Busy places, peaceful spaces – a greener place to learn

NTU is one of the UK’s most environmentally friendly universities – our commitment to creating a sustainable campus shines through in our recent transformations. In fact, our brand new Pavilion building generates more energy than it consumes.

We’re big on green grass and big, open spaces – in the midst of an essay, there are plenty of places to reconnect with the outside world. Take a breather and gather your thoughts in our brand new Plaza and Green Zone.

Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Engagement Centre (ISTEC)

£20 million transformation

We’ve built a forward-thinking campus, with your future in mind. Just look at our £11m ISTeC Centre and state-of-the-art laboratories, where you'll turn big ideas into world-changing research.

Student life is about so much more than lectures. We know your campus will be the centre of your world, so make yourself at home in our new and improved accommodation, social hub The Point, world-class sports centre and stunning Pavilion.

Get connected

During term time, the award-winning Go2 Uni 4 bus service runs from City Campus to Clifton Campus (and vice versa) every eight minutes. Nottingham’s excellent tram service has been extended into Clifton too, giving you a direct link to the train station. It’s also opened up some of the city’s hidden treasures – there’s shops, pubs and restaurants galore to explore, just beyond Nottingham’s centre.
