Brackenhurst Campus

Transport and parking information for NTU students travelling to our Brackenhurst Campus.

If you're travelling to campus on public transport, please remember to:

  • wear a face covering
  • maintain social distancing
  • avoid travelling at peak times if possible.

By car

The satnav postcode for our Brackenhurst Campus is NG25 0QF. There are plenty of parking spaces available on site for all visitors.

We're providing free parking for all students in who need to come onto our Brackenhurst Campus in Term Three. This is to help our students maintain social distancing and avoid public transport.

Car share

While COVID-19 restrictions are in place, we advise you not to share a car with anyone outside your household or support bubble.

NTU operates a car-sharing scheme especially for students. It's designed to help you reduce your daily travel costs and CO2 emissions at the same time.

It's totally free to use. It enables you to find others going your way, so you can share the journey. You can:

  • take turns driving
  • offer someone a lift in exchange for a contribution to the fuel costs
  • look for someone to give you a lift.

You can access your account online once you've registered. It makes searching as convenient as possible. You can choose to search for matches:

  • among NTU students, or
  • from the whole nationwide Liftshare database.

You don't have to do it every day. It's completely flexible. Once you've found others going your way, you decide among yourselves how often it suits you to share.

Discover for yourself just how much money you can save by car-sharing. Sign up and find a car-share companion or two.
