Campus information

The University is based across three campuses:

City Campus

The City Campus is in the middle of Nottingham city, and is comprised of a collection of new and refurbished historical buildings. The Newton building is one of the tallest structures in Nottingham, the Arkwright building is where DH Lawrence studied to become a teacher and the recently redesigned and expanded Bonington building is a centre for art and design excellence.

Most administrative departments are based here. Schools based at this site are:

  • School of Architecture Design and the Built Environment
  • School of Art and Design
  • Nottingham Business School
  • Nottingham Law School
  • School of Social Sciences

The City Campus has excellent facilities for staff and students including sports hall, gym facilities, cafes and has the city centre on its doorstep.

Due to the central location, there is limited permit parking available for staff, however there are excellent public transport links, park and ride facilities and there is a tram stop on campus.

Clifton Campus

The Clifton Campus is outside the city centre and has recently undergone a major refurbishment. It is home to the University’s sports courses, so naturally there are plenty of recreational facilities available to all staff and students; excellent sports hall, all-weather floodlit sports pitch, cricket pitch and modern, fully-equipped gym facilities.

Schools based at this site:

  • School of Arts and Humanities
  • Nottingham Institute of Education
  • School of Science and Technology

The Clifton Campus is self-contained and has its own bar/diner, supermarket, bank, cashpoint machines, and bookshop.

Parking is available on campus, although a permit is required.

Brackenhurst Campus

Brackenhurst is an idyllic 200-hectare estate, about 14 miles out of Nottingham, built around a renovated Edwardian country house. Peacocks wander around the grounds as serene skylines and green pastures dominate the view.

The School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences is based at Brackenhurst, and the campus offers facilities including: a commercial farm and a state-of-the art equestrian centre, a library, careers service, computer facilities, dining room and bar. There's also a beautiful lake with a boathouse and landscaped gardens. The campus also has multi-purpose sports gym and pitches and extensive equestrian facilities.

Brackenhurst is not far from the vibrant atmosphere of Nottingham, and there are plenty of transport options including a public bus service that travels into the centre of Nottingham every 20 minutes throughout the day.

Parking is available on campus, although a permit is required.
