This is a great option for students who want to live independently and economically. If you are planning to go flatting, please do not sign up to a place before you have seen it. We suggest you book temporary accommodation before your arrival and then look.
A great place to start your search for a flat is on the Lincoln Flats Facebook page or try notice boards around campus. Students typically live in Lincoln, Riccarton and Prebbleton. These areas have a regular bus service out to campus.
