In these challenging times, the wellbeing of our members is our top priority.

We are closely monitoring the situation with COVID19, which has required us to make some changes to our operations for the remainder of this term. These include:



We are postponing our main elections for our Officer Team until term 3. Voting was originally scheduled to open on Friday 20th March. We will announce new dates for our officer elections in the coming weeks.

Voting in our Sports and Society Committee Elections will still take place as scheduled. Sports club and Society members can vote for their committees from 8pm Friday 20th March. See our Elections page for more information.



The University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, in conjunction with their Students' Unions, have reluctantly agreed to cancel the 2020 Varsity Series. 

The evolving guidance in relation to the COVID-19 outbreak has meant that a suspension or postponement of the series was not an option. 

We understand participants and spectators will be disappointed. Circumstances permitting, the series will return in the next academic year (2020-2021).

Refunds on tickets purchased will be issued by our ticketing partner, FIXR, who will be issuing refunds in line with their existing terms and conditions. Cash refunds will not be offered. Specific enquiries should be directed to 



All of our events are cancelled until further notice. This includes evening and daytime events in our buildings, daytrips and society events. Our box office is now closed. For enquiries regarding specific events, please contact 



Society activities are cancelled until further notice. Sports and Society Committee elections will still go ahead as planned. Society members should email specific enquiries to 



All Students’ Union buildings on campus are now closed, but we will continue to support you during this difficult time. Most of our services can still be accessed through our website including our Information and Advice Service. If you need advice or support with anything, you can arrange telephone appointments with our advisors through our website.

If you would like advice on accommodation and your rights as a tenant, please see our COVID-19 housing guidance page.

Other services

NTU begin online learning from Monday 23rd March. For more information on this and the support available through the University, please see their website.

NCT have temporarily suspended the No. 4 bus services between City and Clifton. Students who would normally use this service should use the No. 1 service instead.

We appreciate that this is a difficult time for everybody. Our officers and staff are working from home, and we will be finding new ways to support you online in the coming weeks. Make sure you are following us on social media and continue to check your email, so you don’t miss our information and activities designed to help you through the current situation.
