What students say about Nottingham's...

City Life
Nottingham feels like a community! It's all pedestrianised and has everything you need and want in a compact space.
Anna, Nottingham Trent University graduate
Nightlife
You have clubs that reign supreme such as Ink, Stealth and Forum depending on your taste in music and atmosphere. Rock City is the big music venue.
Second year student at University of Nottingham, 2016
Nightlife
Nottingham centre at night is really safe, well lit and there's loads of taxis. Also, the trams run until around midnight so it's easy to get around. Rock City is brilliant.

What students say about living in Nottingham...

Living Here
I live in Dunkirk. It's near to the uni and has a lot of other students. There aren't many shops nearby and it's a 30 to 40-minute walk to either Beeston or the town centre. There are very good transport links though, including the tram and night buses.
Second year student at University of Nottingham, 2018
Living Here
Lenton is the most popular area for students at the University of Nottingham. It's on the edge of Dunkirk, the second most popular area. Almost all my friends live in Lenton, so it's easier to socialise and there are lots of pubs.
