Friends for Life 2 Col

Make Friends for Life

You can start making new friends before you even arrive at Lincoln by registering with our Friends for Life initiative. The scheme uses social media to connect you with like-minded students waiting to join us by matching interests.

Get Started


As many of us spend our days at home in the fight against Coronavirus, it's becoming clearer each day just how important the arts are in our every day lives. They are providing inspiration, keeping us entertained, and invoking thought. They are helping to keep us sane, and get us through this difficult time. 

You can show your support for the arts, by getting involved in our #WhyArtsMatter Campaign. 

Launched by the University with support from Alan Bishop, Chief Executive at Creative Industries Federation, the campaign aims to create a groundswell of support for the arts that will inform and inspire decision makers to get behind bringing the arts into prominence as a core part of the school curriculum.

Take part by shooting a short video clip describing #WhyArtsMatter to share on social media.
