Lincoln College is committed to the health, wellbeing, and safety of our residents and staff.

Our aim remains to provide a happy, healthy, safe, inclusive and friendly environment for you to flourish and grow – now, and into the future.

Lincoln College continues to work with the advice provided by SA Health, the Federal Government, and South Australian universities in managing the risks associated with the current COVID-19 outbreak.

Lincoln College has also postponed all business-related domestic & international travel and has requested that all staff and residents declare any personal journeys.

A number of additional steps have been taken with immediate effect at our college.

Lincoln Testimonials


"It’s the first time I’ve lived
away from home and I was
worried but as soon as I arrived
everybody was so welcoming,
it was amazing. I had people
immediately settle me in and
made sure that I was okay. It
surprised me how quickly I felt
at home. Wonderful place to live,
tidy and friendly environment-you
will leave feeling more like family
than collegians".
