Travelling by car

Visitors travelling via the M1 can exit at either Junction 24 or 25. Please be aware that there maybe increased traffic around the Nottingham ring road due to roadworks so please allow sufficient time to complete your journey to the University. We would advise visitors to use either the North or West entrances. Maps and directions can be viewed here.

Car parking permits

Please display a parking permit in your car. If you do not currently have one, please print one out here.

Using sat nav?

When driving to University Park Campus via satellite navigation please use the postcode: NG7 2QL.


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 or tram link to University Park.
For buses:
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.

For trams:
The nearest tram terminal is situated within the main train station itself. Just look out for the signs. More information is available here.


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.


Travelling by tram

You can now hop on a tram which is available from all our major transport stations. Tickets must be purchased before boarding. The Toton line takes you directly to the University and visitors should disembark at University Boulevard stop. More information is available here.


Travelling by plane

From East Midlands Airport (approximately 10 miles)

From East Midlands Airport you can take Trent Barton Bus 5b, or the Nottingham City Bus Runway 5. Buses leave from outside the Airport Arrivals hall.

You can also walk to the taxi rank on the terminal forecourt and take a direct taxi to the University. The cost of a single/one way journey is approximately 20. Taxis are normally available 24 hours.
