Alternative Places To Study
If you need a break from your student accommodation or feel like taking a nice stroll before deciding on your next study spot, here are some of the best alternative places to study:
Nottingham Central Library: Books? Check. Computers? Check. As the largest library in Nottingham and the principal library in Nottingham, you won’t be disappointed with the range of services on offer. Set out over 4 floors and open from 8.30am all the way through to 7pm on a weekday, you don’t need to be worried about bagging a seat. There’s enough for everyone.
Wired Cafe: If you simply cannot function without a strong coffee, head to this great little cosy cafe on Pelham Street. Everything about this place makes it feel like home and it helps that it’s also in possession of a quiet and slightly more private downstairs area, making it very productive for getting that important coursework completed.
Ugly Bread Bakery: Unique name, unique place. With authentic Italian hot chocolate so thick you can stand your spoon (or pen) in it, you’ll be glad you found this treasure. There’s a lovely seating area right by the window, so you can watch the world go by on your study breaks. Bliss.

Nottingham is a social, student friendly city with fun things to do popping up all within easy access of your student home. Fancy the latest blockbuster at the Savoy Cinema? Or maybe you just need to find a quiet space to clear your head before exam time. Whatever it may be, here are a couple of go-to places we recommend visiting during your time as a student:
Lenton: Located ideally between the city and the main University campus, Lenton is seen as the ‘student mecca’ and plays home to many of our accredited student properties. With plenty of shops and amenities nearby, it’s a close walk to campus or students can jump on one of the numerous buses heading to the city centre.
Intu Victoria Centre: At the heart of Nottingham city centre, there’s a lot to explore here. From top brands making a great student shopping experience, to the popular Clock House dining quarter, a recent refurbishment has transformed this centre, attracting vast numbers of visitors.

“Described as a magnificent 17th century ducal mansion, Nottingham Castle is situated atop cliffs 130 feet high, producing beautiful views of the city. Originally built in 1067 by Norman the Conqueror and then rebuilt by a series of other kings of the past, Nottingham Castle is embedded in history. Offering a medieval to modern British and European art collection, this ancient building has a lot of culture to offer for visitors who wish to take a step back from the bustling city life.” ( Bradshaw, 2017)
