Ten days. Hundreds of events. One unforgettable adventure.
Friday 17 – Sunday 26 September 2021
Personalise your Welcome
Learn on your feet
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.
NTSU 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.
Eat Global. Dine Local.
Nottingham Street Food Club
Mark the final weekend of Welcome 2021 with an exclusive NTU collaboration with the legendary Nottingham Street Food Club. Set in the quirky avenues of Sneinton Market, the heart of the city’s creative quarter, join us to wind down with the very best of Nottingham’s independent street food traders. Booking now open!

There are so many events and activities to choose from and we’re adding new ones all the time, so keep checking back to take a look at what’s on offer for your Welcome 2021. Just be sure that the events you sign up for fit around your course induction timetable and you’ll be good to go!
Welcome to Nottingham

You’ll find it all here. Nottingham is a place where big-city life meets a relaxed vibe, and huge chains rub shoulders with thriving independents. From peaceful parks to booming nights, Nottingham’s streets and people will always urge you to try something new.
