    Notts = Nottinghamshire

    The correct abreviation for "Nottingham" is Nottm.

    Chances of being left out in freshers week are slim unless you either want to be left alone or are a complete social recluse.

    The correct spelling of abbreviation is with 2 b's, pedant.

    Despite my location I am actually from Nottingham.

    It does matter how it is said! There is no such football team as Notts Forest and it annoys me no end when people refer to them as such.

    I was just thinking that it would be a good start if the guy knew the correct name of the institution that he is due to study at .

    Why be so pedantic when you went on to spell "abbreviated" wrong? That makes you look rather silly.

    So what? I was simply trying to explain to the guy that Notts Trent is not the name of the institution. Calling Nottingham Nottinghamshire is like calling Hull uni Humberside uni and I don't want people thinking that I have anything to do with the last place I mention .
