Lincoln College will be open from 9am until 5pm to welcome drop-in visitors. Tours of the College, led by our friendly undergraduate ambassadors, will run every few minutes throughout the day and do not require advance booking. You may also wish to visit our 'Ask an Expert' desk, where the Schools Liaison Officer, Admissions Officer or Senior Tutor will be delighted to answer your questions or offer advice on your application. 

Advance booking is not required to attend our subject tutor meetings, but please be aware that some sessions have a limited capacity, so please ensure you arrive in good time.  


Other opportunities to visit:

Prospective applicants are very welcome to drop in and look around the College throughout the year.  Our Schools Liaison Officer is happy to meet applicants and their families at any time, or to arrange a tour of Lincoln with a current undergraduate studying your subject.

You are also welcome to look around the College yourself. Please call in advance to check that Lincoln is open.

Teachers wishing to bring a school group on a different date may wish to look at our schools liaison pages.
