Research facilities and resources

University of Nottingham students have access to many spaces and places in which to conduct their independent study and research. Many of the public collections are unique to Nottingham, and tutors add to these collections with their own personal libraries.

Faculty of Arts student facilities are chiefly located within University Park and Kings Meadow Campus, though virtual environments allow for research within and presentation to a global audience.

In addition to the resources, University Park offers facilities through which to engage with the public, and realise the impact of individual and collaborative research.
