Hi – I’d like to welcome you to Lincoln on behalf of all the Student Officers and staff members here at your Students’ Union.

University is a place to learn and to develop life experience, making valuable memories along the way, and we’re here to help you get involved in your University of Lincoln experience, with a great range of opportunities.

Your Sabbatical Officers are here to represent you, along with a variety of Volunteer Officers. Talk to us, tell us what you want. It’s your University experience and we want to help you make the most of it.

My biggest piece of advice is to enjoy your time in Lincoln. We can’t wait to be part of giving you a happy and memorable time here in Lincoln.

Don’t forget, you’re a member of the Students’ Union as soon as you enrol.

Brian, Students' Union President
