Nottingham accommodation

Hi everyone, I've recently been accepted into the uni of Nottingham for management and I will be on the jubilee campus. - yay !

If anyone is applying for accommodation there or is staying in accommodation there currently please help me. Im trying to find an accommodation that is either on campus or a short walk of like 5-10 minutes to the jubilee campus. Im doing self catered and I'm looking for an en-suite with a shared kitchen.

I don't feel comfortable to state my budget here so any suggestions can be made and I will look into them. I don't mind private or non-private student accommodation. Let me know which accommodation you're at and what you think of it and any suggestions you may have if yours isn't the one you think will suit a fresher with my requirements best.

I am an international student and so I am not able to see it in person, thus why I'm asking here!

I've been looking at Nottingham two and I quite like it but I'm open to suggestions as I would like to explore all options :smile:

Thanks so much tell me what you think, goodluck to those who are waiting for offers :smile: x

Hey,

I am a current 3rd year student at the university of Nottingham.
I was in St. peters court which is really close to Nottingham Two. It fit your description of en-suite and shared kitchen. I personally really liked it and it is so close to cheap supermarkets which is great for student shopping!.
Close to Jubilee and also just across the road from Nottingham Two is Raighly park and manor villages which are again en-suite and shared kitchen. I visited a friend at Raighly park and the difference between most halls is not much so that could also be one to look into.
At the other side of Jubilee campus is also riverside point which is owned by the same company (unite students) as St. peters court so is in the same set up as there.

Congratulations on your offer and if you have any more questions about accommodation and Nottingham in general just let me know,
Emily :smile:

I think I've narrowed my options down to nottingham two, deakin's place and manor villages. Which one would you say is the best one out of those?
Manor seems to be more spacious, nottingham two has better bathrooms and deakin's place is brand new opening in September with a more modern look.

I also got an offer for management in notts!! and same I not sure which accom to pick as I ask want self catered but am unsure whether to pick accom in university park campus as students say its a lot more fun and lively compared to jubilee campus accom but this would mean I would have to take a bus of walk everyday. OR I would pick off campus accom near jubilee such as deakins place as it is new and location wise is great but people say that in private accom its not as social so I'm really not sure

me too! I've narrowed it down to nottingham two and deakins place but I've heard quite bad reviews from nottingham two saying that there are lots of maintenance problems such as having cold water and kitchen appliances not working so I'm more to deakins place as its new but I'm scared it would have similar maintenance issues as nottingham two as they are merging the two together as one (accom village or something)

Wow I didn't know that about nottingham two ! I think I'm going to apply for deakins place and maybe manor villages as they're both really close to jubilee and I think it's better to be close to campus but still a fairly short bus or tram ride to city center!

Congratulations on your offer and I hope to see you there x

Hey,

I am a current 3rd year student at Nottingham.

In my first year I was in self-catered off-campus accommodation called St. Peters court, which is about a 10 minute walk from jubilee. I wouldn't let being 'off-campus' put you off. Anyone I know that has stayed in the accommodation on jubilee or somewhere near like Riverside point or Manor villages has has a great time and enjoyed being a bit closer to town and to good shops like a Lidl, Aldi and B&M.
All of the accommodation on campus is catered, with the closest self-catered accommodation being Broadgate park, being at the furthest end of campus from jubilee.
There is a free hopper bus that runs between main campus and jubilee campus so wherever you ended up you would be able to get between the two very easily.
I think the best thing to do would be to think about whether being close to campus, being self-catered or any other things are most important and make your decision based off that. There will always be something going on at any accommodation and also there are so many other ways to get out and meet people than accommodation such as the sports clubs and societies at the uni.

Hope this helps and if you have any more questions just let me know,
Emily :smile:

Hey,

So dafge house is just off campus (in the same place as Broadgate park - which makes it good for socialising).
It takes about 5 mins to walk to campus and about 15/20 mins to walk to the opposite (science) end of campus.
From what I know it is a really nice hall with good facilities and they have good IMS sports teams (the non-competitive leagues where you can play netball, football, hockey etc without the pressure of being in a uni team).

It is really close to Beeston if you need to go shopping or want to go to a café or bar and also close to the tram stop so you can be in town in 10/15 mins which is handy.

I have left a link below where you can see all of the facilities listed etc (you have probably already seen this but just in case) but if you have any more specific questions just let me know,
Emily :smile:

Hi Emily, I was wondering if you know anything about Vantage, like car parking, location or reviews etc. I’m starting this year and I’ll be in the University Park Campus. Thanks

I'm Ishita, a female student from India. I'm 21 currently and am moving to Nottingham for pursuing my postgraduate degree @NTU. I'm looking to live with somebody who only cooks vegetarian food! Please let me know if that suits you.

Thanks!
