Happenings at Lincoln
There is always a lot going on a Lincoln. We have research and business promotion bodies on campus and also run education programmes.
Our campus redevelopment is about developing a more modern, vibrant and safe campus, providing a positive campus experience for our students and staff, and growing our future as a world-class research and teaching precinct.
- The dedicated student area in the ground floor of the George Forbes building, a great place to meet friends, or just grab a snack and coffee.
- An upgrade of our Recreation Centre adding 1800m2 floor space, to combine fit for purpose exercise, teaching and research space. You will be able to use your free membership to have a great fitness experience.
- Science South
This new facility provides new laboratories and office facilities for both staff and a large number of post-graduate students.
Our new flagship science building with labs and teaching areas, and collaborative teaching spaces.
We are embracing the use of solar power on campus installing the biggest array on a NZ University last year on Te Kete Ika and another on the RFH Building.
Based within the campus, B.linc Innovation works with leading organisations, start-ups, CRIs, growers and universities to address the topical challenges facing the food and agriculture industries. B.linc focuses on what’s next for Aotearoa New Zealand’s agriculture, food and fibre sector.
From farmers and entrepreneurs to scientists and academics we create connections, encourage collaboration, share knowledge and experiences enabling innovative solutions for a better world for our future.
Te Mātāpuna Mātātahi | Children’s University aims to raise young people’s aspirations for higher education and encourage lifelong learning. The University of Canterbury and Lincoln University are working in partnership to deliver the programme, which is the first of its kind in New Zealand.
There are two components to the programme:
- Passport to Learning: for children aged 7 – 14 years
- Passport to Volunteering: for young people aged 14-18 years.
Children and young people join the programme through their school or rūnanga and are issued a Passport to Learning or Volunteering. They fill the passport with hours of learning or volunteering outside the school classroom. The passport is stamped by registered Learning Destinations or volunteering organisations.
Once 30 hours of learning or volunteering are reached, students are invited to attend a graduation ceremony to celebrate their achievements.
Lincoln University Māori and Pasifika Festival
We are excited to be hosting the inaugural Lincoln University Māori and Pasifika Festival on campus on November 13. It will be a cultural celebration featuring performances from all age groups as well as food stalls and is open to all the community. We will be sharing more details soon, and we would love to see you there.
