Welcome back to campus

Whilst the University and its Halls of Residence remain open, the way in which staff and students access the Estate and its services during this time has changed.

The documents on this page have been produced to outline the changes made on campus with regards to the Covid-19 pandemic. These guides intend to support staff and students in their endeavours using buildings on campus in a safe and responsible manner.

What changes have been made to the estate?

Our team has worked hard to provide the following:

  • New building flows, including one-way routes in many areas
  • Clear social distancing signage
  • More hand sanitiser stations across campus
  • Increased cleaning with a focus on touchpoints in buildings

More detail can be found in the documents listed below.

View our Building User Guide:

The Building User Guide exists in addition to all current policies and guidance provided by the University of Lincoln. It pertains to the immediate measures taken by Estates to ensure that individuals can return to work on campus safely.

View our office guidance:

Estates have also put together guidance about returning to the office for staff. This guidance is to help Professional Services and Academics prepare for a reduced number of staff to return to campus.

What services are still available for students on campus?

The University of Lincoln remains open to support our students. The Library, Student Support Centre and Student Wellbeing Centre and Health Centre are open, both on campus and online, and support continues to be available for students through personal tutors and the Students’ Union. These services can be accessed through the contact details on the Student Services website.

The University GP surgery remains open but we recommend that students ring them before any visits. If students have any academic concerns or questions they should contact their personal tutor or School.

Timetabled teaching scheduled on campus is unaffected.


What should University staff do if you need regular access to a building on campus?

If you need regular to access a building, please contact your Pro Vice Chancellor or Head of Area to gain authorisation.  The University HR Department is also able to provide letters for University staff who are essential workers (available via the HR Portal pages).

I need a new parking permit, can I still collect one?

The Estates Department is suspending issuing new parking permits for either staff or students during the current campus restrictions. Staff who are classed as Essential Workers and who need to park on campus (but who do not have a new parking pass due to the suspension), must contact Security and the Support Desk to inform them.

How do I contact the Estates Support Desk?

Estates Support Desk staff are currently working from home. Please email estatessupport@lincoln.ac.uk(opens in a new tab) with any queries or log a job via Support Desk tab above.  Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
