Your Student Experience
At the University of Lincoln, we aim to help you to achieve your full potential by providing an experience that is academically rigorous, creative, and engaging. We are proud of our reputation for providing a high-quality student experience underpinned by inspirational teaching.
University life is also about so much more than just studying. That’s why everything we do is geared towards giving you the best student experience possible, from our excellent support services offering help with academic and personal matters, to our vibrant Students' Union which provides a wealth of exciting opportunities to make friends and get involved.
Campus and Facilities
Set against the backdrop of a beautiful and historic city, the University of Lincoln sits at the heart of it all on the picturesque Brayford Pool waterfront, with almost everything you’ll need either on campus or just a short walk away.
We’ve invested more than £375 million in our Brayford Pool Campus over the last two decades to create the best possible learning environment and a strong foundation to help you achieve your goals. No matter which course you choose, we aim to provide you with high-quality facilities and the latest equipment.
The Lincoln Experience
You can gain so much more than a degree during your time at Lincoln – you can broaden your horizons, develop independence, and make lifelong friends and memories. Our Students’ Union puts you at the heart of student life at Lincoln. An independent organisation run on behalf of all University of Lincoln students, it offers representation, support, and a range of exciting activities and events to help make your time here a truly unforgettable experience.
The University also has a growing number of agreements with universities and partner institutions in Europe and around the world offering study abroad programmes. An international experience can boost your academic and personal development and help you gain a whole range of new skills, from problem solving to learning a new language.
Socialising and Events
Life on campus is not all about studying. Here at Lincoln, there are plenty of activities and amenities for you to enjoy when you are taking a break from the books.
The Students’ Union runs events throughout the year and operates several major on-campus venues which are popular hotspots for students during the day and at night. These include Towers, The Swan, and The Engine Shed, which is one of the region’s largest live music and entertainment venues and has welcomed acts such as Kasabian, Paul Weller, Russell Howard, Joe Lycett, and Katherine Ryan.
When you are feeling peckish or want to grab a bite to eat with friends, you can visit one of the many different food and drink outlets on campus, offering everything from sandwiches and quick snacks to salads and hot meals.

Whether you're studying a sport-related discipline or looking for ways to enjoy your leisure time, a great way to meet fellow students and make lasting friendships is to join one of the many societies and sports clubs offered by the Students’ Union. Many of our sports teams take part in local and national competitions including British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) fixtures.
At the University of Lincoln, we take great pride in placing our students at the heart of everything we do. We understand that leaving home, starting university, and embarking on your future career is a big step, but at Lincoln, it’s not one you have to take alone.
We offer a whole host of support services to span the entire student journey so that you can access the help you need, when you need it. From expert advice in money matters and mental health, to guidance in academic writing and preparing for your first graduate job interview, we’re here to help.
