We’re very proud of our campus. We’ve been here in the heart of uphill Lincoln for a very long time and, over the years, have made many improvements to ensure it is a pleasant and comfortable place to study, work and live. Many of the original Victorian buildings are still in daily use but they have been extensively renovated and refurbished.
Today the attractive I8-acre campus houses many modern developments, including purpose-built learning and teaching accommodation in the Robert Hardy Building, as well as dedicated facilities for Drama, Humanities and Social Sciences, and History. Across campus, there have been many other developments taking place, such as the expansion and modernisation of the Cornerstone Library, the addition of two unique eateries, Curiositea and Refectory, each serving a range of drinks and snacks throughout the day and a newly built en-suite residence block, Wickham Hall.
BGU offers its students the use of modern up to-date learning resources including a very pro-active Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). You will receive excellent support from our teams of friendly and professional tutors. Studying at BGU allows you to enhance the learning and skills you will use in your future career.

Curiositea is Lincoln’s quirkiest coffee shop.
