How to Apply

Applying for accommodation at Lincoln is simple. Once you have formally accepted your offer of a place at the University, you'll be able to make your accommodation application using our online system. Every effort will be made to ensure that you are allocated accommodation from your preferred options, depending on demand.

It is important that you are fully aware of all the information regarding accommodation payments, deadline dates for applying, the details of the contract you will sign, and the associated costs you will be responsible for when renting accommodation.

2023 Entry

Step 1: Apply from November

The online application system is now open for applicants who have accepted their course offer for 2023 entry as their first choice. To apply you need to have accepted your course offer at least 24 hours or one working day before you wish to submit an accommodation application. You will need your 8 digit University of Lincoln Applicant ID, which you will have received in your academic offer. It is also included in the email alert you will receive notifying you that applications for accommodation are open.

Step 2: Choose Your Accommodation

Login and select the ‘new application’ link in the top toolbar. You will then need to select the correct application type, course type, session, and pathway before you can browse the accommodation available. Choose your favourite four options, in preference order, by clicking the ‘apply’ button beside your chosen development and then select the room type you would prefer. This allows us to see what other options you are interested in should your first choice be fully allocated due to demand.

The next page enables you to enter 'further details' where you can inform us of any special requirements. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that we will be able to facilitate all requests. If you believe you have additional requirements due to a disability or medical condition that will affect your accommodation allocation, please email separately to your application.

Step 3: Review and Submit

Review and check your choices and preferences on the ‘application summary’ screen before clicking 'submit'. You will then be taken to another screen where you will need to accept our Terms and Conditions before you are able to submit your application. The next screen will then confirm that you have successfully submitted your application. 

Step 4: What Happens Next?

Offers for accommodation for students starting in the autumn will be communicated via email.
