This is the place where it all began

Our welcome to the world. Where state-of-the-art facilities inhabit work-of-art surroundings. This place is the beating heart of our world beyond ordinary. The hub of student life, a home for student welfare. Where majestic Portland holds court with magnificent parkland. Trent at the head. Lakeside for the arts.

This is the place it all started, and where it all starts. This is University Park, Nottingham. Home of it all.
