Information

About The University of Lincoln

Set on the site of one of the most important Roman cities in Britain, Lincoln or Lindum Colonia is comprised of a main campus and four additional locations. The university and Lincoln city centre are only a short walk apart, making it nearly impossible to escape the area's friendly student atmosphere.
 
  

Background and History

Priding itself on the traditional values of freedom of thought and speech, Lincoln's roots can be traced back as far as 1861, though it did not become a university until the late 20th century. In 1995, the Lincolnshire Foundation was born, a community-run charity that aimed to bring a university to the city of Lincoln. The foundation's diligent campaigning and voluntary work eventually paid off, raising over £30 million. Her Majesty The Queen opened the first university building on Brayford campus in 1996.

Location and Accessibility

Road: At 40 miles east of Nottingham and 40 miles south of the Humber Bridge, Lincoln is easily reached from most directions. Road access to Lincoln is along the A1 with intersections at Newark (A46) from the south and near Retford (A57) from the north. The university has pay parking open to all members of the public.

Rail: Lincoln Central station is just a two-hour trip from London Kings Cross. From Lincoln Central, the main Brayford Pool campus is a few minutes' walk away.

The university's disability service, DART, provides students with a range of specialist services, including guidance with study skills, screening and assistance, information on Disabled Students' Allowance and assessment with regards to particular courses and IT facilities, and advice on personal matters.
