hard to develop a sense of community and supporting an engaging university experience through a range of exciting social activites.

These activities are designed to connect students within their apartments and buildings, and establish a sense of belonging, community, and support. These may include a range of 'Warden Challenges' such as photo competitions and social media-based activities, as well as online quizzes and games.

We also aim provide students from across our accommodation with opportunities to interact with others outside of their immediate blocks and form connections and support networks across our one community.

One Community, Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion

At the University of Lincoln we are One Community, with staff and students working together to create an environment in which people flourish based on their abilities, not their backgrounds.
