Welcome to Nottingham

Home isn’t a place – it’s the feeling that you’re free to be whoever you want to be. And you’ve just found it. 

Wherever you’re coming to us from, we want your first few days, weeks and months at the University of Nottingham to be as brilliant as possible. We're here to support you every step of the way.

Here’s everything you need to know as a new student, from getting your results through to arrival and settling into life on campus. It’s normal if you feel a bit nervous, so make sure to also check out our student vlogs on what to expect when starting your journey at Nottingham.
