Our Vision

Is to be a Students' Union where every Lincoln student has a great experience and is encouraged and assisted to fulfill their potential both at University and in life.


Our Mission

We will be an independent, democratic, membership organisation, working in partnership with the University of Lincoln to ensure that our members' voices are heard, amplified and acted upon.

We will be an important part of shaping and developing our students' academic, social, sporting and working life by providing services, advice , support and representation to all that need it, so that our students can be work ready when they graduate.


Our Values

We promise that the way that we do things will live up to the values which students have told us we should operate by.


We are...

Strong. Quality. Dynamic. Approachable. Nurturing. Honest.


Our Objectives and Aims

The Education Act 1994 sets out the powers and responsibilities of Students' Unions and we must operate within these parameters. The objectives of the University of Lincoln Students' Union (SU) are the advancement of education at the University of Lincoln (UoL) for the public benefit by:

  • promoting the interests and welfare of our members during their course of study, as well as offering representation, support and advice;
  • being the recognised representative channel between our members and UoL and any other external bodies; and
  • providing social, cultural, sporting and recreational activities and forums, for discussions and debate, for the personal development of its members.
