Lincoln City Student Housing Scheme
Lincoln City Student Housing Scheme is a means of securing safe, clean and well managed accommodation for students living in Lincoln.
This scheme is the result of partnership and co-operation between Bishop Grosseteste University, City of Lincoln Council, Lincolnshire County Council, Trading standards, Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, Lincolnshire Police and the University of Lincoln.
The scheme’s aims are to produce an accreditation scheme and code of practice for landlords, quality assurance for colleges and safer accommodation for students.
How it works in simple terms
The member colleges advertise the availability of accommodation and landlords who wish to make their accommodation available to students through these institutes of higher education must agree to comply with the code of practice. The code of practice specifies physical standards for the property, and service standards for management.
Compliance with the code will mean a high standard of repair, safety and amenity has been achieved and a high level of housing management is maintained.
Promotion of accredited property
Once accepted on to the scheme property details will be advertised within the universities and via the internet and display notices, confirming that the landlord has agreed to the terms of the accreditation scheme, will be produced for display.
