You will find everything you need to get to Clifton Campus for your Graduation.

Getting to and around NTU's Clifton Campus

Wherever possible we’re encouraging graduands and their guests to travel to the Clifton Campus via public transport. Our Clifton Campus has good links to both tram and bus services from the city centre and from the nearby Park and Ride site.

Visitors with access requirements are encouraged to contact with specific parking needs.

Park and Ride

Clifton’s Park and Ride service is located close to Junction 24 of the M1 and offers over 1000 parking spaces. The nearest stop to the Clifton Campus is Rivergreen on the Clifton South line. The Campus is a 10 minute walk from the Rivergreen stop.

Please visit the NET website for tram ticket information.

National train and coach services

If you’re planning on coming by train, timetable information is available from National Rail. Nottingham Train Station is located approximately four miles from our Clifton Campus.

The National Express coach services arrive and depart from Station Street, just outside Nottingham Train Station.

Travelling to the Clifton Campus from Nottingham City Centre

From Nottingham Train Station you can catch the Clifton South line tram. The nearest stop to the Clifton Campus is Rivergreen, which is a 10 minute walk from Campus. You can also catch the Go2 Uni 4 bus from just outside the station which brings you direct to the Clifton Campus.


East Midlands Airport is approximately 10 miles from Nottingham Clifton Campus, and it takes about 18 minutes by car. We do however advise travelling by air the day before your graduation ceremony, to minimise the chance of any disruption which may prevent you attending your ceremony.

You can get a taxi from East Midlands airport to Clifton Campus.

The airport is served by the Skylink bus service that runs up to every 20 minutes during the day and hourly at night, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Skylink bus stops in Nottingham city centre, where you can then get a tram to the Rivergreen tram stop. Tickets cost £5.30 for a single.

Other airports that you can fly into include Heathrow, Birmingham, Manchester, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted. If you fly into any of these you will need to plan your journey from those cities to Nottingham.

Parking at Clifton Campus

As there is limited parking available, and as Government COVID-19 restrictions on large events are subject to change, we ask that graduands and their two guests arrive together in one car, or use public transport wherever possible.

Further information about travel and parking arrangements will be revealed nearer to the time. Please continue to check this page and your emails for more updates.
