Students' Union

The award-winning Students' Union is the heart of student life at NTU and, from personal development opportunities and learning new skills to social events, regular activities and representing you, it’s designed to make your time here at Nottingham Trent is the best it can be.

Here are just some of the opportunities and services it offers.


The SU buildings are a hub of activity on the three main NTU campuses; City, Clifton and Brackenhurst. Wi-Fi-enabled coffee shops, bars and diners, a night club and live music space being just some of the facilities you can take advantage of. The City SU building even has a 30ft climbing wall!

There’s an SU shop on each campus that stocks daily essentials like bread and milk alongside handy supplies like stationery and magazines.

Sports and Societies

Joining a society or sports club is a great way to meet new people and learn new skills and NTSU has over 150 of them to choose from. Whether it’s creative writing or astronomy that takes your fancy, there’s a society for everyone and the sports clubs on offer range from the classics like football to the less conventional like archery.


NTSU’s entertainments calendar is one of the most diverse in the country, with club nights, weekend trips, pop-up shops, quizzes and comedy nights being just some of the events they host. You can keep up to date with all the latest at


For any students who are interested in giving back to the local community, NTSU is working alongside the University to launch a new look volunteering service for students. Micro-volunteering opportunities and student-led schemes are a glimpse at what’s to come. Keep an eye out on for updates.


University life comes with its challenges but NTSU’s free and independent Information and Advice Service (IAS) is here to support you through them. Whether you’re struggling to settle in, need advice on mental health or have a question about a housing contact, they’re on hand to help.


From annually elected Executive Officers to Academic Reps, NTSU represents students on all aspects of their academic experience and beyond.

If you want to make changes to your course, have an idea that you think would improve the SU or simply need someone to talk to, your representatives are here to make sure that your voice is heard.
