Lincoln College

About the college

Located in the heart of the city, Lincoln is one of Oxford’s smaller colleges with just over 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.

Students at Lincoln College

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.

Link areas 

In order to ensure that all areas of the UK are fully supported by the University of Oxford, our colleges are working together to establish Oxford for UK, a series of regional outreach programmes offering tailored and local support to students of mixed ages, their parents and teachers.
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.
Lincoln College is part of Oxford for East Midlands.

Link Regions


In addition to their existing link areas, Lincoln also offers bespoke and local outreach in the North East of England.
