Open Day Offers and Discounts

Car Parking Discount

The University of Lincoln has partnered with the City of Lincoln Council to help support students and their families in travelling by car to one of our Open Days.

Guests can take advantage of our free parking on-campus, however, parking spaces on campus are limited and spaces do fill up quickly as these events are very popular. To support our guests in finding suitable parking, we are able to offer a discounted parking tariff valued at £6.40 and valid for 24 hours from the time of purchase. 

There are plenty of pay-and-display car parks nearby including discounted parking at Lucy Tower Street (LN1 1XL) and Tentercroft Street (LN5 7DB).

To obtain this discount, you can enter the PayByPhone code: 801323. To register for PayByPhone, guests can download the app within their smartphones or visit for more detail. 

Please note, this discounted parking tariff is only valid and redeemable as part of a University of Lincoln Undergraduate Open Day, which are standalone events and separate to our Open Campus events, Informal Visit Days, Postgraduate Open Days, or any other event.

During your visit, why not stop for a bite to eat at our University of Lincoln catering outlets and enjoy a 10 per cent discount, or head to our Students' Union venue Towers, where you can benefit from a 20 per cent discount on food.
