Freshers' Week 2021 - Get Involved!

It won't be long until we will be welcoming students from Nottingham Trent University (NTU) and the  University of Nottingham (UoN) back to the city. For many students it will be their first year in the city, either being a Fresher, or because they were unable to explore Nottingham last year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Nottingham BID is planning a series of activities to welcome students back, starting with offers and discounts from our levy payers. So if you are planning to offer a student discount or have a special event planned for Freshers' Week, please let us know and we will publicise it through our consumer facing channel, It's in Nottingham.
