Lincoln College, located on Turl Street, has about 260 undergraduates, and 180 graduates. Notable features include the library, which is a deconsecrated church (also popular with campanologists), the chapel with its rosewood screen, and the Wesley Room, preserved as it was when used by [John Wesley]?, founder of the Methodist church.

Other famous alumni include Lord Florey and Sir Edward Abraham, both in pioneering work on the therapeutic properties of penicillin; novelist John Le Carré and Dr Seuss, children's author and illustrator.

Lincoln owns all the buildings on Turl Street from Market Street on down, allowing it to provide accommodation for all its undergraduates in Lincoln House and above the geometry-defying rabbit warren that is The Mitre. Lincoln also owns accommodation in [Bear Lane]? (mostly for graduates), [Museum Road]?, [Ship Street]? and High Street.

Lincoln has a choir, which performs often, and has recorded a number of CDs.

No article on Lincoln College should fail to mention the hall food, which is considered to be among the best in Oxford. The bar, known as Deep Hall due to its cellar location underneath the main hall, is pleasant and has a Hobgoblin ale on tap quite often.
