NTU is fortunate to be located in a city that has an excellent public transport network. In addition to the city network, the University has spent the last few years significantly investing in facilities for cyclists and those who choose to walk or run to the University.

NTU's Transport Plan is linked to EcoCampus where a range of objectives and targets have been set to encourage the use of sustainable transport by staff, students and visitors.

Active travel

NTU encourages its staff, students and visitors to choose active travel options to the University as well as around and between each Campus. Various measures have been introduced to help people get moving including shower and locker facilities and restricted access cycle parking. Such active travel choices help to improve employee and student health. Have a look at the calorie burn benefits of walkingPDF icon , cycling PDF icon and running PDF icon to NTU!

Cycling to NTU

NTU offers staff and students great facilities to cycle to work including:

  • over 600 cycle parking spaces across the estate
  • a predominantly traffic free cycle route between City Campus and Clifton Campus taking just 30 minutes
  • a bike hire scheme for staff and students, and
  • funding to buy a bike as part of the government's Cycle to Work initiative.

For further information on cycling please refer to the Bike Factory pages or contact our Cycling Coordinator via email.

Walking and running to NTU

Plan your walk or run to and from NTU via which gives you the most direct route, the calories you burn and the CO2 emissions saved from walking or running your journey rather than jumping in the car. To find the nearest shower facilities across NTU's Campuses visit the Bike Factory page. Walking to work or on your lunch break is a great way to get active.

Travelling by bus

Our very own award-winning Go2 Uni 4 Bus Service runs up to every seven minutes and is available for students, staff and members of the general public throughout term time, Monday to Friday. This service takes you to and from NTU's City Campus into the heart of the Clifton Campus in about 20 minutes, depending on traffic. The route is ideal as it goes through Nottingham city centre via Nottingham train station.

Lift Share

NTU is reducing its carbon footprint – and helping staff to save money – by setting up a car-sharing scheme.
The free-to-use online system, which is designed to cut travel costs as well as local congestion and pollution, enables its members to share lifts to any destination.

For anyone that is interested in joining the scheme or wishes to know more about it, there is now a permanent Liftshare link on Staffnet, or you can go directly to the Liftshare page.

Car parking

While NTU do not actively encourage our staff, students or visitors to come to university by car, we are aware that it's unavoidable for some. If you have to drive, take a look at these green driving tips to help reduce your emissions and save some cash.
