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? Tram and bus systems are great.

Living in Nottingham

There are two universities in Nottingham: Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham. You can still visit a lot of the historic areas, like the castle and old Lace Market but the centre of the city is particularly well developed, with some great shopping to be found.

Top 10 Tips for Students in Nottingham... 

1. IKEA. Take advantage of the massive IKEA just outside of Nottingham for all the bits you need for your new accommodation. Keep an eye on studentbeans.com and you might even find some offers you can use whilst you’re there.
2. Fancy a drink? Pub-lovers and those who appreciate a “proper pint”, get along to the Robin Hood Beer Festival every October at Nottingham Castle. Oh, and pay a visit to Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem. It’s the oldest pub in England.
3. Goose Fair. The annual Goose Fair in October is a good laugh, not to be missed.
4. Gigs. Music fans keep an eye on Rock City and Rescue Rooms for some quality gigs, and it’s worth sticking around for the Splendour music festival in the summer. Also try Bodega and the Corner for emerging artists.
5. Pizza. There’s a Dominos in Nottingham, Beeston and West Bridgford, and you get a fat 25% discount on orders over £25 with your NUS card – very handy for when you can’t be bothered to cook.

Tweets from https://twitter.com/studenthouses_/nottingham

6. Flicks. The Broadway cinema shows some great films that don’t make it into the mainstream cinemas largely just because they’re not brainless Hollywood blockbusters.
7. Cycle. Bring your bike – according to a recent survey, Nottingham is the UK’s no.2 city for cycling!
8. Public transport. The tram is great for getting around in Nottingham, and it runs until midnight so it can get you on the way to your nights out too. Get a 3 month or 12 month student pass to save money.
9. Free time in the day? When you’re stuck for something to do during the day, Market Square often has something going on. Yearly highlights include the Christmas Market, a winter ice rink, Nottingham Food and Drink Festival and a ferris wheel.
10.Nottingham Uni students. Get involved with the rag group Karnival – it’s the biggest student-run charity in the whole of Europe and comes highly recommended by students as they organise some awesome events.

Only in Nottingham 

  • For pubs there’s a wide choice, but aficionados may want to head to ‘Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem’, and down a brew in the oldest pub in England. The Robin Hood Beer Festival takes place every October, in the Castle grounds.
  • Goose Fair: This doesn’t actually involve geese any more (what a festival that must have been!) It’s a massive funfair that visits once a year. Well worth getting along to.
  • City of Caves: One for the history buffs. People have been digging caves into the hills of Nottingham for centuries, using them for homes and workplaces. Now protected by the council, it’s possible to take a tour and discover this underground city.

Getting about

  • Bike: A recent poll found that Nottingham is the second best city in the UK to cycle in. Hooray!
  • Tram: As well as a very efficient bus system, Nottingham has a set of trams around the city centre. It’s very handy, but if you have a car DO NOT drive on the tramlines. There are signposts for Tram Only roads, but they can be missed if you’re not on the lookout... It will be the most terrifying thing you will ever accidentally do. Plus they’ll fine you.
  • Everywhere else: The M1 runs up past Nottingham, connecting you to the rest of the country. There’s also a good train network through the city.

It is still under lockdown, so the shopping and eating experience is not good. This situation may be improved after the lockdown is over, but I can only give a low score for now.

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. However it's important to stay safe during the evening as the city completely changes atmosphere as people go on their nights out.

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.

Nottingham is an incredible city to come and study at. It’s not too much of a big city but it’s not too small either, so you’re bound to cross paths with someone who you may know. There are numerous shops and restaurants. Night outs were always amazing. There were a wide range of choices to go - Rock City is my No. 1 choice

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.

Nice city, easy to get around. The city centre is not too far from the Nottingham uni and the uni runs free buses for students between the two campuses which does take you closer to town. Range of places for a night out so you can have a variety of different experiences.

Love the city- walking distance to University of Nottingham (although we all take the tram anyway!) and lots to do. Particularly good for cocktail bars and clubs. Only downside is that buses don't take card or give change for cash but apparently they've just released a mobile app to make things easier. Accommodation is so cheap!!!

The nights out are really good and will probably be some of the best memories of what I can remember.

It is a small space so there are shops, just not as many as Manchester or Birmingham.

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).

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.

At first its a little bit expensive but once you find the better supermarkets to shop at its fine, nottingham is an amazing city, home to Rock city (best nightclub in the uk) has ALOT of shops, Public transport is mainly Council owned and ran, its really consistent has night buses to campus etc

Public transport is great. There's plenty of buses that cover a large area of Nottingham. The price for the yearly academic bus pass is ridiculous and there have been no upgrades. Living costs are ridiculous

Nottingham is great place for studying. Eating out can be pretty costly but there is a lot of student deals, you just need to look for these. The transportation works pretty well too.

A different experience to the likes of Manchester, London, Leeds etc given the campus but it suited me very well. Would also head out into the city and had great time.

Great city to live in, student halls and housing close to campus and city centre. Lots of great places to eat and drink. Good transport links with busses, trams and a short walk to the station

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.

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

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.

Coming from London, Nottingham feels rather small however it also feels homely. The people are kind, the city centre is decent however the list of shops is not extensive and the nightlife is very student driven with a night out for every day of the week.

Love It! #UoN

Nights out are great, so many places. The city itself has something for everybody. Plenty of places to go shopping. Easy to get around. Generally pretty nice people.

Cons?
Can be quite expensive, suppose anywhere is if you're a student though...
