Nottingham

171 Reviews by Students #40 out of 422 University locations

The city is the best place to be a student I would recommend it to everyone.

By Jasmine99 On 9th June 20

Study in Nottingham 

Nottingham is home to two large and award-winning universities, the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University. The city is big enough to have lots going on, but not so big that you feel lost.

Nottingham Student Life

Nottingham is the perfect mix between a lively city and a relaxed vibe. There is a huge student population so the city really does cater for everything you could possibly need during your time studying there. Plus it has some of the best shopping outside London!

Cost of Living

Accommodation

Student accommodation costs on average £165 per week.

Compare the average elsewhere: Birmingham: £169/week, Manchester: £184/week, London: £291/week.

The average price for:

A cheap meal at a restaurant: £12
A pint of beer: £3.60
A regular takeout coffee: £2.75
1L of milk: £0.91

This is about 2% higher than equivalent costs in Birmingham, about 1% higher than Manchester and about 17% lower than London.

Shopping

Nottingham is known as one of the best shopping centres in the country. You’ll find vintage bargains in Hockley, designer boutiques in the Exchange Arcade and well-known high street shops in the Victoria and Broadmarsh shopping centres.

Cultural Guide

Cultural Events

The annual Goose Fair happens very soon after the new academic year starts and is certainly a laugh. It no longer has anything to do with marching geese as it did in its earlier days. Now it’s a massive fair with the usual rides, candy floss and mushy peas with mint sauce abounding. Eight centuries of fun continues.

Theatre & cinema

For a cultural experience, head to the independent cinema, Broadway, to watch films that don’t make it to mainstream cinemas, oh, and screen 4 was designed by Paul Smith. You can also take in a play at Nottingham Playhouse, a renowned theatre, which puts on a variety of performances ranging from music, comedy, dance and theatre.

Museums

Explore Nottingham’s past by taking a tour at City of Caves, taking you underground through a network of caves under the streets. This page wouldn’t be complete without a mention of the majestic Wollaton Hall, a country house built in the Elizabethan era. The Hall is home to Nottingham’s Natural History Museum featuring a large collection of stuffed animals, fossils and other specimens.

Cost of living is very convenient when you want to live close to essential shops. And there is a large variety of places you can go to with friends and you will never really get bored.

Public transport is horrible, with buses completely disregarding their schedule to the point that you will often have to wait for up to 2 hours for a bus scheduled to arrive every 10 minutes. Based on my experience, the people (including professional staff) here are quite indifferent, so if it isn't in their interest to help you, you probably will not be helped. Other than that, it's a decent city, with great clubs and eat-out options. read more

Very good value for money/renting is well-priced (as long as you're sensible with your house!). Lots of brilliant restaurants in Lenton (Uni of Notts student area) and the city. Clubs are brilliant and can recommend the Rose & Crown to Uni of students. Shopping is good in the city and for food - there are 2 Lidl's in Lenton, what more could you ask for?

I don't see Nottingham as expensive but I haven't lived in another city so don't really have anything to compare it to, reasonably priced compared to down south I guess, average pints of £3.50 in pubs to put it into perspective. Eating out places are very abundant, lots of chain restaurants as well as smaller chains and international cuisine, the Christmas Market offers some of the best opportunities for high quality foreign cuisine. Nights out are second to none, Nottingham nightlife is very good with lots of pubs, bars and a variety of clubs with different events of different nights. Ocean, Pryzm and Rock City are the main Unviersity of Nottingham clubs. Shopping is good, Victoria Centre has a lot of well established shops and the high street has a lot of mens clothing places, something for everyone I'd say. And finally, Nottingham City Transport is affordable and accessible. Lots of buses running to and from the city centre as well as the extensive tram network that goes all around. read more

Good transport but tram...

Good transport but tram gets expensive for daily uni trips. The walk from Lenton isn’t bad but it isn’t ideal on top of the mileage you’ll walk on the vast campus. Nightlife is mediocre - Crisis and Ocean are supposedly the best spots but the music in those establishments are largely cheesy or tunes your parents would listen to. Ink and Pryzm offer a more modern, urban theme but prepare for the swathes of desperate males on all floors. Easy access to supermarkets in first year and second year (Lenton, not Dunkirk). read more

Housing in Nottingham...

Housing in Nottingham city centre has proved so far to be very expensive, however I suppose that is what comes with being right in the middle of a city. Eating out is like any big city with kindreds of options and standard prices and service (I have not had a bad experience so far). This goes for shopping too. Nights out are buzzing and there's not a single day of the week that you cannot go out; with Nottingham being a safe city most clubs close at 3am and no matter where you go there are street pastors as well as police so even walking home I haven't felt unsafe at all. Public transport is brilliant with buses running every day and trams running nearly 24/7 for a very cheap price. As well as this taxis are not badly priced and NottinghamCars (taxi) run a student safe service that allow you to charge the student union for your journey should you ever be stranded without money - you then have 24 hours to pay pack the union. I think this is a brilliant system. read more

Nottingham city centre is a good place to live whilst at university. With great energy and night life. The market square always has something going off for a cheap day out. The tram service can take you anywhere in the city and I had some great shopping experiences there too. Nottingham really does have everything you need. read more

I lived in a gorgeous flat for so much less than my friends in other cities were paying. Also the nightlife in Nottingham is incredible - there's so much for everyone! If you're wanting 'classier' cocktails and food etc there's so much for you in that respect as well. There are some gems, including the hidden cocktail bar, Boilermaker, and also Tilt is a wonderful place to spend an evening, with live music every night. Also the transport links are great, buses to and from the uni every 5-7 minutes, and trams running through the city centre to the station often - and almost finished links all the way through to the uni as well. A wonderful city! Great shops as well, two shopping centres and luxury shops like Space NK etc too read more

Some areas can be quite expensive to live in for students but are generally worth the money. There are hundreds of options of eating out, ranging from anything you can think of. Nights out are absolutely fantastic and there are a range of different things to do from club nights to bar crawls. Public transport is also extremely good with buses running to pretty much everywhere and also a very good modern tram service which has recently been significantly extended to outlying parts of Nottingham. read more
