Applying for accommodation at Lincoln is a simple process. Once you have confirmed your course with UCAS (or with the University of Lincoln if you are an international student), take a look at all of the options available, decide which ones are most suited to you and your budget, and then make your accommodation application online.
From 1 March the application system is open to any applicant who has accepted their course offer via UCAS, as either their first choice or insurance choice. To apply you need to have accepted your offer at least 24 hours or one working day before you wish to submit an application. You will need your 11 digit University of Lincoln applicant ID, which is provided by the Admissions team. You will have received this in your academic offer and it will also be included in an email which will be sent to you when you are able to apply for your accommodation.
Once you have your applicant ID and are ready to begin making your accommodation application, it’s time to register on our system. To do this click here and select ‘register’. You will need to enter personal details such as your first name, surname and date of birth which must match those held for you by UCAS for your registration to be successful. Once registered, you will receive a validation code via email which will enable you to log in to the application system.
If you believe you have any additional requirements due to a disability or medical condition that will affect your accommodation allocation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org separately to your accommodation application.
On the ‘application summary’ screen you will be able to review all the choices and preferences you have entered on your application. Check everything is in order before clicking ‘submit’.
You will then be taken to a screen titled ‘submit application’, which confirms your application is completed, but not yet submitted. The final step is to accept the terms and conditions and click ‘yes’ at the bottom of the screen to submit your application. You will then see a screen confirming that your application has been submitted.
You accommodation application will remain in the status ‘awaiting verification’ until your place at the University is validated by the University Admissions Team. This usually happens around A-Level results day. For September intake allocations of accommodation will start to go out via email from ‘A Level’ results day.
