Tours start from Tuesday 10 August will run every 30 minutes starting from 10 am, with the last tour leaving at 3 pm.

The tours will take approximately 45 minutes and there will be an opportunity to ask a student ambassador questions throughout. To ensure the safety of all visitors, bookings are limited to a maximum of eight visitors per tour with a recommended limit of two tickets per family.

Getting to our campuses

Follow campus tour signage at each campus and look out for staff and students in pink who will greet you at the meeting point.

City Campus

If you’re travelling to Nottingham by car, we recommend you use the city's park and ride services, as parking in the centre can quickly become expensive and there is no on-campus parking provision. We recommend that you use one of the following sites and board any tram serving Toton Lane or Clifton South:

  • The Forest (NG7 6AQ) – journey time: approximately 5 minutes to the Nottingham Trent University stop
  • Wilkinson Street (NG7 7NW) – journey time: approximately 10 minutes to the Nottingham Trent University stop
  • Phoenix Park (NG8 6AS) – journey time: approximately 20 minutes to the Nottingham Trent University stop.

Make sure you buy a ticket before you board the tram and alight at the Nottingham Trent University stop. It is now mandatory to wear a face covering on public transport. Visit the Nottingham Express Transit (NET) website for more information on the city’s Park and Ride services.

Visit the Nottingham City Council website for more information on parking in Nottingham city centre.

If you’re planning on travelling by train, timetable information is available from National Rail. Nottingham Station is a short walk from the city centre but our City Campus can also be reached by tram – follow the signs from your platform, and head north on the Phoenix Park or Hucknall lines.

Clifton Campus

The postcode for our Clifton Campus is NG11 8NS and parking is available on-site. Please enter through the main entrance (North Gate), where you’ll find the visitor car park to the right after the entry barrier.

Brackenhurst Campus

Brackenhurst is located roughly 14 miles north-east of Nottingham city centre and the postcode is NG25 0QF. There are plenty of parking spaces available on-site outside the Bramley building.

Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies

Visit the Confetti website for directions and parking information.

Any questions about our campus tours?

How many places can I book?

You can book a maximum of two tickets per tour in one transaction if enough spaces are available on your chosen tour. Additional guests without a booking will not be permitted to join a tour.

To ensure the safety of all visitors, bookings are limited to a maximum of eight visitors per tour with a recommended limit of two tickets per family.

There isn't any availability on the day we would like to attend. What can we do?

If your son or daughter already has a space on the campus tour, you could:

  • book onto a later campus tour on the same day.
  • follow our self-guided audio tour to view the campus independently, either with your son or daughter, or while they are on their pre-booked campus tour.
  • try to find another day where more slots are available.

If you can’t find a suitable time and date, the self-guided audio tour allows you to explore our campuses independently at any time.

How do I cancel or move my booking?

You can cancel your booking on Eventbrite. Bookings cannot be moved, instead please book a new slot for the day you would like to attend and cancel your old booking.
