Lincoln University


Lincoln University is New Zealand’s specialist land-based university. As a publicly owned and operated university that exists and operates under New Zealand statute, we are 100% committed to transforming land, people and economies. Arguably no other New Zealand university has had such a direct link with the New Zealand economy, and with the people responsible for fuelling the economy for much of that time, than us.

Lincoln is New Zealand’s third oldest university. Founded in 1878 as a School of Agriculture, the organization was linked to Canterbury College, welcoming its first intake of students in 1880.
