Living on Campus

There's nothing like living in a friendly village atmosphere to help you thrive as a student. That's exactly what you'll find with our on-campus accommodation.

Home away from home

There are many advantages to living in campus accommodation. Youll be part of a close community of around 600 like-minded people, which offers the potential to make hundreds of lifelong friends. Residing on campus puts you at the centre of uni life and a short distance from everything you need  friends, food, gyms, shops, bars, cafes and, of course, lectures! It's a great way to start your life at university.  

Social life on tap

Living on campus, you'll have a ready-made social life on your doorstep and a fantastic support network that comes in handy when you're away from home for the first time. There's always a lot going on and when you need to get some study done or enjoy a bit of “me-time”, just close your door. 

Every hall has at least one Residential Assistant (RA) living on-site with you. These are seasoned Lincoln students, available to help with everything from study tips or talking through any issues you might have. Of course, it goes without saying that there is free and unlimited WiFi, so you can connect with friends and family whenever you want. 

Health and happiness

As a campus resident, your mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing are all well catered for. Gyms, pastoral care services and the Student Health Centre are all just a few minutes’ walk from where you live. 

Types of accommodation

Everyone is different, so each accommodation option has its own personality and vibe


We have seven fully-catered Halls of Residence, all centrally located and owned and run by Lincoln University. Each hall has free unlimited WiFisocial areas and SKY TV.

First-year students normally live in the catered halls and those who are more mature reside in our self-catered flats. However, anyone is welcome in the fully-catered facilities - it's great to have all your meals provided for you! 

Cost per year
Centennial Hall Six rooms per pod Fully catered


Colombo Hall Single rooms Fully catered $14,400
Hudson Hall Single rooms Fully catered


Lowrie Hall Single rooms Fully catered $14,400
The Quarters Single rooms Fully catered $18,950
Southland Hall Six rooms per pod Fully catered $17,900
Stevens Hall Single rooms Fully catered




We have two self-catered flat options, including new flats with ensuite bathrooms in each room. There are four or five rooms per unit and you can either tell us who you want to live with or we'll match you up. 

Flats are 
great for students from second year and above, as they offer independent living. Like the Halls of Residence, they have Residential Assistants, organised events, security and support when needed. 

Cost per week
Farm Road Four-bedroom units Self-catered $240
Farm Road (with en suite) Five-bedroom units Self-catered $285
The Junction Five-bedroom units Self-catered $260


We have a limited amount of campus houses, ranging from two to four bedrooms. They're ideal for students with families but, as you can imagine, they are in high demand. Please speak directly with Accommodation Services to be considered for a house.

Res Life $300

Our online accommodation system

To keep your accommodation processes streamlined, we use an online system called Portal X, which will allow you to see your account in real time, complete forms and make accommodation payments.

You'll be able to access the system using your Lincoln logins once you have joined us as a student resident.

Book your campus tour

The best way to experience the campus and soak up the atmosphere is to see it for yourself. We arrange personalised guided tours of the campus on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, at 10am and 2pm. You’ll follow an itinerary designed just for you, so you can see the parts of campus that interest you the most. Tours take approximately 60 minutes. Book your tour
