University of Lincoln is better than what I expected. The campus is modern, cute and easy to go from one building to the other (just takes a few mins).
Gorgeous campus, every lecturer I’ve had has been very passionate and knowledgeable, and all of the staff are happy to help
Great town and amazing courses. Totally love it here especially seeing as I am the only one from my home town. Hoping to stay here long time!
Mostly clean, good service and nice staff.
Great university, really friendly community and great lectures
Great campus. Helpful staff, do plan things in advance, they often make you wait. The wifi is not great, not because of the speed but there are always some IT issues when connecting to it.
Lincoln is pretty decent tbf. A shame the SU is ran by a bunch of wettys
Great support from course and career service
Amazing uni campus, main reason I came to this campus was for its general natural feel, is in a convenient location; and has many excellent facilities. Also the teaching/lecturing is mostly done in a great fashion
Nice university, not that much existing things too do however
Uni isn’t too bad nice campus plenty of courses would like to see more activities and events
Really nice areas to study and relax.
I can recommend this University.
Lovely areas to study and to get something to eat
Great university with plenty of study areas around the campus
Due to Covid there was not much we could do, however whenever there was a lab work or anything that wasn’t a lecture it was very nicely organised.
large variety of societies to choose from, great lecturers who are always willing to help and good atmosphere
I love studying at Lincoln. They have a really good range of equipment for my course and the lecturers are lovely
Decent Uni, amazing professors. Nothing to complain about.
Friendly environment, good staff and great work space
Lots of events for students to go to and make friends
It’s a great uni to study at! You meet so many amazing people that will be your friends for life!
Amazing staff, super friendly people. Would recommend Lincoln to anyone.
Lincoln has been a great experience. The people here are friendly and the staff all throughout the university are so helpful and committed to making sure you get the most out of your time here.
Everything is walking distance and the campus is always clean
I love it here, everywhere is walking distance. Great uni
Good, quiet and clean facilities but a lack of diversity
Enjoyable and fun courses, the student union is really nice, they do many events to support us which is great.
Very good university, really glad I applied for UOL. If you love the RAF, then this is the university! You have the Reds fly over as well as display regularly; we get typhoons from Coningsby and the F15s from Lakenheath pretty regularly too; we also get Waddington's traffic too such as their Beechcraft Shadow, RC135 Rivet Joint as well as other aircraft that visit like the P8 Poseidons based at Lossiemouth. A must apply for if you love aviation. The university itself is really good, they make sure you are getting on with your studies and the student wellbeing team are incredibly helpful which can be rare at other universities in the UK. I highly recommend studying here!
Easy access and very modern buildings
Good uni looking forward to graduating feel like I’ve gained so much in my 3 years here
Pretty good university in itself but I definitely wouldn't live in any of the university run accommodations.
Very central to Lincoln and everything easily accessible
The university has a good campus that provides a variety of activities across campus. The city has a lively night life with many nightclubs, bars and restaurants.
The University is really good, the teaching is really well given whilst all the support needed is provided both academically and non Academically.
Great uni. Brayford is very pretty
It is overall a very good uni and the uni provides a lot of support
University of Lincoln was much better than I expected, the course here is quite humanly designed lol, teachers and campus is just wonderful.
Great course with good help available
Accesible for all students, diverse and great learning spaces
Great campus. Library is always helpful. Sport course has been brill despite Civid challenges.
Average facilities and student Union. Great careers support.
Brilliant university, very social place with great unions.
Overall it was very good and the tables and chairs for discussion sessions worked very well
Uni is nice and most of the staff are amazing. Facilities (particularly the library) could be better
I love the student union bars and quack that happens ever week
University of Lincoln is a lovely university in a great location. It feels like a home away from home.
A great uni, I don't think I would have had a better experience anywhere else
The university is in a great location
Very good for campus and the uni is really nice
Lecturers can be interesting and draw the class in but some can rush through presentations without giving chance to fully understand what I’m looking at
a lively, up-to-date scenic university, great support for learning
Good uni fun place to study politics and IR Is a very good course
Good university experience, lots of fun activities.
My tutors are very supportive and understanding of mental health issues.
Great campus right in the middle of the city!
Due to Covid, I was not on campus at all last year and have only been back the last two weeks, so far the campus and facilities seem good, spacious and seem to have lots of useful areas. There are lots of options for clubs and societies, for majority of hobbies, sports and much more. Overall is a decent university.
University it’s okay, could be better
It's good but not well for all the international students.
The uni is good but due to its popularity is becoming overstretched they need to invest in more for their current student body rather than investing in more and more accommodation.
could find better ways to handle covid
What motivated me to write this review was Caitlin who is very friendly, helpful and always has a smile on her face.
it’s apparent that not a lot of face-to-face teaching has been taking place for quite some time
Experience really depends on the lecturers and people that you spend time with. Some lecturers are incredible and seminar tutors put in lots of extra effort to help students. Others offer no help. Facilities are very good.
Unfortunately due to how 2020 turned out, my first year at uni was very much unprecedented. But even so, the university provides all the services I needed, was forgiving of the issues that arise because of 2020 and generally made me feel covid safe through the methods they employed.
Amazing university, amazing staff
All good facilities, good central SU and close walk to city
Great uni Great place to be Love it
I’m so glad I chose to study at the university of Lincoln, it’s a great uni with amazing facilities!
Good tutors on average and excellent mental health support.
Good uni, can't comment on clubs or SU because of covid, geography is a great course.
Due to Covid-19, i haven’t been able to go into university as much as i would have liked, however from what i’ve seen it’s an amazing campus, plenty of places to study, quiet or not and the staff are always happy to help.
It’s the perfect university experience for those who don’t want to venture into a big city. Modern campus with the beauty and depth of a historic city. No need to catch a bus to get to your seminars or lectures as everything you need is in walking distance.
So far it's been great... Very difficult to review the facilities as all learning has been online this year...
WiFi is good I guess. I wish that there was more options for people with lower abilities for sports, or if they just want to do it for fun.
Lincoln uni is great and the town is a very lively and active place. All the uni staff are lovely and genuinely will help you no matter what.
Loved working here on my course this year despite the pandemic everything has seemed to work out. Looking forward to studying here next year!
I am really happy to be part of such a good University which gives me the opportunity to grow as an individual and gain knowledge in a great environment!
Great University with plenty to do!
Lovely campus and facilities, often takes a while to get replies from staff.
Great campus with lots going on and brilliant facilities
Uni of Lincoln is a brilliant university to study at, and it also offers a diverse range of courses you can study! All the staff I have come across are really helpful and really easy to talk too! During this pandemic, I have struggled academically, but my lecturers made it so much easier for me!
Lack of passionate staff but ok on the whole.
Welcoming atmosphere and great staff.
It's a welcoming university and a warm environment to be in
Overall brilliant experience. Lecturers go above and beyond to ensure you understand how to go about assignments, reading, tasks set. Especially with everything going on they couldn’t be do anything more.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the University of Lincoln
Been here 2 years, very good all-round
Not really sure cos I’ve hardly been there
Good place to be however the online courses are not the best way to learn
it would be better if we could actually go to uni and not sit in my room and watch through my laptop.
Haven’t experienced much due to lockdowns.
They have made going virtual easy! Also a very modern campus in a great city.
Lovely campus and some really great facilities
I haven’t been at the university a lot.
Please that all the facilities and that the university can offer a student.
Great place surrounded by lots of shops, the lecturers are so helpful and friendly!
Absolutely love living at Gravity, IconInc! The facilities are amazing and everyone who works here is so lovely! Especially during this pandemic it really feels like a home away from home! Would recommend it to students looking for accommodation especially because the location is so close to the High Street and university!
Buildings are Morden and nice, tho didn’t get to see much in first year due to covid 19
Good campus and love the library
Eduroam is awful but the staff in SSPS are always lovely
I love UoL, my professors are really useful. I enjoy the city as well ngl. But only concern is having an Ethernet port in my room lol. Beside that I would recommend UoL to anyone.
I hate university at the moment, I have even felt suicidal, due to having to live in the way we're living at the moment. Absolutely nothing beats having human contact with others and learning together IN PERSON. I hate waking up to my laptop everyday watching lectures online. It has been incredibly draining mentally and no one cares these days. There's not even societies I can go to properly in person to take my mind off things, I hate life at the moment and it feels as though life will never get better again. Not that anyone will ever care though.
Doing graphic design at the uni was fantastic, the tutors are absolutely incredible especially Barrie and Jo who I had in my 3rd year, the studio space feels like a little family and the facilities you can uses are incredible!
Campus is great, all close together with shops nearby. Library is nice.
Great uni, campus and library are great and really close to the town centre
University of Lincoln is so easy to navigate and the facilities are outstanding!
Supportive staff, great facilities, made the best out of blended learning due to coronavirus.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Lincoln and I have got to know some really good friends.
Nice and modern university in a quiet, historical city
Really great place to study, students union not open so can't review that, but professors are really good
I'm a third year History student and am really glad I came to study at the University of Lincoln. The staff on my course have been brilliant and are always happy to help and often quickly answer any queries you might email them. Their lectures and seminars are very interesting and engaging. The campus feels modern with many buildings being newly built and there are great places to socialise. I like how it doesn't feel isolated and you can easily move between the campus and the city. I really recommend joining a society; I've been part of Athletics since first year and made some great friends and gone to great social activities with them. I feel that it's definitely the best way to meet people and branch out. There's definitely something to do for everyone. The Careers Centre are fantastic and been especially helpful during my third year. It's definitely worth speaking to them in first year too as there's lots of events they put on and many resources to use which are really helpful.
Great facilities the Libary is always quite
very good snd friendly university
Clean campus and wide range of societies
It's difficult to judge the University's facility fairly in these challenging times. However, so far we have found communications good and they seem to be doing everything they can to keep students updated and supported. Study is a blended offer at the moment and the tutors are working hard on this.
Great facilities - lots of resources and help available. A lot of help is given with building Linkedin and CV’s. Not so much help with finding a placement but it is very competitive. The course is wonderful with very useful modules that can be applied both in and out of work environment. Lots of social events and clubs :)
I’m just in my room most of the time and a first year so haven’t really experienced the careers service or societies, the students union did a good job trying to make freshers week the best it could be and I appreciate that. The wifi is good in my room but I know some people struggle with staying connected. I want to be able to watch a lecture in a bloody lecture hall!!!!
It’s got good facilities and a nice campus.
Not been down to the university yet
Good nice small university with everything within walking distance
Great online learning with accessible resources
Good Module Choosing, helps ease students into uni life
This is a good university overall and there is very little, if anything, to fault.However, the student union is not as great
Buildings are nice and looked after. Close to shops.
Great campus with a fantastic lobrary
Beautiful campus, everything in walking distance. Love the new and old buildings.
Great uni with a good campus, everything is really close together. Library is great, staff are nice!
Excellent university; campus facilities are very accommodating and easy to find. Particularly recommend the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre.
Great experience I enjoyed my whole time here
Great uni and the nightlife is great
I have nothing bad to say about the university. Staff are helpful, careers have assisted so much during placement search. And lots of opportunities to enhance CV
I had a really nice experience! Therefore I decided to do my master as well!
Good university, bad careers service
Great University, really nice city
The campus facilities are great, especially the library which is big and well-run. There are a lot of societies to choose from (although some are naturally better run than others). Lincoln is both peaceful with the cathedral quarter as well as having a good night life.
Small but modern uni, nice area but very small. Was double booked for exams and basically got left to deal with it so got no grade for the one I couldnt turn up for. Lived in cygnet wharf, nice accom but felt lifeless and wireless internet could be tempremental.
Best uni to come to for any career
The University of Lincoln is amazing.
I love the city I love my university. Living here is probably the best decision of my life that I had made. The people are generally friendly and I feel safe, even walking at night. The staff are excellent and helpful. My course has provided me with absolutely everything I needed from equipment to help. I don’t recommend starting an Erasmus application however - that and it’s disorganisation has completely ruined my second year. Regardless, UoL is definitely a place to study.
A small campus so a really community feel. Great facilities - lots of spaces to learn and use computers, and a lot of library sources are accessible online. Great staff.
The support services and student wellbeing are helpful

The support services and student wellbeing are helpful though
I really wouldn't recommend this university to anyone for postgrad design study, some good teachers and some vague. Most of the time powerpoints with big grammars that confuse students like they expect you to figure it out without actually explaining and teaching. Really wish i hadn't studied here and that just for 1yr. The support services and student wellbeing are helpful though
It’s a good uni preferred edge hill campus but the teachers are good
Great university that is constantly climbing the league tables. The facilities provided on campus are excellent. There is a plethora of societies that can be joined, or you can set your own up. The city itself is great, there are lots of places to eat and shop, and the nightlife is great.
Great Uni and I would recommend it to anyone! The nightlife on campus is great and the facilities. They have everything you need and more. The well-being services are some of the best I have experienced, which I think is important for a lot of students.
Awful staff. Very lazy lectures who don't want to teach.
Don't waste your time and money going here. If you like spice heads crawling around, a student union based on exploiting students for their time and money and horribly funded courses where weirdly £9,000 doesn't cover your whole course then you might as well come here. The most helpful review is clearly fake so don't pay any attention to it. Wet and windy, homelessness is rife and they're predatory towards freshers especially.
Internet is shaky, sometimes works okay other times doesn’t
Great university, am studying Business Economics and the quality of the lectures and seminars are amazing. Plenty of help provided if needed and the social aspect of the university is outstanding
Honestly, biggest pile of rath of a University i've ever had to deal with. My partner is becoming a Nurse and so many silly issues where you can have assessors who don't actually know what they are assessing and grading you as a third year student, when you are a first. When complaining about your grade, you get a moderator out who just plains mediator with the two parties. University of Lincoln deserves to be shut down. Period.
Very good service with every aspect, the teaching is very good and the tutors are always happy to help.
The university itself is always punching well above it's weight in my opinion and it makes me happy to see how far it has come in such a short time. My time here was filled with some of the brightest and most interesting people I have met. The staff are professional, accomplished and inspiring at times and the courses are top notch. I really loved my time here and will cherish the memories I have made. I think leaving was the hardest part of it.
The experience that vividly lives with me is the injustice, and structural oppression I have witnessed as an International student. If you have a major disability concern, the University cannot support you because you are an International student. Your support is linked to your status, which made question why International students will be offered admissions. It is discriminatory. Unfortunately, the International Office is not useful for an International student. Hence, you have a lone voice, you fight your battles alone. My experience was chilling and horrifying. The University made a grave mistake on my CAS, by inputting the wrong dates of studies completion. I had to fight, writing several mails that were disputed before I got partial 'seemingly' justice. Partial because I was made for a second time to show maintenance fees to the Home Office. My experience is horrifying, it affected my health and wellbeing, hence I wouldn't recommend the University to any International students.
I'm a fresher and have been at lincoln for a few weeks now, studying History (I know). So far the lecturers and seminar leaders have been great, especially Michele from the history dept. There are a lot of societies on offer and the student union hosts a large number of events. The campus has a lot of facilities including a good library, a sports centre and football pitch a pub and a club/music venue. The use of the Blackboard site also makes it easy to access course resources. So far the social experience has been great as Lincoln itself is a great student city. Also, everything is close together so shopping is nice and easy.
Excellent view which gives you the concerntion to study and get assigments, post readings and exams in the right frame of mind.
Easy access of library, very handy when exams and assignments are due in!
Good uni personally didn’t suit me as I couldnt get used to the city it’s self as I found it every small.
Most of the staff are wonderful and always happy to help you out
Great University situated in the heart of Lincoln with really good facilities and help provided for students.
Sometime wifi can not be connected.
The facilities are mostly modern and well maintained. The services available do seem to assist students in the best way possible. It just seems that the healthcare options on campus require vast improvement
Overall the university is very good, it offers a variety of sport and general societies. I like the fact that the university is open 24hr it is appreciated for when i need to do long period of studying.
Fantastic up and coming university with amazing facilities, teaching and guidance is superb plus the medical school will be built for 2020/21. Only down side is the lack of activities in Lincoln, but of course we won’t hold that against the uni.
I love living and studying at the University of Lincoln. Everything on my course is amazing so far - my personal tutor has been so helpful. I love my accommodation. I didn’t decide I needed accommodation until after results days and the accommodation team couldn’t have been more helpful! I love Lincoln and I’m so glad I came here!
As a former student I have a lot experiences in Lincoln and in Uni. Teachers and students are great - no problem there. The office staffs (admin groups) are horrible! - no communication between 2 offices, it takes ages to get a letter/pass files. Some of the staffs are not very friendly to the International students (specially coming from few specific countries). We were pretty strong group in there (7-9) students but more or less we all have similar experiences from the Uni staffs. Its a shame that such a good Uni has staffs like them who treated us not so politely.
Amazing course and modules. Science labs second to none.
The school is nice and modern , it’s overall cool.
Amazing university. Good support to international students. Very friendly and great teaching.
A relatively new University that so far has impressed me with an excellent SU, as well as a great course that has helped me develop my existing skills - Lincoln is a small but great city, with convenient placement of everything you need, including shops, restaurants and night life.
I love Lincoln. Everything is nearby, the facilities are great and it is just a brilliant place to live. The teachers are really great and I've made some amazing friends - just in my first year but really love it here.
Great University with excellent facilities.
I'm in my first year doing Media Production and I definitely chose the right uni. The best place to be for friendly students, staff and all round is perfect.
Lincoln University is a great university overall, it is great location, everything is within 5 minutes walk of each other and it is a very welcoming and holy place. Unfortunately for an art student graduate (illustration graduate) there isn't much help in looking for graduate illustration work nor preparation or much career service for it along with not much help in freelance illustrating. But this is just one specific course, the campus and nightlife is great although not great if you like alternative music/night life like rock city in Nottinghamshire. There are plenty of clubs, great library and good facilities.
There are lots of things to do on campus including cafes, pubs and bars, all at reasonable prices. There are many different clubs and societies, you will definitely find something for you. The SU is great and they get involved in a lot and put on a lot of great events for everyone. The careers service is great if you know about it. My course made sure I knew about them and we get sent a lot of information about how to improve our CVs or job prospects in the future. The internet is better on campus then in my accommodation I will regularly update apps on my phone while at uni or go to the library to do my research as the internet is faster than that at my accommodation.
Internet is very temperamental and always has been where I live in Lincoln.
Although it's not the largest university, the amount it has grown since I started in first year is so noticeable, and I know it is going to carry on growing. The Students Union is really helpful, the nightlife is so affordable and varied, and I love it!
Brilliant uni! Has only got better in my three years here!
It's a campus based uni and everything is so close that you can walk to town in about 5 minutes. It's a great location and the lecturers are all really friendly and happy to help as well as being great during lectures and clearly enjoy their subject. Accommodation varies, I'm in brayford quays which I really like despite the touchy WiFi, but courts is a bit prisony and gateway seems rushed. However most accommodation is great and reasonably priced. Great uni and I'm glad I picked it
I was so worried about coming to Lincoln but it is the best experience of my life. The teachers are great along with the facilities. Best uni by far
provided me with fantastic opportunities that have helped me out in the world
Business school is utter crap no help from staff subjects are pointless and do not relate to real life business. In three years here I haven't learnt a thing about real life business all lectures do is read off the slides and you'll be lucky to understand them as most have strong accents.
The uni is new and so really modern, and the city is beautiful and full of history and wonderful places to see and the nightlife is excellent for a small city. The courses are varied and interesting, the lecturers seem to really care about what they teach and are motivating. I wouldn't have loved any other uni as much as I do this one
Great atmosphere and wonderful helpful staff/lecturers
Very poor - Lecturers struggle to speak english
Has everything I ever needed and more. So many opportunities to be involved in Sports and Societies and support from every angle throughout university right up to now. Even supported getting my freelance business off the ground!
Really enjoying my first year really welcoming. I have settled in very well. Love all the things I've been doing both socially and educationally.
Lovely campus in a beautiful area.
Lovely campus in a lovely area. Standard of teaching is very high and the facilities to do so are exceptional. I really have no complaints other than the timetabling of science subjects to be at the same times as most society meetings so science students miss out on extra curricular sometimes. Other than that, it's brilliant.
its hella awesome 10/10 would recommend
I love it here, there is no end of support available and the city is great
I enjoyed my first year and I am returning to do my 2nd year of Media Production. There are room for improvements for course organisation, hopefully it's better for my 2nd year. However the university itself is very nice, there is always something going on thanks to the students union. The campus is nice and Lincoln itself is a beautiful little city.
Brilliant tutor support, great state of the art facilities & Lincoln has everything you need within a short walk.
I've just finished my second year and loved every minute of it, not had a problem!
The best modern university out there. I have had an amazing three years, the course is well taught, the SU offers so much and life in Lincoln is great. I have loved my time at Lincoln and wish I could do it all again!
Lincoln is a friendly, welcoming uni with so many lovely staff and amazing opportunities!
Great uni, can see where they're spending the tuition fees which is nice to see! Constantly updating buildings/systems etc. Amazing social life, always something going off somewhere so never bored! So close to town, never had to get a taxi or public transport once for anything, so cheap!
Fantastic university! I'm entering my 3rd year there and wouldn't change a thing. Campus is gorgeous and staff are lovely!
It's actually an incredible place to go. I love it
Loved my time at Lincoln. Has all the best facilities and courses. Would recommend anyone to go there.
everything's close to the uni including all the buildings, easy to find your way around, great buildings and lecturers
Had an amazing first year, and with the Internet/WiFi, I was getting 500Mb+ in courts.
Great university. I have loved my first year at Lincoln. The accommodation (courts) was great, wish the cleaning staff were more friendly. Course was great fun and I look forward to next year.
Had a fantastic first year, which I believe is down to both the brilliant city and the amazing university!
I think it is a fantastic university, staff and people are helpful they really care about students and their needs. Good courses and fit life style of nowadays.
The facilities on campus are easily accessible. The library could have more study space and computer working areas as it can sometimes be difficult to find space.
Coming from a small town this university is brilliant, the city isnt huge but the night life is great! There are loads of societies to join and everyone is friendly
After first year, the university experience seems to have been positive. No issues with the university.
I really enjoyed my first year at the University of Lincoln, despite it being a new course, it ran smoothly and came together really well
good overall not had much dealings with the students union yet
This university is absolutely amazing, and I'm glad that it seems to be growing at a fast rate. It's the perfect mix of student nightlife without being overcrowded, as well as being great when you need a relaxing day as well. There are all the facilities you could need on campus - great rehearsal space for performance degrees, a fantastic library, multiple study locations and 2 great bars right on campus. I would recommend Lincoln university to anyone and everyone. They are super supportive and really listen to there students. I wish I could go back and carry on studying as I had the best days of my life there!
Could be better. Student services are rubbish, some things are abit unorganised. Location is good, I enjoyed lectures.
Absolutely love the University of Lincoln! The people, the nightlife, the location! Amazing educational facility - with such amazing views! The town has everything you could ever need. I highly recommend coming to an open day and having a look round at not only the Uni, but Lincoln as a whole! A great place to live and study for 3 or more years!!
Such a great uni, severely underrated, needs more activities planned, trips out etc.
- Campus is fairly modern and always being updated - Beautiful setting within city (Brayford and views of Cathedral) - Excellent facilities - Students' Union really engaging - Good SU bars and venues - Huge variety of clubs and societies - WiFi does drop out a fair bit, but is accessible everywhere on campus - 24/7 library
