Getting Around

Nottingham Express Transit offers discounted bus and tram EasyRider cards from £40, which includes night time transport. Students can get ten per cent off EasyRiders by purchasing three-month, six-month or 12-month travel cards.

While there are limited tram services to campuses, buses save the day with special Unilink services that travel university grounds. The Unilink 31 goes to the University of Nottingham’s Jubilee Campus and the Unilink 34 goes to the Campus Grounds. To get to Nottingham Trent University’s Clifton campus take the Unilink with the NTU logo and the number 100 bus from the city centre to the Brackenhurt Campus.

There is a tram stop to Nottingham Trent University’s city centre campus called Goldsmith Street, which is four stops up from the main train station in the city, or a 15 minute walk. Tram lines are limited to routes around the city centre and to Hucknall and Phoenix Park. Nottingham Train Station in the south of the city has PlusBus schemes whereby train and local bus and tram tickets can be bought together. For discounted train travel international students can buy a young person’s rail card. The train station has a tram stop nearby and Broadmarsh Coach Station is located round the corner of Trent Street.

The nearest airport is East Midlands, which is half an hour’s journey away from the city centre by Skylink bus, which departs from the city centre and the train station. A single fare costs £5. Planes fly to Europe, Africa and the Middle East with connections to other destinations through London airports.
