Graduate Accommodation

At Lincoln, we are able to accommodate the majority of first-year graduate students, as well as many second- and third-year students. All rooms contain a bed, a desk, a desk chair, and a wardrobe. There may also be additional storage space or furniture where space allows. Unfortunately we do not currently have accommodation suitable for couples or families, but this type of accommodation can be arranged through the University.

Where will my accommodation be?

We have three complexes of dedicated graduate accommodation in the city centre: Bear Lane (three minutes’ walk from main College), the EPA Centre on Museum Road (10 minutes’ walk), or Little Clarendon Street (13 minutes’ walk). All rooms have access to kitchens, and all rooms at the EPA and Little Clarendon Street have en-suite bathrooms.

How much will it cost?

There is a wide variety of accommodation available across the three sites, and rooms are available at varying price points (bands A to D). Rooms have been designated their band based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, noise, natural light, amenities, room size, whether it has an en suite, the number of people sharing a kitchen etc.

For 2021-22, the prices according to band are as follows:

  • Band A = £26.30 per day / £6811.70 per year (based on a 37 week contract)
  • Band B = £25.25 per day / £6539.75 per year (based on a 37 week contract)
  • Band C = £23.55 per day / £6099.45 per year (based on a 37 week contract)
  • Band D = £21 per day / £5439 per year (based on a 37 week contract)

You will be able to indicate your band preference in advance, and the allocation of rooms from second year onwards is decided by a ballot, run by current graduate students.

Most rooms are let for the academic year (37 weeks) with the option to extend into the Summer Vacation.
