The University of Lincoln is a public research university in the city of Lincoln, England. The university has origins tracing back to 1861,[7] and after gaining university status in 1992, was known as the University of Humberside until 1996 and the University of Lincolnshire and Humberside until 2001, when it adopted its present name.

Lincoln is one of two universities in the city, alongside Bishop Grosseteste University. Lincoln's main campus is adjacent to Brayford Pool, the site of urban regeneration in the city since the 1990s; further campuses are located in Riseholme and Holbeach.[8]

The Independent described the university as "the best thing to happen to Lincoln since the Romans".[9] Lincoln has rapidly moved up in the university rankings, having risen 60 places in 4 years. The Sunday Times newspaper, responsible for The Times Good University Guide, has described the university's progression as "the most dramatic transformation of a university in recent times".[10] In 2012, the university ranked in the top 50 of The Guardian University Guide for the first time.[11] and in 2016, it has been ranked among the top 40 English universities in the first major student guide by The Complete University[12]

It is the University of Lincoln's annual tradition for student graduation ceremonies to take place at the medieval Lincoln Cathedral.

History[edit]

Development[edit]

The University of Lincoln developed from a number of educational institutions in Hull including the Hull School of Art (1861), the Hull Technical Institute (1893), the Roman Catholic teacher-training Endsleigh College (1905), the Hull Central College of Commerce (1930), and Kingston upon Hull College of Education (1913).[13][14] These institutions merged in 1976 to form Hull College of Higher Education,[15] with a change of name to Humberside College of Higher Education in 1983 when it absorbed several courses in fishing, food and manufacturing based in Grimsby.[13]

1990s[edit]

In 1992 it was one of the many institutions in the UK to become full universities as, briefly, the University of Humberside, growing to 13,000 students by 1993.[13]

The cathedral city of Lincoln was without its own university, so the University of Humberside was approached to develop a new campus to the south west of the city centre, overlooking the Brayford Pool. The University was renamed the University of Lincolnshire and Humberside in January 1996, taking in its first 500 Lincoln students in September 1996, intending to grow to about 4,000 Lincoln based students within four years.[16]

21st century[edit]

Looking towards the University of Lincoln across the Brayford Pool

With another change of name to the University of Lincoln in October 2001, a new campus was built in Lincoln. The University moved its main campus from Hull to Lincoln in 2002.[17]

Opened by Queen Elizabeth II, the University's main campus in Lincoln was the first new city centre campus to be built in the UK for decades. More than £150 million has been invested in the Brayford Pool campus, transforming a city centre brownfield site, revitalising the area and attracting investment from the retail, leisure and property sectors. Economists estimate that the University has created at least 3,000 new jobs within Lincoln and that it generates more than £250 million every year for the local economy – doubling previous local economic growth rates.[18]

The consolidation involved the University of Lincoln acquiring Leicester-based De Montfort University's schools in Lincolnshire: the Lincoln School of Art and Design in uphill Lincoln, and the Lincolnshire School of Agriculture's sites at Riseholme, Caythorpe and Holbeach. Caythorpe was later closed permanently and its activities moved to Riseholme. Courses held in Grimsby were also moved to Lincoln around this time.

In 2012 all Further Education provision was transferred from Riseholme College to Bishop Burton College. Bishop Burton College are now responsible for the Riseholme College to the north of the city.

Minerva Building, University of Lincoln

Throughout the late-1990s, the University's sites in Hull were considerably scaled down as the focus shifted towards Lincoln. In 2001 this process was taken a step further when the decision was made to move the administrative headquarters and management to Lincoln and to sell the Cottingham Road campus in Hull, the former main campus, to its neighbour, the University of Hull; the site is now the home of the Hull York Medical School. Until 2012 the University maintained a smaller campus, the Derek Crothall Building, in Hull city centre. A smaller campus and student halls on Beverley Road, Hull, were also sold for redevelopment.

On 28 October 2004, following its redevelopment as a specialist food science technology park, the National Centre for Food Manufacturing at Holbeach was reopened by John Hayes, the Member of Parliament for South Holland and the Deepings.

Cultural references[edit]

The foundation of a university for the City of Lincoln was predicted in the 1962 film The Wild and the Willing (called Kilminster University in the film). The city featured extensively and addressed the pre-occupations of a group of students in post-war England whilst studying at a provincial university. The steaminess of some of the storyline, a student having an affair with his professor's wife, catapulted Ian McShane to public view and the film also featured John Hurt and Virginia Maskell (BAFTA nominated for this role[60]). The film was retitled for the American market The Young and the Willing because the original name was felt too risqué. The people of Lincoln queued on release to see the film and are reported to have laughed aloud at the apparent geographical continuity errors.

In August 2000, the University's Learning Resources Centre (now the Media, Humanities & Technology building) was the location for some of Gwyneth Paltrow and Aaron Eckhart's scenes in Possession, the 2002 adaptation of A. S. Byatt's novel.[61] The film tells the story of a university academic based at the then fictional University of Lincoln and weaves contemporary university life with fictional reconstructions from the Victorian era. The story is held that when the film company were searching for locations for the fictional University of Lincoln they were surprised to find that it had been built since the novel had been written. Several staff gained work as extras in the film, and some walk-on roles made it through the cutting room to the final version of the film. Locations around Lincoln were also featured including Lincoln Central Railway Station, Lincoln Cathedral, historic Bailgate and James Street where Gwyneth Paltrow's character's home was based.

In 2009, in Series 5, Week 10 of The Apprentice, apprentices were posted to the Ideal World shopping channel by Lord Sugar and tasked with selling as much product on TV as possible. One apprentice, in a break, when describing it as such a difficult task said, "It's not as if we have been to the University of Lincoln where they learn how to do all this stuff..." .[citation needed] Several graduates from the Media Production degree at Lincoln had gone on to work at Ideal World and the apprentices had learnt of this during their visit.

The BBC has used the University's facilities over the years to record programmes such as BBC1's Question Time,[62] BBC Radio 4's Just a Minute[63] and recording the Lincolnshire Chamber Music Festival for broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

Student life[edit]

According to the University, more than a 100 different nationalities are represented among the student population on the Brayford Pool campus.[64] Based on the available 2014/15 academic year data, the total student population was 11,085 undergraduates and 2,180 postgraduates.[5]

University of Lincoln Students' Union[edit]

The University of Lincoln Students' Union, dates back to the formation of the University. In 2007, the Students' Union was reconstituted as a company limited by guarantee, and registered as a charity, introducing a more conventional governance structure for students' unions.

The Students’ Union supports and represents the students of the University of Lincoln, sabbatical officers are elected by the student body and supported by the staff expertise to deliver services and represent student needs to enhance the experience of all students at the University of Lincoln. A number of sports teams operate in the national BUCS' leagues competing nationally against other institutions.

The Student's Union were awarded NUS (National Union of Students) Higher Education Students' Union of the Year 2014/15 at the annual awards ceremony.

In 2014, ownership of the on campus pub 'The Shed' was transferred to the Students' Union following the acquisition by the University from Greene King, this was later renamed to The Swan. Later this year, the operation of The Engine Shed was transferred to the Students' Union.

Student accommodation[edit]

In Lincoln, there are many accommodation options for students. The University owns and operates "The Student Village", a waterfront complex situated on the Brayford campus. There are 17 blocks of self-catering apartments, each apartment housing five to eight students. Some apartments have specifically designed rooms for students with disabilities. The site has a range of facilities with a total of 1,037 bedrooms available. In 2005, The Student Village was leased to a charitable trust for a premium of £30 million.

Further to this, there is a range of other University owned and private off campus student accommodation in Lincoln.

Governance[edit]

Vice Chancellor[edit]

The founding Vice Chancellor of the University in Lincoln was Professor Roger King. Professor David Chiddick was Vice Chancellor when the university was renamed to the University of Lincoln. Chiddick's name is reflected in the David Chiddick Building, housing the schools of Business and Law.

The current Vice Chancellor is Professor Mary Stuart who was appointed in 2009 following Chiddick's retirement. Stuart is a graduate of the University of Cape Town and the Open University where she obtained her Doctorate in Social Policy in 1998. Her research interests are focused on life histories, social mobility, higher education students and community development.[65]

The Vice Chancellor is supported by three Deputy Vice Chancellors, Professor Scott Davidson, Professor Ieuan Owen and Professor Susan Rigby.[66]

Chancellor[edit]

The university's second Chancellor since the university's title change in 2001, Victor Adebowale, Baron Adebowale, was installed in 2008. Previous chancellors have included Harry Hooper CBE and Dame Elizabeth Esteve-Coll.[67]

Identity[edit]

The University of Lincoln's official logo from 2001 to 2012 was the head of Minerva, the Ancient Roman goddess of wisdom and knowledge. From July 2012 the logo was changed to incorporate the university's coat of arms,[68][69] which features swans, fleur de lys and books.
