Your new home
From the moment you arrive at Nottingham Trent University (NTU), to your first few weeks settling in, there’s plenty to consider. Some of these little details might not seem too exciting, but they’re important. So make sure you’ve got everything covered, and keep the surprises to a minimum.
Moving into your new home
If you're moving into NTU accommodation, you’ll be sent a link to our Accommodation Welcome website in early September.
This contains your arrival dates and times, as well as useful information about living in student accommodation. Depending on which residence you’ve booked, you may also be given an arrival time slot and travel information.
You’ll be able to move in on either Friday 21 September or Saturday 22 September. If you are on a 51-week license agreement, you can move in from Saturday 8 September. There are welcome events planned for Sunday 23 September.
If you're joining us in January, keep an eye out for this information in December.
Once you’ve moved in and met your new flatmates, go and complete your enrolment – don't forget to collect your Fresher's wristband!
Kit out your new home
If you’re staying in NTU accommodation, you’ll need to bring bedding and bits and pieces for the kitchen, such as bowls, cutlery, pans, can openers etc. If you’re living somewhere else, check what’s provided. Make sure you bring things to make your room feel like home too.
We've partnered with UniKitOut who provide bespoke student packages from kitchen to bedding packs and all the extras you might need for your new home at discounted rates. You can even get your pack delivered to your new accommodation so it's waiting for you on your arrival.

We strongly recommend that you take out insurance to cover your belongings in case they get broken or stolen. If you’re living in University accommodation, basic insurance cover will be included. If you’re in private accommodation, you’ll need to arrange your own cover
Get to know your neighbours
Every year, we set up official accommodation social media pages – they’re a great way to get to know your new flatmates and neighbours before you’ve even arrived.
We want all our students to get the most out of their time with us. To help us do this, we have lots of support and measures in place – one being our Student Code of Behaviour – as well as our Student Charter. Respecting others is an integral part of being an NTU student and our Student Code of Behaviour will give you an insight into the ways we ensure all our students’ understand the University's expectations.
