Student Accommodation in Nottingham

Written by Sam | December 30, 2020

Nottingham is an incredible student city, with two universities, you have the option of the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University with a good set of transport links in and around the city centre.

With that many students in the city the student housing I would say is split between the two universities, however, the student accommodation side (PBSA) is mainly concentrated towards the city centre and Nottingham Trent University.

If you want to read more about the universities, or the place, please follow the links. Nottingham University or Nottingham Trent University. If you want to see what Nottingham has to offer follow this link.

Student Accommodation For Nottingham

As I said before, a lot of the student accommodation that comes in the form of the big blocks, are all towards the city centre and closer to Nottingham Trent University. This is purely because they are allowed to build these types of accommodation in that area and won’t be allowed in the suburbs of Nottingham.

If you want to live in one of these but go to Nottingham University then you can get public transport which goes each day from Nottingham city centre, plus trams.

When looking at these providers make sure that the services they offer are good quality, for example, make sure the gym is a good size and the cinema room is adequate for more than one.

There is plenty of choice in Nottingham and this favours the student because you don’t have to rush, you can make sure that you get the best place for you and you have plenty of options. This will give you choice over the location you want as well.

Nottingham has a good transport setup, with most of the accommodation being around the train and bus station it means you can get in and out of Nottingham easily and in to your student accommodation.

Student Housing in Nottingham

Student housing in Nottingham is the main provider of student accommodation, just like most other cities, however, with the city having two universities, you will be able to find housing around the university rather than it all being in one area like the big blocks are.

There being a lot of students there is likely to be a lot of landlords who want to use their house for students and at the minute, I personally think there is not enough good quality student housing in Nottingham.

By this I mean there is more demand than supply for good quality and affordable student housing. This means that a lot of students book early to avoid disappointment and that many end up in not very good student housing but pay the same price as those in good quality student housing.

Some of the main areas for student housing for the University of Nottingham is:

  • Lenton
  • City Centre
  • Beeston
  • Dunkirk
  • St Ann’s

For Nottingham Trent University, there are these areas:

  • Arboretum
  • City Centre
  • Clifton
  • Forest Fields
  • Hyson Green
  • St Ann’s
  • The Meadows

With Nottingham you have the choice of being in the city centre or choosing somewhere slightly further out like West Bridgford or Wollaton where the rents may be cheaper, have a more homely feel, however, on the flip side, it will take you a little longer to get into university.

Some of the good agents that I can see in Nottingham are:

They are in no order and there are more agents in the city. These are just some of the agents that we found and think do a good job of providing good quality student accommodation in Nottingham.

Summary

Because there is a lot of student accommodation, the PBSA providers have dominated the city centre, you have lots of options and slightly different locations, this favours students more if they are at Nottingham Trent University, however, if you are going to University of Nottingham, due to the good transport links it is easy to get to.

There is plenty of student housing in Nottingham, but I think there is not enough quality student housing at a reasonable price. There are plenty of locations to choose from with student housing which is good for both universities.

The prices in Nottingham are also relatively good. They aren’t the cheapest, but they are also far from the most expensive and you can get quite a lot of house for your rent if you so wish.
