Student communications

Internal Comms banner 3

The Internal Communications team manages student communications that are aimed at a large proportion of the student community. If you have a message for a specific school or faculty, please contact the appropriate faculty marketing and communications manager.

Due to a high volume of requests, please be aware that we work on a minimum seven day turnaround to upload finished copy to internal communications channels.

MyNottingham app

The message tile on the MyNottingham app can be used to promote messages that are of exceptional importance to students. These must be relevant to at least two-thirds of the UK student population. We replace message tile content every two or three days.

Events

Events can be promoted on the University's central events page and centrally managed screens located around our UK campuses. Design requests should be submitted via the Design Team six weeks prior to the start of the event using the creative brief. This allows a clear month to use the designed materials to promote your event. Please inform your faculty marketing manager as they can help and advise on promotional opportunities.

Due to a high volume of requests, we are only able to publish events which have promotional materials designed by our in-house design team or one of our agency partners.

Twitter @UoNStudentLife

Messages for students feed into a number of the university’s social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, which are all managed by the Digital Team. However, the @UoNStudentLife account dedicated exclusively to content for Current Students and messages can be shared here, accompanied by an image and a link to more information.
