Find Your New Home

The city of Lincoln is a great place to live and there are a variety of accommodation options to choose from. Before you travel to the UK, you will need to arrange where you will be staying when you arrive. You will also need to think carefully about your budget and how you will travel from your accommodation to the University.

To help support as many students as possible, we guarantee a room in University managed accommodation to all new students joining us in 2022 who apply for accommodation before 1 September. If you are a postgraduate taught student, you may also be eligible to receive an accommodation discount.

University Managed Accommodation

Based in the heart of Lincoln’s city centre, most of our student accommodation at the University of Lincoln is on our Brayford Pool Campus or just a short distance away.

With more than 4,300 rooms across seven residences, we offer a variety of University-managed accommodation options with prices starting from £92 per week. Our University managed accommodation includes internet access, personal possessions insurance, utility services, 24/7 campus security, and a reception team. All of our University managed accommodation options are self-catered.

Privately Rented Accommodation Options 

Alongside a fantastic range of University managed accommodation, there are a variety of privately rented accommodation options across the city of Lincoln. If you are considering privately rented accommodation, we encourage you to visit the Lincoln Students’ Union Housing Accreditation Scheme website.

The Housing Accreditation Scheme has been launched to help students access safe, quality housing from trusted landlords in Lincoln.
