Getting around

With a compact city centre, a handy tram system and an award-winning bus network, Nottingham is an easy city to navigate. Here's everything you need to know about getting around the city.

Travelling by bike

The cheapest (not to mention healthiest) way to get around is, of course, by bike. There are plenty of cycle routes and quiet roads across the city that make cycling to-and-from one of our campus locations safe and simple.

NTU’s pioneering Bike Factory initiative works in collaboration with a range of local and national transport organisations to provide a bike hire scheme to staff and students.  Offering highly competitive hire rates, secure compounds for cycle storage, and changing rooms and locker facilities, the Bike Factory provides the perfect solution if you’re looking for an environmentally friendly approach to commuting.

Travelling by tram

Nottingham tram network serves the city centre and many of the outlying suburbs and villages. You'll find stops in key locations around the city, including right outside our City Campus and just a short walk from our Clifton Campus.

Tickets are usually £2.20 for a single trip, but you can sign up for a tram2work ticket, which works alongside businesses and local employers across Nottingham to provide the best price on tram travel. As of November 2018, an annual tram2work season ticket costs £425 or just over £35 a month.


Travelling by bus

Nottingham has an extensive bus network, with fast and regular services throughout the city and beyond. Nottingham City Transport has a comprehensive website to help you plan your journey.

Journeys cost £2 each way or £3.70 for an all-day ticket between the city centre and our Clifton Campus. Travel between our Brackenhurst Campus and the city centre costs £4.15, or £6.00 for a return.
