Lincoln, England - University of Lincoln

The Lincoln Story: A city of significance

Brayford Pool, the site of the University of Lincoln's main campus, has always been an important spot in the city.  As far back as the Iron Age, the Celts are thought to have named the town 'Lindon', meaning 'the pool', as it was the source of all water, trade and transport in the area.

The Romans, too, chose the city because of its inland marina, building their fortress high up on the hill to protect the pool.  Lincoln became one of the most important Roman, and then Viking, settlements in the country.  When the Cathedral was first built in the 11th century, it overtook the Great Pyramids to become the tallest man-made structure in the world.


The University of Lincoln:

Her Majesty the Queen opened the first University of Lincoln building on the Brayford Campus in 1996.  It was a University forged by the will of a community, not by a government directive, and the first new city center campus to be built in the UK for decades. The Times Good University Guide described it as "the most dramatic transformation of a university in recent times."  There are currently around 9,200 undergraduates students studying at Lincoln’s campus on the Brayford Pool.
