Discover Lincoln

One of the world's great historic cities, Lincoln is a place where ancient architecture blends together seamlessly with modern living.

The University of Lincoln campus is found in the heart of the city on the Brayford waterfront. Across the marina, along the Brayford waterfront, continental style cafes are found overlooking the water.

The University of Lincoln is ranked as a top 50 UK institution in both The Guardian University Guide 2018 and The Complete University Guide 2017 and is also featured in the top 10 of the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2017 in the postgraduate and international categories.

The University is a short walk away from the city centre area of Lincoln is a blend of old and new, where Tudor beamed tea rooms nudge up against modern bistros. At the top of Lincoln's Steep Hill is the city's old quarter, home to the thousand year-old Cathedral and medieval castle. Independent businesses line its cobbled streets, including art galleries, delicatessens, vintage boutiques and antique book shops.

The fusion of old and new, ancient and contemporary, makes Lincoln an exciting place to live and study.

"You never need any transport to get anywhere - everything is within walking distance. It's cheap to live in Lincoln and it's safe, which is reassuring when you first arrive."
