Luck­i­ly, we’re here to give you the low­down on all your trav­el options for get­ting to and from college:

We are unable to pro­vide car park­ing at the City Hub, Adams Build­ing, High Pave­ment, Sta­ple­ford, High­fields and Wheel­er Gate Salon. How­ev­er, there are NCP car parks and on-road park­ing a few min­utes walk from the sites (just make sure you don’t leave your car in a restrict­ed zone — no one likes park­ing fines!)

Bas­ford Hall (£3 per day) has a large num­ber of park­ing spaces for students. 

Train

Not­ting­ham has great con­nec­tions local­ly and nation­wide, mak­ing train trav­el eas­i­er than you may think. Plus, you’ll get to take of advan­tage of Not­ting­ham’s beau­ti­ful recent­ly-ren­o­vat­ed train sta­tion. View the net­work map here.
