"The location is great, it's right in the middle of the city centre with everything in walking distance! The gym is great but can be very busy. The student accommodation is great depending on where you live but is very affordable as it's up north."
"Our uni is close to the city centre. The facilities are good and modernisation often takes place."
"The location is right in the centre of Nottingham, it couldn't be easier to get to by bus or tram. Our facilities are wonderful, the library is excellent and they keep improving and adding new computers around the campus. There's a wide variety of accommodation for everyone's budgets and needs. The campus has loads of food outlets and it's also very easy to pop out to the town centre for a quick lunch or to go shopping with friends."
"The location is brilliant as it's five minutes from the heart of Nottingham but is just far enough away that you don't get that busy city noise or hustle and bustle. Our accommodation is top notch with all bar one of the seven halls having en-suite bathrooms, which is very rare at universities. The facilities are extremely modern and stylish but also extremely practical and functional, offering great individual, group and private study spaces."
"The university is located in the centre of Nottingham and the campus has great facilities and accommodation. There is lots do in the city including shopping, escape rooms, watching sport, visiting the castle and going to the cinema."
"All of the student accommodation is expensive, you have to go far out of the city centre for cheap accommodation, which is very bad compared to a lot of unis. The location of the uni is perfect and right in the city centre so it's easy to grab coffee or go shopping in between lectures with friends. Nottingham always has lots to do with lots of fairs and events in the market square. It has lovely bars and an amazing range of shops. It's quite a compact city so you never have to walk far."


"Clifton is in the wilderness but it's not as bad as Brackenhurst! The city campus is great if your course is there."
"The city campus is very conveniently located to the city centre and has a lot of easy-to-access facilities. Student accommodation is mostly nearby too. I can't comment on the other two campuses which are further away from the main city."
"I'm at the city campus and it's located in a great place. Very close to bus stops and trams, as well as student accommodation. Also close to shops and the two main shopping centres in Nottingham."
"My campus was Brackenhurst, about 50 minutes outside Nottingham. The campus has a good library and is out in the countryside providing plenty of lovely walks. However, the social life isn't great so I would suggest living in Nottingham and travelling out if that's a priority."
"I'm at Clifton campus, although it is out of the centre it's easy to get to on the bus which is regular and reliable."
"City is really convenient for local amenities and travel as well as exclusive access to Nottingham's nightlife. Library is a good facility but could have more computers and desk space to work at. The gym facilities are good but could be bigger, and having a swimming pool would make the facility fantastic."
"I'm on city campus, which is directly in the city centre. The facilities for my course are brilliant, though we do sometimes struggle to meet demand for computers during busy times. Accommodation here is really nice, but the ones provided by UPP are very expensive."
"University is conveniently located at the heart of the city centre which makes it easy to access. The fact that I stay at the university accommodation, everything seems to be within an arm's reach."
"The city location contains excellent facilities, with a huge and contemporary student union that includes a nightclub, two bars, gym, climbing wall, sports hall, learning areas, and first-class accommodation as well as a Costa. The library is huge and contemporary and the buildings are within walking distance of one another."
"The facilities are great, some campuses and school accommodations away from town have frequent buses going to and from."
