Hello 2019 applicants,

Welcome to our thread where you'll be able to ask us any questions about life in Lincoln, as well as using it as a way of meeting other students who are also applying to the University.

In addition to this thread, you can also meet other people, network, and ask questions on our dedicated social media pages and groups, which you can find below:

https://www.facebook.com/uolapplicants2019/
https://twitter.com/UoLApplicants

As a 2019 applicant, you'll also be able to join our brand new Friends for Life scheme. By signing up to the scheme and selecting some of your interests, we will be able to introduce you to other applicants that you share things in common with before you join us. You can do this by clicking the following link: https://www.lincoln.ac.uk/friends/.

We also have a number of Open Days, which include our new Mini Open Days, coming up. These are an ideal opportunity to explore our campus and facilities, ask questions, meet staff and students, and get a sense of student life here at Lincoln. You can book yourself on to one here.

Applying to university is a really exciting time, but we know it can be a daunting experience, that's why we're here to try and make the process as simple and stress-free as it can be.

To get the ball rolling, let us know the following:

What course will you be applying for?
How are you feeling about starting uni?
Have you been to an open day? If so, what did you like the most?

Natasha

My son is planning to start sept 2019 doing physical education and sport course Lincoln is his first choice and he likes cygnet wharf accommodation.
I'm a 2nd year student at Lincoln, so I just thought I'd give you guys some advice on halls.

Courts: Avoid. People have compared it to a prison on the inside, and people can't wait to get out of there come the end of their first year. I guess a lot of people go for Courts because it is classed as the University's on site on accommodation, but you have to realise that literally every hall of residence is within close proximity of each other. It's incredibly rowdy and noisy, so keep that in mind if you actually plan on getting work done.

Cygnet Wharf: Lincoln's new on site accommodation. It's really nice and modern - the kitchen is huge and the rooms are okay in size, but you have to keep in mind that you will be living with 10-11 other students within your apartment. Most other halls of residence have people living with 4-6 other people within a flat.

The 'nicer' accommodation options would be The Gateway, Brayford Quay, Junxion, and St Marks. Definitely check those out before you make your choices! I would avoid Pavilions as it hosts around 1300 students, and is pretty much like Courts in terms of how noisy it is, and I would also avoid Danesgate House and Aqua House.

No one uses buses here to get to lectures - all of the buildings are within close proximity of each other and so are most of the halls of residences. You said you wanted to study History and so you'll mostly be in the Art, Architecture and Design building, which is about the same walking distance from my accom (The Gateway) as it is from Courts, if not closer.

If you planned to stay in any of the accommodation choices I listed in my first post, it would take you roughly 5-10 minutes to get to your lectures by walking. It's a small city so don't worry about bus tickets or anything like that!

Hello Amie,

As other posters have stated, all of the accommodation here in Lincoln is within walking distance of the University - most of them being a 5-10 minute walk so there is no need to worry about travelling in for your lectures as everything is accessible by foot (this also includes shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, cinemas etc).

You can check out how far each of the accommodation sites are away from each other and the University here: https://www.lincoln.ac.uk/home/stude...ion/map/?id=12. Whilst not all of them are classed as 'on campus' halls of residence they are generally all about the same distance away from those that are.

Choosing where to live and moving to university is a very exciting time, so if you have any questions, please do get in touch as we are always happy to help!

Natasha ☺️
