We have invested more than £150 million in our Brayford Pool Campus to provide students with industry-standard, state-of-the-art teaching spaces. Our facilities include the award-winning Great Central Warehouse Library which is open 24/7 during peak periods, a Human Performance Centre, brand new laboratories, gallery and studio space, and an Engineering Hub. Our new science centre,the Joseph Banks Building, opened September 2014 and houses state of the art teaching and research space for many of our science based programmes.
Our Holbeach centre houses the National Centre for Food Technology, equipped with modern food manufacturing and testing facilities, such as an information and communication technology (ICT) suite, product development kitchen, food manufacturing hall, teaching and seminar rooms, and food microbiology and food chemistry analytical labs.
Students love the fabulous location of our main Brayford Pool Campus. Situated next to the picturesque Brayford Pool marina in the heart of the thriving city centre, just a few minutes' walk from the High Street, there is a wealth of shops, restaurants and accommodation close to campus.The University of Lincoln was rated in the top 10% of UK universities for centralized, convenient facilities in the Times Higher Education's Student Experience Survey 2014. We are ranked third among English universities for the percentage of students coming into university on foot each day. More than three quarters (77%) of our students walk to lectures, according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency.
Lincoln is a safe, student-centred city and offers a fantastic range of accommodation options, on-campus and within a short walking distance of the University.
