Lincoln College

Located in the heart of the city, Lincoln is one of Oxford’s smaller colleges with about 300 undergraduates. We guarantee accommodation for each year of your course. All first-year rooms have ensuite facilities, as do a significant proportion of our other rooms. Our library is one of the most beautiful in Oxford.

We know that finance can be a barrier to university and we provide a number of generous bursaries, as well as grants and scholarships, to support those who require help. Our food is regarded as excellent and our dining hall serves three meals every day during term time. Our popular college bar also serves lighter meals.

We provide free membership to the University gym and have a sports field and boathouse. We have college teams in most sports and a number of student societies. Drama and music are particularly popular and each year the Turl Street Arts Festival provides a special focus for student-led arts events.

In order to make it easier for you to establish a first point of contact with our University, every Oxford college is ‘linked’ to a particular region of the UK. The ‘link’ college will know their region particularly well and already have contact with schools and students in the area.

Getting in touch with the college linked to your region has no influence on your chances of being accepted to this or any other particular college. You are also very welcome to get in touch with any other college for advice about applying or studying here.
