Well more students walk past our front door than any other agency, we’re also very close when students want to pop in to pay rent or alert us to maintenance issues within your property.
2. Run by former students
Student Housing Lincoln was formed in 2014 by former University of Lincoln students; Harry Conti and Marcus Askam Yates, we also employ current students as brand ambassadors, photographers and videographers. We believe we are the only lettings agency tightly integrated within the student community.

We offer all landlords on our Fully Managed Service access to our bespoke online property management system, Landlords can log in via our website and view all details about the student property, you can view things like the AST, Rent Accounts, Full Property profit and Loss, Inspections and how many viewings have been conducted at the property.
4. Account Manager
As an indépendant lettings based in Lincoln we made it our priority to ensure we are passionate and personal with the service you receive, all Managed properties have a dedicated account manager, someone you can call 24/7 with any issues or questions you have about your property, providing a personal service for you and your property.
Having a good reputation is essential to how our business works, in the past we have even banned rouge landlords from contacting us, we only work with the very best landlords and that transfers to our tenants, we are widely renowned as being one of the better lettings agencies and accredited by the University of Lincoln, University of Lincoln Students Union and the City of Lincoln council.
We work hard to make sure we deal with any issues that arise in a timely and efficient manner.
Unlike other Lettings Agents in Lincoln, our fees are fixed, with no additional costs, we don’t hide costs in the small print, and we don’t add ‘professional service fees’ to our services. We also look to save landlords money wherever we can, we can supply (£199.99) RRP Hoover brand Vacuum Cleaners for £49.99, we do not add our costs on top, we simply supply for the paid cost, the idea behind this is that you as a client will appreciate a saving and be inclined to tell others.
Student Lettings require a large amount of leg work, simply listing a property on a website isn’t enough, we have strong partnerships with the Accommodation Office at the University of Lincoln, as well as partnerships with 3rd party listing sites such as www.FreshRent.co.uk, Accommodation For Students, pads4students and many others. We also sponsor university teams and societies.
