2016

"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."
