The campus and its facilities

Jubilee Campus is a modern purpose-built campus which now extends to 65 acres and is located only one mile from University Park. The initial phase was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1999. The state-of-the-art facilities now include:

  • the Schools of Education (including CELE) and Computer Science
  • The Nottingham University Business School
  • The National College for Leadership of Schools and Children's Services 
  • a Sports Centre
  • University of Nottingham Innovation Park
  • 4000 third party purpose-built student residences within half a mile radius of the campus

Green Flag grounds, walks and garden guides

The local community are welcome to enjoy the walks, parks and gardens in the University’s landscaped settings which feature:

  • long-established woodland
  • contemporary gardens
  • the Millennium Garden - a quiet, reflective place in which to escape the hustle and bustle of campus life

The campus has been a Civic Trust Green Flag Award Winner every year since 2003 – the only university campus to achieve this status. 

Please visit Estates website for more information about the grounds.

Millennium Gardens, University Park


Built on a site that previously had industrial use, Jubilee Campus is an exemplar of brownfield regeneration and has impeccable green credentials.

An important feature of the campus is the series of lakes which, as well as being home to a variety of wildlife, provide storm water attenuation and cooling for the buildings.

Less visible - but equally important to the sustainable and environmental credentials of the campus – are the:

  • roofs covered by low-growing alpine plants which help insulate and maintain steady temperatures within the buildings throughout the year
  • heat recovery mechanical ventilation systems
  • lighting sensors to reduce energy consumption
  • photovoltaic cells integrated into the atrium roofs
  • lake source heating and cooling systems
  • biomass boiler installation
  • maximised use of passive ventilation engineering


The environmentally-friendly nature of the campus and its buildings have been a big factor in the awards that it has received, including:

  • the Millennium Marque Award for Environmental Excellence
  • the British Construction Industry Building Project of the Year
  • the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Journal Sustainability Award
  • the Civic Trust Award for Sustainability
  • Lord Mayor's Award for Urban Design

The Jubilee Campus also won international praise with the Energy Globe Award.
