Accommodation at Lincoln

Your New Home from Home

At Lincoln, we understand that your university accommodation is so much more than just a place to live, and one of the many reasons our students love Lincoln is because they feel so at home with us.

All of our accommodation is either on campus or a short distance away, which means that almost everything you could need is right on your doorstep. So whether you are attending lectures and seminars, wanting to use our on-campus learning spaces and the library, or are heading into the city centre to grab a bite to eat and socialise with friends, it’s all just a few minutes’ walk from your new home.

There are a variety of options to suit different needs and budgets whether you're joining us as an undergraduate or postgraduate student, and our Accommodation Services Team is on hand throughout the year to help new and returning students find a great place to live.
