Nottingham itself has everything a university city requires – an award-winning nightlife, culture and sports - and what's more, it's extremely budget-friendly. It’s a welcoming city and we know you’ll make friends for life here.
It's also a great place to explore the rest of the UK and further. You are less than 2 hours from many of the UK’s major cities including London, Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds. With an airport just outside the city you can easily travel into Europe too.
