There are so many different accommodation options at Lincoln to suit different people and they're building more at the moment. I stayed in Cygnet wharf when it was brand new and I loved it, my flat was beautiful, my bedroom and en suite were amazing and the kitchen is just insane. Highly recommend despite it being pricey
The library is equipped so well for the amount of students, you never struggle to get books that you need and there are so many facilities for printing and doing work. The classrooms are great, there are plenty of seminar spaces always equipped with enough chairs for everyone and great for whatever you need them for, they can even be booked out by students to do projects. The SU is great, they have so many societies and opportunities for people to further themselves and make friends.
I love my course. The creative writing side of it helps me in so many ways and they never restrict my freedom, they always let me write about whatever I want to write about. The lectures are helpful because they give us all the information needed, and tutors push you to do your best and help you in whichever ways they can. I honestly couldn't recommend my course more.
I love lincoln as a city. It's small enough to feel homey and not too busy and yet big enough to still be a good city. It also has the modern parts and the older parts with the cathedral which is refreshing. The night life is amazing, very cheapcheap for students and so many offers for wherever you want to go.
Go into it with and open mind and a passion for reading and just take yourself from there. Be prepared to write in different styles that you've never thought of before but might grow to seriously love. Also talk to people! They all love very similar things

I am currently living in cygnet wharf, which is definitely the nicest accommodation the university has. The rooms have lots of board space to put pictures and other things on and the ensuite toilets are very clean and aesthetically pleasing. Although the rooms are slightly smaller than other accommodations, we have 3/4 beds so it is very nice to get the extra bed space. The kitchen is also beautiful; part of it contains full-length windows and as it is a high-rise building we have wonderful views. We also have a large TV in the kitchen and a walk-in cupboard containing the cleaning items, eg vacuums, so they don't clog up the living space. The sofas in the kitchen are slightly hard, however it is a new accommodation and the sofas have not been worn in so is expected.
The library is a very beautiful looking building, however slightly more table space (without computers there) is required. It contains high-quality computers and contains all the books needed for my degree. The lecture rooms are very large and contain large screens so it is easy to see what's going on wherever you are in the hall. The university gym is small however contains all the basics needed to keep healthy and active. The Swan student bar serves lovely food and is very cosy, and holds a quiz every Sunday which is great fun. The Towerbar is larger and great for watching the football. The engine shed, which holds student nights, is very large and has drinks at great prices.
The lecturers are great at explaining module content and make the content very interesting. We go on lots of trips, from zoos to ecology centres, which are great fun but also very enriching. Modules I study in the first year include genetics, animal behaviour and vertebrate physiology which are all very interesting. The balance of coursework and exams is also very good.
For a small city, there is a fair amount to do. You can visit the cathedral, go shopping and have fun in escape rooms during the day and then have a great choice of clubs to go to in the evening. There is often live music on at the engine shed which is also good. There are many great restaurants around the city as well.
The lecturers are always quick to respond if you ever have any questions and the lecture materials are always easy to follow. Most lecturers also record their lectures so you can access them whenever you want online. In the first year modules most modules grades are from 50% of coursework and 50% from exams, so no matter how you learn best you have a fair chance of getting the best grades possible. We do lots of interesting labs which help us get hands on experience in different module areas and the trips we go on are also great fun.
