Lincoln college was founded by the bishop of Lincoln in 1427 and is located in the heart of Oxford city. The library is inside an old church and is an experience to visit.

Lincoln College, approaching its 600th anniversary, is an architectural gem. The lawns alone are worthy of a special visit. New construction has been blended beautifully with medieval buildings. All of this aside from the ongoing academic strength of the Lincoln College community.

It's one of the smallest colleges in Oxford, but the atmosphere is great, and the staff is friendly. Would definitely recommend checking out the dining hall and the bar if you could.

This is one of the smaller collages and very central. It is easy to drop in and reflect on the quiet and intimate surroundings. As with all colleges the grounds are well kept with vibrant Virginia Creepers and lush green grass. The college and chapel...More
