University of Lincoln


  • The first University of Lincoln building was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1996. It was the first new city centre campus to be built in the UK for decades.
  • More than £150 million has now been invested in transforming a brownfield site into an award-winning, state-of-the-art learning environment for thousands of students each year, and a dynamic build programme continues to add to this investment.
  • The University is worth more than £250 million to the local economy, doubling local economic growth rates and creating more than 3,000 new jobs.
