Accommodation

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

The Student Village comprises the University’s on-campus accommodation and is made up of two purpose-built waterfront complexes: Lincoln Courts and Cygnet Wharf. The University also manages a range of halls of residence and shared housing options for new and continuing students who choose to live off-campus.

Location

Situated in the East Midlands region of England, Lincoln’s central location allows for easy access to a number of major cities including Nottingham, Sheffield, Leeds, Leicester, and Hull.

The University’s main campus is based in the heart of the city, meaning students do not need a car for transport.

The city’s famous Steep Hill – a beautiful cobbled street lined with boutique shops and tearooms - provides the gateway to the city’s historic Cathedral Quarter and Bailgate area where independent shops and cafes nestle between the walls of the medieval Lincoln Castle and the grandeur of Lincoln Cathedral. Both overlook the University of Lincoln.
