Find Your Home from Home

Choosing where to live while studying is a big decision and it’s important to take the time to find out what’s available and what would best suit your needs. The University offers a variety of options to suit your needs and budget, from on-campus accommodation in our Student Village to University-managed developments and third party provider halls of residences just off-campus. Whatever you are looking for, our Accommodation Services team is on hand to help you find a great place to live.

Accommodation Options

Based in the heart of Lincoln’s city centre, most student accommodation at the University is either on our Brayford Pool Campus or just a short distance away. Students are able to choose from a range of places to live. All University accommodation is supported by our Residential Warden team.

Lincoln is a really good place to study and it is safe and peaceful. You can make a lot of friends from other countries and the people here are friendly.

I like the fact that Lincoln is small. You don’t have to use a car, you can just walk around everywhere. Everything is within reach.

The location is perfect; being on campus is ideal for getting to lectures. Settling in and making new friends could not have been easier due to the spacious communal areas.

Cygnet Wharf’s facilities and location are amazing. As it is situated on campus it’s only five minutes away from any part of the University. There are 10 of us in our apartment and it is easy to make new friends. It’s a really sociable environment as there always seems to be someone in the common area.
