Accommodation at Lincoln

A Home from Home

Choosing where to live while studying is a big decision, so it is important to take the time to find out what is available and best fits your needs. The University of Lincoln’s Brayford Pool Campus is based in the heart of the city and most accommodation is located either on campus or a short walking distance away. Students rate Lincoln in the top 20 per cent of UK universities for a good social life, according to the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2017, and Lincoln was also named as one of Britain’s 20 Best Cities in 2017 by The Telegraph.

I like the size of the city. It’s neither too big, nor too small. You can walk or bike everywhere, and there is still a lot to do. The cathedral is a highlight.

It was really easy to make friends with my housemates; they were all so welcoming. We often get together for meals which is a great way to catch up.
