University of Lincoln


Location and Demographics
The University of Lincoln is located in Lincoln, a city in England with a population of about 100,000 people. Lincoln is in the East Midlands region of England, approximately 2 hours north of London by train. Lincoln has an interesting medieval history; its most famous landmark is a 900-year-old cathedral on a hill overlooking the city. The city is filled with charm, which can be experienced through a walk up “Steep Hill,” the cobblestone street lined with tea shops and pubs that winds through the historic district and up to the cathedral, or a walk along Brayford Pool, a lake in the city center that has had considerable development along its shores over the past few decades. The University of Lincoln has a picturesque location along the southern bank of Brayford Pool.
