Lincoln College

Accommodation and Meals

For centuries, student life has centred around the quadrangles, staircases and chapel of Lincoln. It still does, but now modern facilities are incorporated within the medieval structure.

The College strives to provide for its students excellent and congenial accommodation in which to work and live. All undergraduates are accommodated for three years in the College, if they wish. First and second-year undergraduates are mostly housed in the old part of the College, or in Lincoln House and the Mitre Rooms opposite. Third-year undergraduates are usually accommodated round the corner, on the High Street or at Lincoln Hall, a ten minute walk from the College and close to all the science departments.  All rooms are equipped with a wash-basin, and those in the old quads and in Museum Road haver en-suite facilities. Consultation about fees and charges, and provision of facilities takes place regularly with the officers of the Junior Common Room. Undergraduates are free to live outside the College if they wish, and some - a very few - do so. 

The central location of Lincoln has great advantages. Almost everything is close at hand. The Bodleian Library and Radcliffe Camera (parts of the main University Library) are one minute away; all the laboratories and faculty institutes and libraries are within easy walking distance, as are the city's cinemas, theatres and restaurants, and the colourful covered market with its range of shops is just round the corner on Market Street.

The food served at Lincoln College is regarded as perhaps the best in the University. This has consequences for College life, and Hall provides a focus for the life of the College far more than is now generally the case in most colleges in Oxford. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in Hall. There is a self-service dinner at around 6.15 p.m. and a more formal dinner at 7.15 p.m, Sunday to Friday during term. On most evenings students may invite guests.

The friendly and atmospheric College bar  (Deep Hall) serves bar meals as well as drinks and snacks for lunch.
