Address and LocationLocated in the heart of England, Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is split across three campuses in one of the UK's most diverse cities. NTU has earned a reputation for excellent teaching standards, high graduate employability and providing an inspiring learning environment.
Background and HistoryFounded in 1843 as the Nottingham Government School of Design, NTU became a polytechnic in 1970 and was awarded university status in 1992. Since then, the university has undergone a £130-million development of its three campuses. Nottingham Trent alumni include D.H Lawrence and Turner Prize-winner Simon Starling.
Location and Accessibility
By Road: Being centrally placed means Nottingham is accessible from most corners of the UK. To get to the university's City campus, take the M1 or A46. Exit the M1 at Junction 25 onto the A53 eastbound, or Junction 26 onto the A610 eastbound. From the A46, take the A52 west (Grantham Road). Either route goes directly into Nottingham city. Traffic in Nottingham can be congested, it's worthwhile using one of the city's Park and Rides services if visiting the university. The Phoenix Park and Ride is clearly signposted from the A610, as is the other location on the A52 westbound.
