Students have the support of their personal tutor during their studies, who can provide mentoring, advice, and inspiration to help students get the most out of their university experience. In order to address the needs of the student population, the university also provides a wide variety of counseling and consultation programs for both personal and academic matters.

The Student Support Centre, located at the heart of the Brayford Pool Campus, brings together several main services offering a single point of contact that can connect students with the appropriate team. Specialist teams at the University provide free, impartial and confidential guidance and information on a range of issues, ranging from tuition payments, accomodation support, visas and legal advice.

Student life

It is located in a compact and beautiful historic city in England’s East Midlands area. With all the excitement and comfort of living in the middle of a vibrant city, the University of Lincoln offers students a close-knit campus community.

At the heart of it all is the university’s campus. Located on the picturesque waterfront of Brayford Pool, it offers almost everything you’ll need, either on campus or a short walk away, to modern student-centred culture. You can find a number of restaurants, cafes, and bars overlooking the marina area a short walk from campus, while the high street and side streets of the city offer a mix of independent and speciality shops and national brands and chains. The lively and diverse nightlife is complemented by restaurants, cosy pubs and bustling live music venues.

There are plenty of groups and sports clubs in which students can participate. The On-Campus Sports Center of the University offers many of the facilities used by the sports clubs of the Students’ Union, including five-a-side football fields, squash courts, basketball courts, hockey pitches, and trampolines.

There are plenty of events and facilities for them to enjoy on campus and in the city while students are not studying. There are many large on-campus venues run by the University of Lincoln Students’ Union that are common hotspots for students during the day and at night. Such venues were named in the Best Bar None Awards in 2017 as some of the safest in the world.

Living Accommodation

New undergraduate students who confirm Lincoln as their first choice before the deadline are guaranteed accommodation by the university. Most student accommodation at the university is either on the Brayford Pool Campus or only a short distance away, right in the heart of Lincoln’s city center. The Student Village contains the on-campus housing of the University and consists of two waterfront complexes that are purpose-built: Lincoln Courts and Cygnet Wharf. A number of halls of residence and shared living options are also operated by the University for new and continuing students who chose to live off-campus. The Accommodation Services team can help
students find accommodation to meet their requirements and budgets.

Self-catered accomodation costs: £5415- £6350 per year

The busy high street of Lincoln is only a five-minute walk from the campus.
