City Campus

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

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.

The City Campus postcode is NG1 4BU.

By car

Parking in Nottingham city centre is very limited. 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:

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.

By bus

Nottingham City Transport (NCT) offer frequent routes across Nottingham, with buses running to all our campuses. Visit the NCT website for to access the NCT Journey Planner and for more information on discounted travel options for students – and activate your NTU Student Card for a 15% monthly discount on bus travel.

Student Mango Card provides savings on single travel fares and can be used on most Trent Barton buses, as well as the tram. Visit the Trent Barton website for more information on routes and fares.

The Robin Hood Network makes travelling across Nottingham’s bus, tram and train networks easy – and they offer discounted travel cards for students too.

If you’re studying at Clifton or Brackenhurst, you may also choose to live in the city centre. The Go2 Uni 4 bus runs every seven minutes to Clifton, and there is a regular bus service to Brackenhurst.

By bike

The Ucycle student bike hire scheme is a great way for students to get around the University Campus. Different sized bikes are available to hire for the academic year. The cost only £49 (plus a £60 refundable deposit).

Visit the Ucycle webpage for more. You'll find:

  • cycle maps of Nottingham
  • details of our shower and cycle compound facilities
