About Bishop Grosseteste University

BGU is a unique place, where you'll form friendships and have experiences that will shape the rest of your life a fact to which our students will attest.

We're set within a single-site campus, so just about everything you need is within easy reach. Everything is close by, whether it be your tutors, your friends, your lectures or the places in which you like to relax.

We've been here in the historic heart of Lincoln for over 150 years, a beautifully green and pleasant campus often ablaze with colour and pulsating to the rhythm of our samba band, just a few minutes' walk from Lincoln Cathedral, castle and the old Roman city. We're very proud of our leafy green eighteen-acre campus. It's on a single site, a 10 minute walk from the centre of uphill Lincoln and the Cathedral, and a further 15 minutes from the main shopping area of Lincoln.

In the past year or so we've made lots of changes around our campus to provide some excellent new facilities. Prime amongst these is the upgrading of our new accommodation during 2013, which included a brand new en-suite accommodation block. We've also built a new restaurant, Refectory, to complement our Alice in Wonderland inspired coffee shop Curiositea and The Venue, our new on-campus cinema.

We've seen a lot of things come and go in that time, but we've never stopped providing first-class education, turning out graduates of the highest calibre who go out into the world and change people's lives for the better. As a BGU student we'll support you, we'll challenge you, we'll make you feel at home. That's what we do. It's what we've always done.
