All student rooms are comfortable single study/bedrooms. While we have a few double rooms these rooms tend to be given to family members both residing at the College at the same time. The rooms are fully equipped and this includes telephone and Internet access in each room. Rooms are serviced once a week. Students provide and launder their own linen in one of the College's two fully automatic coin operated laundromats.
Students are provided with three meals each day. These provide good quality, nutritious foods with a very good choice of meats, salads and vegetarian options. If you know that you will not be able to be at College for a meal (eg. due to a lecture) you can arrange beforehand for the kitchen to put a meal aside for you. See an

There are also small common areas located throughout the buildings serving as local catch up and relax points. These smaller areas contain facilities for having a snack and are also equipped with space for watching television or playing a board game.
Lincoln College has a strong tradition of musical excellence. Many of our students are accomplished musicians for whom music is an important cultural and social outlet.
