Every year around 600 students enjoy the experience of living on campus alongside students from around New Zealand and overseas, most of them making friends for life. First-year students reside in the catered halls and enjoy a buffet breakfast, lunch and home-cooked dinner daily in Te Kete Ika's dining hall.
Lincoln has six halls of residence and two sets of self-catered units on the Te Waihora campus, all within a five minute walk of each other and our facilities.
Centennial Hall opened in 1978, the year of Lincoln’s centenary. The double- story building is a two minute walk from the dining hall and the heart of the campus. The 112-single rooms are spread over the two floors and are laid out in pods of six. Each pod includes a kitchen, one unisex toilet and two showers. There is also a single communal lounge and laundry on the ground floor. One of the ground floor pods provides disabled access and bathroom facilities.
Made up of three four-storey blocks, Colombo Hall was built in 1970 and houses 80- students. The rooms are laid out in pods of four, and each pod has a shower and toilet. The hall has two communal lounges and a kitchen situated on the ground floor.
Hudson is the University’s oldest hall, opening in 1953. Since 2002, the hall has housed students in just its West Wing, with the rest of the building used for the Health Centre and other services. The hall is spread over three floors, with 25 bedrooms off a central corridor on each floor.
Lowrie Hall is located next to Colombo Hall and was opened in 1970 and is home to 82 students. Like Colombo it is made up of three four-storey blocks with the same pod formation of four. Each pod has a shower and toilet, while the communal lounges and a kitchen for the hall are situated on the ground floor.
Southland Hall, originally New Hall, was opened in 1993. A short walk from the centre of the campus, it’s 48 residents live in two blocks, and rooms are laid out in pods of six. Each pod has a kitchenette, toilet and two showers. A communal lounge is in a separate building.
Stevens Hall is made up of two three-storey blocks and, like Colombo and Lowrie, the 50 student rooms are laid out in pods of six. Each pod has a kitchenette, toilet and shower. The communal lounge is located in a separate building adjacent to the hall.
Lincoln has a great brochure here which talks all about accommodation, which is fully catered, costs and how to apply for a place in a hall.
