Nottingham has a large and active Students’ Union (UoNSU) performing a variety of tasks and services for the academic community. It organises a yearly schedule of events and activities through an engaging and exciting extra-curricular programme. UoNSU is led by a democratically elected student-run committee, which acts as the voice of its membership, and campaigns for student issues. They also co-ordinate over 70 clubs and 300 student groups, which form a significant and memorable part of the student experience.
Students can turn to the students’ union website for advice on a range of issues including money, their course, housing, and wellbeing. The UoNSU website is regularly updated with news on student-run organisations like Nightline, campaigning or volunteering opportunities, society information and events, and student network news including our mature students’ network, LGBTQ+ network, and lots more.
Extra-curricular activities form a significant part of a memorable university experience. The University of Nottingham Students’ Union co-ordinates a comprehensive variety of clubs and societies so that all students have the opportunity to try something new, develop an existing interest, and meet like-minded people.
UoNSU runs over 300 student societies and more than 70 sports clubs. New students can get a feel for the majority of these during the annual Welcome Fair event at the start of term. There are cultural societies, language groups, course-related organisations, arts and culture clubs, and much more. Students also have the opportunity to set up a new society for something which isn’t already offered.
Nottingham is a large and vibrant contemporary city, with a rich history that postgraduate students are well placed to discover. Home to a diverse population of around 330,000 residents, the university community represents a large proportion of this number meaning Nottingham is often considered as a student city.
With a visible blend of old and new, there is truly something for everyone in Nottingham. The city has recently been ranked in the QS Best Student Cities 2022 survey as the 9th best city in the UK for students, and the 53rd globally.
Located in the central Midlands, excellent public transport networks make Nottingham the ideal place from which to visit other cities in the UK.
