Privately Rented Accommodation

Alongside a fantastic range of University managed accommodation there are a variety of privately rented accommodation options across the city.

If you are considering living in privately rented accommodation away from campus, you will need to think carefully about how you will travel to the university on a regular basis. This is important because your timetable may include classes that you must attend on campus up to five days each week.

Our Privately Rented Accommodation page contains a range of information regarding accommodation availability and some of the important things you will need to consider before making a decision. 

Accommodation for Families

The city of Lincoln and the surrounding area is a popular place to live, work, and study. Finding family accommodation which is available to rent can be difficult as availability is limited.

Please note that the University is unable to provide accommodation for families, and students planning to bring dependants to Lincoln must arrange suitable accommodation with a private provider before travelling to the UK.

If you are considering bringing your family with you to the UK during your studies, we strongly encourage you to visit our Privately Rented Accommodation page for further information on some of the important things that you will need to consider.
