Hello there

We are Nottingham Trent Students’ Union

We have…

3 campuses. Over 100 student societies. Bars, nightclubs and coffee shops. Events every night of the academic calendar. Hundreds of activities and opportunities for you to get involved with at university.

Whether you’re studying at City, Clifton, or Brackenhurst, Nottingham Trent Students’ Union is here to make sure that your time at NTU is the best it can be.

From keeping you entertained with our events programme and helping you do what you love with our societies to supporting you when times get tough, we have a lot to offer students at NTU.

We’re not just here for Freshers’ Week; we have lots to offer you throughout your time at NTU. We are the official representative body for Nottingham Trent students, and we are affiliated with NTU and NUS. That means we’ve got your back when it comes to making the most of university.

Getting involved in NTSU can really enhance your University experience. Don’t just take our word for it; we score highly in national rankings, as voted for by our students:

Top 10 in National Student Survey 2019

Top 10 in WhatUni Awards 2019

Socialising doesn’t stop after Freshers’ Week; it plays a huge role in your university experience. We offer a diverse range of daytime and night-time events to cater for all tastes throughout the year. Follow our dedicated entertainments social media channels for more details.

We understand that University life can sometimes be overwhelming, which is why we have our own Information and Advice Service (IAS). They act independently of the University so you can get free advice and guidance on everything from money matters to mental health.

From blogging or knitting to politics or astronomy, there’s a society for every interest at NTSU. Joining one is a great opportunity to meet new people and try new things. You can even join them before you get here. Online memberships are available on our main website from 1st August.

We have a range of personal development opportunities available throughout the year designed to boost your employability. Our training and activities will help you develop new skills and experience so you leave university with more than just a degree.

“I strongly believe that the Students’ Union plays an integral part of every students’ university experience.”

Elissa Rapaport
BA Primary Education

Your views are important to us, which is why we have a range of representatives in place to make sure our students’ voices are heard. From Academic Reps who represent you on issues relating to your course or school, to our Executive Officers who take care of everything from campus facilities to student wellbeing, we are here to represent you.

For more information on everything we do, please see our main website.



Here are a couple more things our students have to say about us:

“As a foreign student, the cultural change was initially uncomfortable, but through NTSU, I have been able to quickly adapt to my new environment.”

“Being involved in the Students’ Union has helped me decide what I want to do with my life once I have finished university.”
