Welcome to Nottingham Trent Students’ Union 


“My involvement with NTSU has been the best, most defining part of my time at university.” – Chelsea Sowden 

Just by enrolling at NTU, you’ll automatically become a member of one of the UK’s best and biggest student unions. 

For Welcome 2020, NTSU has teamed up with some of the greatest venues Nottingham has to offer. From chilled vibes at the Outdoor Cinema to a night-time UV party, the chance to test your knowledge at the Freshers Quiz, and of course our legendary Freshers’ Fairs, we’ve got you covered with a wide range of events and experiences.  

Plus, we have a ton of relaxed events happening every day throughout the week, including BBQs, nature walks, crafts and creative competitions, LGBTQ+ events, and wellbeing activities.  

You can buy tickets for the evening events here. To comply with government guidelines and keep you safe, all of our evening events are seated in groups of six and finish at 10pm.

Societies– the perfect icebreakers 

Whether it’s something you’ve always done or something you’ve always wanted to do, joining a society gives you the chance to pursue your passions and take uni life to the next level.  

NTSU offers membership to over 120 different societies. There’s no hobby too big, and no pastime too niche. Whatever you’re into, we’ve got you covered – whether it’s drama or Disney, anime or animals, film or fashion. If you’re nervous about meeting new people, societies are the perfect icebreaker – a great way to find a community of like-minded friends early on in your uni career.  

Search our Welcome 2020 Society Events for up to date listings, and you can meet the students who run our societies and sign up at our Freshers’ Fairs. But if you can’t wait until then, check out www.trentstudents.org/societies for more details on joining (or even starting) a society.
