Discover Lincoln

Our Historic City

One of the world’s great historic cities, Lincoln is renowned for its fusion of old and new. The winning combination of a 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.

Lincoln’s Roman and medieval heritage blends together seamlessly with modern city living and the University’s main campus is situated in the heart of it all on the spectacular Brayford Pool waterfront.

Guide to the City

The University of Lincoln’s striking city centre campus provides a modern student-centred community. Based on the picturesque Brayford Pool waterfront, almost everything you’ll need is either on campus or a short walk away. Watch our city guide video to see some of the highlights.

Situated in the East Midlands region of England, Lincoln’s central location allows for quick and easy access to London and a number of other major cities, including Nottingham, Sheffield, Leeds, Leicester, and Hull.
