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.
When students are not studying, there are plenty of activities and amenities for them to enjoy on campus and in the city. The University of Lincoln Students’ Union operates several major on-campus venues which are popular hotspots for students during the day and at night. These venues were named as some of the safest in the country in the Best Bar None Awards in 2017.
The Students’ Union’s Tower Bar and The Swan provide relaxed daytime and evening hangouts, while The Engine Shed is one of the region’s biggest live music venues. It has hosted acts such as Kaiser Chiefs, Example, Kings of Leon, Kasabian, and Rudimental, as well as comedians Sarah Millican, Romesh Ranganathan, and Katherine Ryan.
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.
There are plenty of societies and sports clubs that students can get involved in. The University’s on-campus Sports Centre provides many of the facilities used by the Students’ Union 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 and a well-equipped gym. Students can pay for each session individually or via a monthly membership fee.
