From the Head of College

My relationship with Lincoln started long before my appointment as CEO and Head of College in 2017 – I’m proud to be a Lincoln College alumnus.

I spent my own academic years here, and so I understand first-hand the benefits of living in such a diverse and supportive environment.

It’s incredibly exciting to once again be part of this outstanding college; and humbling to stand in the shoes of the leaders who came before me. In steering the future of Lincoln, my aim is to create a place for you to learn, grow and become the best version of yourself you can be while in our care.

As Head of College, I wish to personally ensure you have the best opportunities to support your academic studies, by developing your leadership skills, your confidence and your future networks. While your time at university will give you the education to open up your career path, your time at Lincoln will help you achieve your academic goals, make lifelong friends, get your dream job and have lots of fun in the process!

Your wellbeing and success is at the heart of everything we do.

Our leading academic program, with additional study tutorials, is designed to help improve your academic record; and our global network of alumni provides you with access to knowledge and connections that will help you find a job when you finish your degree.

I believe Lincoln has always set a shining example for university student accommodation. As a multicultural college, we welcome and value cultural diversity. We have created a safe and inclusive community where you are encouraged to express yourself in the way that feels right for you. Living at Lincoln will feel like a second home, where you are accepted, protected and among friends.

Your time at Lincoln will be a fun, dynamic experience that nurtures all facets of your personal development. With a calendar packed full of sporting and social events, and a fantastic array of facilities for creative and musical pursuits, there are endless opportunities to create a fulfilling life.

At Lincoln, you will achieve more, enjoy life, and build lasting friendships. It could be the best decision you will make for your future.

Why not come and see for yourself? I’m confident you’ll feel welcomed, and be impressed by the facilities and support we offer.
