Introduction

A big part of the university experience is attending open days – a prime opportunity to get a real feel for what student life has to offer. Not only that but you get to explore the city you’ll be calling home for a few years to come. Whether it’s through a virtual tour or wandering the streets yourself, there’s nothing like seeing the facilities and sights yourself.

Researching open days can feel like a bit of a minefield when you first start your search, that’s why we’ve done some of the hard work for you. We’ve got all the details you need from key dates to locations for open days at University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University.

At open days, you’ll also get the opportunity to explore the universities’ halls of residence. While you’re in the city, we’d naturally recommend you stop by our student accommodation in Nottingham. Both of our sites are ideally located in the city centre and within a few minutes of Nottingham Trent University, and within easy reach of superb transport links to University of Nottingham.
