Welcome to the official blog for the University of Lincoln Accommodation Department. Our bloggers Sophie, Lilly and Lucy will bring you weekly updates for the department and their top questions and tips for living in University-managed accommodation.

At Accommodation Services, we manage six accommodation sites near the heart of Lincoln city centre. Our accommodations are built with a sense of community with a team of staff assisting with your daily needs and enquiries.

Our friendly teams of Clerical Assistants and Administrators are on hand at each site to help and welcome you to your new home. Down at each Reception, staff will be covering all aspects of university-run living; from sorting vast amounts of posts and handling maintenance enquiries to answering questions and offering support. We invite you to pop down and have a chat with the team anytime!
