Our Accommodation

We know that moving away from home for the first time is a big step. That’s why we will do our best to offer you a room in University-managed accommodation. Supply is now very limited and so we may need to signpost you to private sector purpose-built student accommodation nearby, of which there is currently a good supply. Thanks to our fantastic location in the heart of Lincoln, no matter which accommodation you choose at the University, you will never be far from the action.
