The ecclesiastical parish of Boultham covers most of Lincoln west of the River Witham near Lincoln High Street. The northern boundary is defined by Brayford Pool and the Fossdyke as far as Carholme Golf Course. The parish includes the University of Lincoln, Hartsholme and Swanpool. Tritton Road (B1003) runs through the centre of Boultham.

As at 2011, the Boultham ward on Lincoln City Council is represented by three Labour Party councillors; the ward on Lincolnshire County Council by one Labour Councillor.

A new library opened in June 2006.

Boultham Mere, created in 1989, is a nature reserve situated near a railway line and looked after by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. Its colony of Variable Damselfly is of national importance.
