Buses from Nottingham train station

For University Park campus, the bus stop closest to the train station is Broadmarsh bus station (for Trent Barton’s Indigo services).

For Jubilee campus, take any of the services listed above that start from the city. They depart from the northern side of the city centre, so you may want to use the tram or free Centrelink bus to get around the city centre.

Buses from Beeston train station

For University Park campus or Jubilee campus, the bus stop closest to the train station is ‘Laburnum Grove’ (on Meadow Road) for Trent Barton’s route eighteen service.

Alternatively, more frequent bus services go from Beeston Interchange (on Styring Street) – a 5-10 minute walk from the train station.

Buses from East Midlands Airport

There is a 24 hour Skylink bus service from East Midlands Airport to Nottingham City Centre. The service goes past the University Park Campus (on route to Nottingham Broadmarsh bus station) and a reduced frequency service goes to Sutton Bonington (on route to Loughborough).

Taxis

Avoid rogue and unlicensed taxi drivers – Nottingham City Council licenses two types of vehicles – Hackney Carriages and Private Hire vehicles. If you get into a Private Hire car without pre-booking it (that is – you stop it or find it in the street) you may not be covered by insurance. Private Hire drivers call this ‘flying’ and they know they are breaking the law. If you are involved in an accident you will experience difficulty in claiming for any damage or injuries. For more information, please visit our Community web pages.
