I'm devising a character that uses a jousting lance, but without a horse. Given that the rules for lances state you need to wield them with two hands while unmounted, does that meet the requirement for the Great Weapon Fighting fighting style?

The Great Weapon Fighting fighting style states that:

The weapon must have the two-handed or versatile property for you to gain this benefit.

A lance has the Reach and Special properties (as per the weapons table on page 149 of the PHB) but does not have the Two-handed or Versatile properties so it doesn't not qualify for use with Great Weapon Fighting.
