"The campus is very nice and is located only 20 minutes from the centre of the city. Due to it being a campus university, the facilities are very good and each campus has a gym and sports centre. There's plenty of food available from shops and cafés and there's also a lake and art gallery on site."
"University campuses are well-connected to the city centre via city transport buses and there's a free hopper service from campus to campus. Accommodations are located 10-15 minutes away from campuses. It's a beautiful green campus with aesthetically special buildings around. There's a great nightlife in the city with common rooms and places to hang out around the campus. We have 24/7 libraries and a happening night life around the city centre."
"The gym is stunning but very expensive. I think it's a bit unfair that it's so much more expensive than other gyms in the area, you shouldn't price out students on their own campus. There are lots of nice study areas and the lovely new coffee shop in the Portland building is great. The nightlife is excellent. Nottingham is small for a uni city but it makes for a friendly atmosphere. I'm staying after graduation."
"It's a great location that's only 10-15 minutes from town. We have a big campus with lots of green spaces and great facilities including a massive new sports centre that's just been built, food hall, cafés and shops. The student accommodation is good and I would recommend staying in self-catered halls over catered halls."
"The sports facilities are good and there is a nice lake on campus as well as lots of places for food. However, I think the accommodation and the way halls are organised is unfortunate. I think my accommodation made my first year much harder than it needed to be."
"It's a good location and only a bus ride to the city centre. The campus is gorgeous but there is a fair amount of walking sometimes. The accommodation is all of a high standard and caters to a range of price brackets."


"It's a beautiful campus and, being from London, I wanted a good and lively city, which Nottingham is. First-year accommodation was surprisingly nice and the second-year housing in Lenton is great."
"It's very accessible from the student neighbourhoods but getting from one place to another on campus can take a long time. Facilities are generally great and accommodation varies from excellent to poor depending on where you get placed."
"The campuses are lovely, with the uni park being pretty green. The town is great and offers enough to keep even Londoners entertained."
"Nottingham is great with lots of shops and facilities. It's a big but easy-to-navigate city with great transport links. The tram is excellent and the campus is one of the best in the country, being very beautiful."
"Nottingham is a very student-friendly and affordable city with a lot to offer (especially in terms of alternative music) but it retains a cosier side that makes it easy to adapt to. The university's facilities are top notch, with innovative and aesthetic architecture. The accommodation is both affordable and easy to find, with a big market for students in certain areas."
"The campus is located quite far from the city centre but there is an appropriate and reasonably priced bus service available. The campus is scenic and safe and I have particularly enjoyed living in halls as it has given me the opportunity to meet many new people. The facilities provided are slightly basic but definitely sufficient."
"It's a fantastic location that's close to one of the best city centres in England. Accommodation for first-years is on campus and close by. For second and third-years, it's in between uni and the city, which is perfect."
"I love the fact that it's a campus university so most of the services are only a few minutes away. They're very clean and green campuses. Support is always available for computers and IT, as well as numerous libraries. I'm very satisfied with my accommodation and had a spacious room."
"The University of Nottingham has six campuses in the city of Nottingham itself. All the campuses are located not too far from the city centre and are within walking distance. However, the hopper bus service makes it easier for students and staff to travel from one campus to another. All student accommodation is within the main campuses and next to facilities such as the student union shop, gym and libraries etc."
"The main campus (University Park) is in Nottingham. The coach and train stations are 30 minutes away but there are no big supermarkets nearby. The student halls on campus are expensive to live in and they're all catered."
