Welcome Headliners

Sing your own song

Music at NTU

Lover of live music? Maybe you already play an instrument or want to pick up something new? Whether you’re looking for the buzz of a live show or to create your own music, it’s all here

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

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…
