Location

Outside of the university grounds, Nottingham is a vibrant city known for its shopping, rich culture and history, nightlife and sport.

A £350 million investment in recent years has led to significant developments in NTU’s estate, including the regeneration of two Grade II* listed buildings, Newton and Arkwright, which include a glazed centre court with walk-round balcony, cafes, deli-bars and student services.

The quadrangle on campus, located next to the building where silicone was invented by Frederick Kipping, provides a quiet space for students to work and relax.
