The University of Lincoln offers a wide range of accommodation options, most of which is on, or a very short walk from, our city-centre campus. We are proud to be able to guarantee accommodation to new undergraduate students who make us their first choice.*

How to Apply for Accommodation

You can use our online accommodation application system from 1st March once you have accepted an offer from the University of Lincoln, either as a firm or insurance choice. We have prepared a walkthrough of the accommodation booking system, available at: http://accommodation.blogs.lincoln.ac.uk/how-to-apply.

Wherever you choose to live during your time here, you can contact our Residential Services for support and advice on +44 (0)1522 886231 or 886195 or email accommodation@lincoln.ac.uk

Receiving an accommodation offer

All offers for accommodation are sent by email to the address provided when applying. If you wish to change your preferred email address at any time, you can do so by logging into the accommodation booking system.

UCAS students

Rooms are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis with consideration given to first year students, mature students, overseas students and students with disabilities.

Applications are held while your university acceptance status is monitored with UCAS. Applicants who make Lincoln their first ('firm') choice with UCAS will be able to monitor the status of their application by logging on to the accommodation booking system.

Formal offers of accommodation are mailed to all applicants when A-Level results are released. Emails will detail which type and location of accommodation you are being offered. You will also receive a letter via post confirming your accommodation offer and a copy of the Residence Agreement, which should be read carefully.

If you are happy with the terms offered, you can log on to the accommodation booking system and complete the acceptance process. Specific rooms are assigned after the acceptance is received, and notice of this is emailed to applicants.

Applicants who make Lincoln their insurance choice with UCAS should still complete an online application, which will be held on record until confirmation is received that you will be attending the University, at which point an offer of accommodation will be made.

Students at franchise colleges/university transfer

Students at franchise colleges or who are transferring universities should contact the Accommodation Service as soon as they receive an offer. Once confirmation of an offer is received from either the University Admissions Office, your college or your course leader, you will receive the information and application forms to apply for accommodation. On receipt of your application card, the process is the same as for UCAS students.
