Lincoln students must wear gowns to all formals. Sub Fusc is required for Great Hall.

The chefs happily cater to the dietary requirements of students: this includes, but is not limited to, those who are vegetarian or vegan, have allergies, or who cannot eat certain foods for religious reasons. If you require a special meal, sign up before 10am (or 10am Friday for weekend meals).

All students pay a non-refundable catering charge (usually around £200/term) which provides credit towards meals in Hall and Deep Hall.

Meal Booking

You need to book for all formal halls and events and on some special occasions, you may also need to book for first hall. If you have a specific dietary requirement other than vegetarian (eg Vegan or specific allergies) you can sign up to ensure the kitchen has prepared a special meal for you.
