"I think the social environment is really easy to get involved in as most of the time you'll come across welcoming and friendly people/members of the public. There's loads of sports clubs to join and be really serious in, some even offer scholarships. There's a wide range of societies in university, literally anything you're interested in, you're likely to find a society that fits you. Life at my university is quite fun and active, there's always something to do."
"There are many sports clubs, and those that can't be filled by NTU are shared with the other Nottingham university. Sports clubs have a regular night out every Wednesday and have amazing nightlife. This is as well as being dedicated sportsmen and women competing both nationally and internationally. Ice hockey varsity is a huge thing, where Trent competes with UoN every year."
"The university has several sports teams and great facilities for football, futsal, rugby, cycling etc."
"The students' union building has a climbing wall for people to use whenever they want."
"It's really good, lots to do and lots to join. Very diverse assortment of events on, sports clubs and societies are vast."
"Variety of sports societies as well as other societies such as debating and mooting."
"The sports clubs are expensive. You need to set aside a good amount of money to be in a university sports group."
"Social life is brilliant, there are plenty of sports clubs that are well run and compete at a high standard."
"Nottingham is definitely one of the best student cities in the UK, and Trent takes full advantage of that by having loads of affiliated club nights just for our students. There are dozens of sports clubs, most of which have both teams for great athletes as well as space for beginners and those who only want to play socially. There's also a club night just for sports clubs and societies, complete with a bar crawl and fancy dress. It's the best night of the week."
"Lots of sports clubs and societies, there will be something for all personalities and interests."
