Students forced to find alternative accommodation as halls not ready on time
Around 40 students were forced to find alternative accommodation after being unable to move into newly built flats in Lincoln city centre.
New halls of residence in St Mark’s Street should have opened to students at the weekend.
But the building, next to the RSPCA charity shop, was not ready on time.
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.”
A date for the students to move in to the St Mark’s accommodation is yet to be confirmed.
