Lincoln offers a 20 per cent rent reduction for all students in uni accommodation

‘Our aim at Lincoln is to support our students as best we can’

In an email to all students, the University of Lincoln has confirmed that students living in university-managed accommodation will have their rent reduced by 20 per cent for the second rent instalment.

These accommodations include Lincoln Courts, Cygnet Wharf, Valentine Court, The Gateway, Longdales Lodge, Viking House, and 179 High Street.

The University of Lincoln said: “We want to support students where we have the authority to do so, and as a result, for our residents in University-managed accommodation…

“We are reducing the second rent installment due this month (due to be collected from the 20th of January) by 20 per cent.”

The email continues: “The Government had indicated that they anticipate all students may resume face-to-face learning at some point during February, which we do hope will be the case, but of course, many students are currently living in their residence in Lincoln.

“For anyone not in their University managed accommodation at the moment, please be assured that your possession are secured and untouched in your rooms where you left them and that the buildings are being maintained.

“For students not in University managed accommodation, we will work with our Students’ Union to encourage accommodation landlords to be as flexible as possible.

“There is no legal obligation for any landlord to offer reductions but we hope they will respond, understanding the challenges students are facing at this time and act fairly.”
