Students move into St Mark's accommodation next week after Wifi delay
Around 40 students who were unable to move into the newly built halls of residence in St Mark's Street could move in next week.
The students were forced to find alternative accommodation after being unable to move into newly built flats in Lincoln city centre.
But the building, next to the RSPCA charity shop, was not ready on time.
A spokesperson for the Pickstock Group said: “JR. Pickstock Ltd are pleased to confirm that the building was signed off with all works completed on time and to contract ready for service providers to follow through with their work of installing WiFi connection."

While the complex was signed off by building contractors The Pickstock Group on Friday, September 20, the University says it does not have an internet connection yet.
As a result, the students have been moved into a different halls of residence near to the university’s campus.
A University of Lincoln spokesperson said: “While a broadband service is installed within the new student accommodation on St Mark’s Street, some students have moved into alternative accommodation at one of our nearby Partnership Halls.
“The students will have the option to move back into St Mark’s when the broadband installation is complete, and the University will support those who opt to move.”
