Size isn’t everything

Small & Friendly events

Ready for some calm time? At these events you can make new friends in quieter environments and smaller groups. All of the fun, none of the fuss

Hi Society!

Society events

Getting involved with a student-led Society could be one of the most fun and rewarding things you’ll do at NTU. With such a lot going on and so many choose from, this is the place to start your journey

Getting out there

Walks, tours and trips

Our goal is to help you get settled in by showing you the secrets of your campus and the quirks, curiosities and sights of one of Britain’s great student cities. Part of Nottingham’s charm is that it’s really not that big (as cities go), but these tours will reveal some true hidden gems

Join the club!

Freshers’ Fairs

NTSU’s Freshers’ Fairs are a showcase for everything student life has to offer — from societies, sports clubs and events to the Union’s jobs, representation projects and personal development opportunities. You’ll find everything under one roof, plus some great freebies and excellent student discounts

Don’t you forget about…

Breakfast Club

Unsure where to start? Start here! The perfect opportunity to meet other students in the same situation as you, whether that’s someone to go to events with or just chat to. We’re offering a free hot drink and breakfast sandwich plus friendly faces, chat and advice to help get you going

Welcome to Nottingham
