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 NTU accommodation

  • We’ll send your key information by email, in early September - which will explain exactly what to do, and when. Make sure your contact details are correct and up-to-date!
  • If you are joining us in January then keep an eye out for this information in December.
  • We’ll confirm your arrival dates and times on our Accommodation Welcome website. The site also includes useful information on living in student accommodation. Depending on which residence you’ve booked, you may also be given a parking time slot and travel information.
  • Once you’ve moved in and met your new flatmates, go and complete your enrolment. And don't forget your Fresher's Wristband!

Visit our living away from home section for some top tips on settling in to university life.

Kitting out your new home

If you’re staying in NTU accommodation, you'll need to bring your own bedding and cooking utensils (plates, bowls, cutlery, pans, can openers etc.). You can buy bed and kitchen packs from us, which include everything you’ll need.

If you're not living in NTU accommodation, make sure you’ve checked ahead of time to see what’s provided.

And most importantly, make sure you bring things to make your room feel like home!

Get insured

Be proactive, and don’t wait until it’s too late – ensure that your valuables are protected before you arrive here. Just remember that:

  • if you’re living in UPP, Brackenhurst, Waverley Street or College Drive accommodation, a basic insurance cover package is included. Visit the Endsleigh website for more information.
  • if you’re living in private accommodation, you’ll need to arrange your own insurance cover.

Get to know your neighbours

Every year, NTU sets 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.

Join the networks, and get involved!
