Lincoln University does not have a dormitory for students. Many students share apartments with other students or live with their relatives or family friends. Rent for a shared apartment ranges from about $400 to $700 per person and per month, and for single housing from about $600 to $1,000 per month. Housing for a student with a spouse and children may cost more than $1,000 per month.

Student Services Office advises and helps students to find appropriate housing. The Director of Student Services posts notices of current rentals and refers students to various sources of temporary housing until students find suitable accommodations. Students find housing by checking the listings posted on bulletin boards at Lincoln University or by utilizing websites and rental agencies. Most related room sharing and roommate finder resources can be obtained from student services.
