Make Lincoln Home
Lincoln is one of the most affordable student cities in the UK, and the cultural development of the area around the University of Lincoln has made the city an attractive choice for university students.
Student life in Lincoln
Lincoln is brimming with culture and creativity. That vibrant atmosphere has attracted more than17,000 students – almost nine percent of the city’s total metro population. Lincoln is an ideal city for students to study, experience culture, go out, and explore the region all during their time at university.
Lincoln has several public outdoor spaces that students can enjoy, including Brayford Waterfront, Witham Valley Country Park, and several gardens throughout the city. There are also the large West Common and South Commons, neither of which are far from the city centre. A short trip from the city also takes you to Hartsholme Country Park, for walking, cycling, and wildlife spotting.
All of Lincoln’s neighbourhoods have something unique to offer to students – it just depends on what you’re looking for! Whether you want to live on a quiet street or next door to university life, you’ll find the perfect area in the city to call home during your time as a student.
Beyond the City
The city of Lincoln has plenty of sights to keep you busy, but maybe you’d like to escape the city sometimes. North of Lincoln you can head into West Lindsey to see charming villages and market towns. If you head south of the city into the heart of Lincolnshire, you can take beautiful countryside walks and see the historic town of Sleaford. You can even head to the Lincolnshire coast to stay at a holiday resort in a seaside town.
The three major institutions in Lincoln are the University of Lincoln, Bishop Grosseteste University, and Lincoln College. The University of Lincoln is a TEF Gold-rated university with a College of Science, School of Pharmacy, College of Arts, and College of Social Science.
