Congratulations! You will soon be studying at the University of Lincoln. We know that there is a lot to think about in your first week at university - enrolment, accommodation, welcome talks, meeting your new housemates and course mates and getting to know the city – not to mention the wide range of events offered by the University and Students' Union.
If you need any advice or information, our dedicated Student Support Team are here to help you.

“It was really easy to make friends with my housemates; they were all so welcoming. We often get together for meals, which is a great way to catch up. My accommodation is incredibly close to the Sports Centre so it is only a short journey whenever I want to relax and play basketball.”
He Wei, Mechanical Engineering
“If I were to give advice to help a new student settle in I’d tell them to get involved with as much as possible inside and out of university. This may include getting part-time work, volunteering or being involved with sports and societies. The more you get involved with, the more Lincoln will feel like your second home.”
Rebecca Hepworth, Events Management
“Having a peer mentor really helped ease any anxieties I had regarding starting university and he gave us a useful tour around Lincoln city centre. There were lots of activities during Welcome Week and I would definitely recommend joining some clubs or societies – I didn’t join any and I now realise that I missed out on great opportunities to meet new people and find new interests.”
Nkandu Muma, Psychology
“My first day at Lincoln was one of the most nerve-wracking but exciting experiences of my life. From the moment that I stepped into my apartment I was greeted by friendly smiles and welcomed by my new flatmates. Even though everyone was studying on different courses, we still had loads to talk about and it is nice having friends outside of your course. We all agreed from the start that we would pitch in and share a meal once a week – and we still do every Friday!”
Jamie Healey, Accounting
“I found social media was a really great way to get in touch and make friends with other students even before I started at university. Social media is also a brilliant platform to ask any questions that you have prior to starting – ask as many questions as you like, even if you think it is a silly question because there is always someone who knows the answer.”
