About University of Lincoln

One of the world's great historic cities, Lincoln is a place where ancient architecture blends together seamlessly with modern living. The University of Lincoln campus is found in the heart of the city on the Brayford waterfront. Just minutes' walk away, the city centre area of Lincoln is a blend of old and new, where Tudor beamed tea rooms line up against modern bistros.  At the top of Lincoln's Steep Hill is the city's old quarter, home to the thousand year-old Cathedral and medieval castle. Independent businesses line its cobbled streets, including art galleries, delicatessens, vintage boutiques and antique book shops.  

The fusion of old and new makes Lincoln an exciting place to live and study. More than £150 million has now been invested in the campus, transforming a brownfield site into an award-winning, state-of-the-art learning environment for the thousands of students who pass through its doors every year.

The Times Good University Guide described it as "the most dramatic transformation of a university in recent times."

In 2012 the university moved from a faculty based academic structure to a college based structure.
