Venue information


University Hall has stalls and balcony seating. Some of the side stalls seating has interrupted views of the stage. Balcony side seats have a restricted view of the stage and are not cushioned. Please bear this in mind when booking tickets for events where seating is allocated.

Door times

Doors open 30 minutes before performances begin. As there is no foyer area in University Hall, doors to both the building and the auditorium will open at the same time.


There is level access to enter University Hall on Shakespeare Villas, and a lift providing access to all levels of the hall. All stalls seats have level access, requiring no use of steps or slopes. All balcony seats are accessed by at least one step.

Depending on the event, there are up to six spaces for wheelchair users at the front of the stalls, all of which are side-facing to the stage.

We have three accessible toilets on the lower ground, stalls and balcony levels.

If you require a companion to enable your visit, you will receive your second ticket for free.

Getting here

University Hall is just a few minutes' walk from the Nottingham Trent University tram stop, and a short distance from the city centre bus stops. We'd recommend using public transport. If you're planning to drive, or need a walking map, take a look at our parking and travel information.
