City Campus

Transport and parking information for travelling to our City Campus by bus, bike and car.

The City Campus postcode is NG1 4BU.

By car

Parking in Nottingham City Centre is very limited.  It is recommended that students travelling by car use park and ride services together with the discounted ticket options provided by Nottingham City Transport and NET If you live outside of Nottingham city centre and plan to travel to the City Campus by car, we recommend using the city’s Park and Ride services, as parking in the city centre can quickly become expensive.

We recommend that you use one of the following Park and Ride sites:

Blue badge holders

There are accessible parking spaces available to blue badge holders on the City Campus. All of our accessible parking spaces can be found on our City Campus map.

Please contact the car parking team to request accessible parking access for all campuses to be added to your student card.

By train

If you’re planning on coming by train, you can get timetable information from National Rail. Nottingham Railway Station is a 20 minute walk from the City Campus, or you can hop on a tram going to Hucknall or Toton, which will bring you to the Nottingham Trent University stop.

By tram

The City Campus is also easily accessible by tram. We have our own tram stop right at the centre of the site. The stop is called 'Nottingham Trent University'. Find more information on discounted travel options for students on the Nottingham Express Transit (NET) website.

You must buy your tickets before you travel. Regular checks do take place. Anyone caught without a valid ticket or smartcard will be liable for a £50 fine.

You can use the new NETGO app to make purchasing tram tickets quicker, easier and cheaper.

By bike

The Ucycle student bike hire scheme is a great way for students to get around the University Campus. We have over 200 bikes available to hire for £49 a year, secure compounds for cycle parking at each campus, and support from the City Campus based workshop, where expert mechanics and advice is available.

  • cycle maps of Nottingham

By foot

Walking or running is one of the best ways to stay healthy whilst travelling to campus. NTU has created a traffic free heart of campus at the three main campuses and works with the local authorities to continually improve public facilities. Information on local walks from campus, mostly in green spaces, can be found on the sustainability web pages, which can improve the health and wellbeing of students.
