Winter Welcome 2022

Winter Welcome 2022

A warm winter welcome to all our students

There are lots of events on offer during your first few weeks to help welcome you to Nottingham Trent University (NTU), the Nottingham Trent Students’ Union (NTSU) and the city itself.

You’ll have access to city tours, free lunches and activities at the Students’ Union taking place from 10 January - 11 February 2022. These are all a great opportunity to get to know your new surroundings, meet other new students and to start making lasting friendships.
