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.
Visit our living away from home section for some top tips on settling in to university life.
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!
Be proactive, and don’t wait until it’s too late – ensure that your valuables are protected before you arrive here. Just remember that:
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.
