About

Discover the University of Lincoln

The University of Lincoln has enjoyed a meteoric rise up the university league tables for good reason: we put students at the heart of everything we do. Added to that, we are a research-based university with quality teaching and excellent career prospects for our graduates.

Academics and students at the University carry out major research for the benefit of society across areas as varied as mobility technology, medical imaging for cancer diagnosis, prevention of community re-offending, anti-terrorist surveillance, food security and water conservation, treatment of insomnia and children’s language development.

A business ethos pervades the entire range of our programmes, from science and technology courses to arts and humanities, with emphasis placed on ensuring that what our students learn is up-to-date, research-informed and relevant to employers. Many of our academic and research programmes are created directly with partners in industry to give employers a competitive edge, thanks to world-leading expertise and work-ready graduates.

Opened by Her Majesty The Queen, the University’s main campus in Lincoln was the first new city centre campus to be built in the UK for decades. More than £140 million has been invested in the stunning Brayford Pool campus that has transformed a city centre brownfield site, revitalised the area and attracted investment from the retail, leisure and property sectors.

Economists estimate that the University has created at least 3,000 new jobs within Lincoln and that it generates more than £250 million every year for the local economy - doubling previous local economic growth rates.

This forward-looking, international University is at the heart of a truly thriving, cosmopolitan and friendly city.

Research & Innovation, Making a Difference

Research is at the heart of the University of Lincoln and our staff and students are an integral part of our research community. Research shapes and inspires our academic structure, it forms the content of our teaching and learning, it underpins our partnerships and relations around the world.

Our students, more than ever, should be prepared to develop the critical thinking skills integral to underpinning a research discipline. The University of Lincoln prepares them for this by engaging them in our research agenda, Student as Producer.

Research is not only crucial in underpinning the teaching and enterprise agendas of the University, it is vital to the economic success and social fabric of society.

Student Life

Historic and picturesque, Lincoln is one of the world's great small cities, renowned for its striking fusion of old and new.

Lincoln Cathedral, which dominates the city at the top of Steep Hill, is celebrated as one of the finest medieval landmarks in Europe. Together with Lincoln Castle and the cobbled Bailgate, it is a reminder of the citys long and fascinating history.

The University of Lincoln is situated in the heart of the city, overlooking the café culture of the Brayford waterfront. The modern marina is filled with popular bars and restaurants and a cinema, while the city centre and uphill areas offer a more diverse and cultural scene.

Lincoln is one of the safest and friendliest cities in the UK with its main attractions within a short walk of the city centre. The combination of a vibrant atmosphere and warm community feel makes Lincoln a fantastic place to live and study.

Sports & Societies

As well as a place to study, University is also a place to live and socialise. We aim to make it as easy as possible for students to make new friends and play an active social role in University life and its social networks.

From the Debating Society to American Football, the aim of Sports and Societies is to bring together students with common interests and facilitate them in pursuing and a hobby or activity they are interested with.

With currently over 2000 students involved with Sports or Societies there is usually something for everyone to get involved in.

Your Accommodation

You can choose from a fantastic range of accommodation in Lincoln. Most accommodation is situated around the attractive waterside of the Brayford Pool Marina. There are also options in town and in the Cathedral Quarter. Because the main University campus is in the city centre, all accommodation whether on campus or off campus, is within short walking distance.

The Universitys Accommodation Services has a number of landlords who have developed residential Partnership Halls for students.

These sites have been developed in association with the Accommodation Service in respect of their location, statutory health and safety issues, facilities and provision of service to students.

This means that students can find a safe, well-managed place to live within a five-minute walk of the main campus. The University is also part of the City of Lincoln Student Accreditation Scheme which provides a set of standards for landlords to provide safe, secure, well-managed housing.
