The university is located in the heart of Nottingham in vast facilities comprising student hubs, student unions, sport facilities and international house and plenty of student accommodation right next to the campus. Even though the university is very large, the individual programs are relatively small. There is a great student-teacher ratio, which means that each class has two teachers and several tutors.

NTU also has an enormous library and many student services (writing labs, employability services, counselling, wellbeing etc.) The university has a tight connection with the industries.
