Our inclusive community

When you join NTU, you become part of a diverse, inclusive and respectful community. No matter who you are, where you come from or where you want to go, we’ll make sure your voice is heard.

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

Strong community is based on respect for one another, and that's what we expect of everyone for everyone at NTU.

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

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.
