Tim also manages the reception services, print shop and the University’s switchboard. He has been in his current role for 9 years and has worked at NTU in excess of 23 years in various accommodation related roles.

In 2016, the University launched its own student letting agent ‘Trent Lets’; this aims to offer students good quality accredited off-street housing from reputable landlords and to raise the standards of student accommodation across the city.
