How to find us
Due to recent investments by the Nottingham City Council in Nottingham's transport infrastructure, significant regeneration activity is currently underway. As a result there is some disruption to services and roads near The University of Nottingham to be aware of. We advise visitors to allow plenty of time for your journey to the University.
Nottingham tram developments
Work on Nottingham's multi-million pound tram service extension is now underway. The new route extends Nottingham Express Transit (NET) service to the south and southwest of the city, reaching Chilwell (via the QMC), Beeston and Clifton (via Wilford). The completed tram works will connect the University directly to the city which will allow even better and convenient access for students to the city centre and surrounding areas. More information is available here.
Travelling by car
We advise visitors travelling via the M1 to avoid Junction 24 due to significant roadworks taking place on the A453 which could increase journey time to the University. Please be aware that traffic has increased in and surrounding Nottingham due to tram developments and roadworks so please allow sufficient time to complete your journey to the University.
Please display a parking permit in your car. If you do not currently have one, please print this out here.

Travelling by train
Nottingham is right in the centre of the country and is very well connected to all other major cities by the train network.
Regular services operate between Nottingham and London St Pancras (from 1 hour 45 minutes), Birmingham (1 hour 15 mins), Leeds (2 hours), Manchester (2 hours) or Sheffield (1 hour).
For train information, tickets and timetables visit the National Rail Enquiries website.
From the train station it is a short walk to the nearest bus link to University Park. If you leave the station via the main entrance walk out onto Carrington Street and turn right. After a short walk down Carrington Street, cross over the road and Broadmarsh bus station will be on your right, please see bus routes below.
Travelling by bus or coach
The University of Nottingham is linked by frequent bus routes to and from the city centre by a variety of services which come every 5-10 minutes.
From inside Nottingham Broadmarsh Bus station, the Trent Barton Indigo service is available and will stop at University South entrance. There is currently construction at this entrance yet it is still open for pedestrian access - simply walk across the road and onto campus.
Alternatively Nottingham City Transport provides a service direct onto University Park campus. Exit Nottingham Broadmarsh Bus station at the pedestrian street exit and turn right onto Collin Street. Cross over the road and turn right again, continuing to bus stop C7, from which the Unilink 34 service departs from.
Please note: many of the local city buses accept correct change only to reduce delays, so please have small cash to hand.
