The heart of student life
NTU is a place for open minds and new adventures — whatever you’re interested in, we’ve got you covered. Nottingham Trent Students' Union (NTSU) will be a huge and defining part of your university experience. With its exciting entertainment, sports, social and leisure spaces, and societies, it's the heart of student life.
Here’s just a taste of the opportunities outside of your studies.
Over 60 sports clubs
Whether you’re a beginner, an elite athlete or somewhere in the middle, there’s a sports club here for everyone. We’ve got a fantastic range of facilities including gyms, studios for fitness classes, courts, pitches and climbing walls. High-performing student athletes can also apply for an undergraduate sport scholarship.
Over 120 societies
From Bollywood dance to gaming, there are plenty of societies at NTU to suit all manner of tastes and interests. This is a great way to make new friends with similar interests, or to try something totally new.
Culture at NTU
Curated & Created is our unique cultural programme. Explore books and writing, take in exhibitions, talks, workshops, screenings, live music and comedy performances.
