We are one of the few universities to offer a free inter-campus bus service for both staff and students. Services run from the main University Park Campus to Jubilee Campus, Sutton Bonington Campus, King's Meadow Campus and Royal Derby Hospital Centre. View timetables for the hopper buses
Public bus services
Through strong partnership with Nottingham City Transport (NCT), we have established a number of public bus services that provide direct links between University campuses and Nottingham city centre (view map of routes
). Joint initiatives with local bus operators continue to increase bus patronage on routes serving University campuses. More on local bus services
Local bus operators Nottingham City Transport (NCT), Trent Barton and Your Bus offer discounted rates to students, including £1 fares on many routes within Nottingham - just show the driver your University card. A Student Genie card from Your Bus offers 20% off all single Your Bus fares (including the £1 student fare).
Look out for great value academic year passes at Freshers' Fair. Students can use their University card as a bus pass on NCT buses – visit the NCT counter at Students’ Union Reception in the Portland Building.
We have teamed up with local transport operators to offer University staff the opportunity to purchase travel passes through Payroll – many at discounted rates – by paying in monthly instalments. Find out more about purchasing a travel pass through Payroll

The Government has given the go-ahead for the extension of Nottingham’s tram network (NET Phase Two
). The proposed route from Nottingham city centre to Toton Lane Park & Ride will provide additional travel options for staff, students and visitors, with the development of three tram stops close to the Medical School and University Park campus. Read more about the tram developments
