Open Days

Choosing what you want to study and where you want to study is an exciting and important step in realising your ambitions. At Lincoln, we offer a range of opportunities for you to discover more about us, the courses we offer, and why thousands of students fall in love with the University of Lincoln every year.

You can begin to discover Lincoln for yourself on our website and by attending one of our many online events, but the best way to find out what it is really like to live and learn here is to join us for one of our Open Days.

By joining us at an Open Day, you have the opportunity to attend subject talks for the courses you are interested in, meet face-to-face with academic tutors, and speak to our expert staff about the things that matter to you – whether that is the course, careers support, accommodation, the Students’ Union, or fees and funding.

You can take in our spectacular city centre campus, cutting-edge academic facilities, and purpose-built accommodation on a guided tour led by one of our brilliant ambassadors. The city you live in plays an important part in your university experience, which is why we encourage our Open Day guests to explore the city while they are with us in Lincoln. The high street is just a short walk away and the trip up Steep Hill into the historic Cathedral Quarter is well worth it.

If you’re applying for one of our courses for autumn 2021 entry, you can pre-register now to be among the first in line once we can welcome visitors back on campus tours. Visit our website to book your place.

Student Life in Lincoln

One of the world’s great historic cities, Lincoln is renowned for its fusion of old and new. The winning combination of a welcoming and vibrant city centre and a historic Cathedral Quarter, both offering a rich variety of attractions, activities, and amenities, makes Lincoln a fantastic place in which to live and study.

The University’s campus is based at the heart of it all. Located on the picturesque Brayford Pool waterfront, it provides a modern student-centred community with almost everything you’ll need either on campus or a short walk away.

Working together with the University’s Students’ Union – an independent organisation run by elected officers on behalf of students at Lincoln – the University aims to offer an array of events, activities, and amenities designed to help students settle in to university life, meet friends, and make the most of their time with us.

Students have the chance to enjoy a range of virtual and on-campus events and activities throughout the year, including live music, comedy, quizzes, and fayres. All activities, events, and facilities adhere to the current Government guidance and restrictions on opening and social mixing.

The Students’ Union (SU) operates several major on-campus venues which are popular hotspots for students during the day and at night. These include Towers, The Swan, and The Engine Shed, which is one of the region’s biggest live music venues and has welcomed acts such as Kaiser Chiefs, Rudimental, Romesh Ranganathan, and Katherine Ryan.

Taking part in sporting activities, joining a club, or becoming a member of a society can be a great way to make new friends and create bonds that can last a lifetime. The Students’ Union currently offers more than 150 different sports and societies, including Basketball, Rowing, Yoga, Anime, Gaming, and Harry Potter.

The University’s on-campus Sports Centre provides many of the facilities used by the sports clubs, including five-a-side football pitches, squash courts, basketball courts, hockey pitches, and trampolines. The Centre also offers a mix of fitness classes, a dance studio, and a well-equipped gym.

A short walk away from campus you will find a range of restaurants, cafes, and bars that overlook the marina area, while the city’s high street and side streets offer a mix of independent and boutique stores and national brands and chains. Quirky speakeasy bars, cosy pubs, and bustling live music venues add to the vibrant and varied nightlife.

Please note that all activities, events, sporting events, and facilities will adhere to Government guidance at the time. The University reserves the right to make changes to ensure compliance with any restrictions.

Travel information

Our city centre campus is in easy reach of public transport links to the rest of the UK. Lincoln Central railway station is a five minute walk away, and opposite that is a new bus station serving the rest of the city and many other parts of Lincolnshire.

The A46 road is dual carriageway from the outskirts of the city all the way to the A1, giving easy access to the south of the country, and London, as well as to Nottingham and Leicester. Sheffield, Grimsby and Hull are also within easy reach.

East Midlands Airport is around a 90 minute drive away.

Outstanding Facilities

We understand the importance of giving students the strongest possible foundation to help them achieve their aspirations. Whatever programme you choose, we aim to ensure that you have access to the latest equipment and resources to support your studies. Over the past two decades, the University has invested more than £375 million in its Brayford Pool Campus, with ongoing investment in additional facilities and refurbishments of existing buildings. Following the opening of our £28 million Isaac Newton Building and £19 million Sarah Swift Building, work is now nearing completion on a purpose-built medical school building to help train the next generation of doctors. The University has also been awarded Gold by EcoCampus for its work in driving more sustainable environmental management practices across the campus.

The University’s facilities have been designed for the subject-specific needs of our students. Our buildings blend modern and innovative learning spaces with social spaces for group work and collaboration. At the heart of student life at Lincoln is the University’s Great Central Warehouse Library which provides access to more than 260,000 journals and 750,000 print and electronic books, as well as databases and specialist collections.

Depending on the subject chosen, students can have access to scientific laboratories and workshops – such as the Vehicle Controls Lab, and the Electro-Magnetic Chamber – specialist robotics facilities, state-of-the-art clinical suites, a pharmacy dispensary, consultancy rooms, and a dedicated area for the study of animal behaviour.

Those undertaking arts subjects can make use of a range of bespoke spaces and resources, including well-equipped art, design, fashion, and dance studios; television and photography studios and editing suites; printmaking studios; a specialist facility for working with ceramics, glass, and precious metals; and a 450-seat professional theatre.

Choosing where to live is a big decision and it’s important to take the time to find out what’s available and what would best suit your needs and budget.
