NTU and Nottingham Trent Students’ Union (NTSU) believe that the safe and positive environment of our University is crucial in helping our students to thrive.
NTU has a dedicated Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) team who support staff and students to help create a culture of engagement underpinned by respect.

Creating a safe and inclusive university
Here are just a few of our key initiatives working towards a safe and inclusive university environment.
Respect at NTU
Studying here means being part of an inclusive and respectful community characterised by fairness, equality of opportunity, and the valuing of diversity. We have very clear expectations around how all members of our community treat – and are treated by – others. The Respect at NTU video below is a great introduction to our ethos.
Safe Place is a calm and quiet area on our City, Clifton and Brackenhurst Campuses for students who need help, care, guidance, or just some breathing space. It’s open from 9 pm to 9 am and is staffed by our own Security team and wardens.
Whatever’s troubling you, this space is for you – including if you are out in Nottingham and you’re waiting for a friend or taxi, you want to make a call, or you want to leave a situation if you feel uncomfortable or at risk.
Peer Support Scheme
NTSU runs a free and confidential peer support scheme which connects students with similar experiences, problems, or conditions to offer each other help, guidance and support.
Support wherever you need it
We’re committed to getting you the right help from the right people, and ensuring that all of our students have the same opportunities to succeed.
Faith and chaplaincy
NTU Faith and Chaplaincy provide activities and initiatives that are open to people of all faiths and those without a faith at all.
