Nottingham's first civic college was opened in the city centre in 1881, four years after the foundation stone was laid by former Prime Minister, W E Gladstone. After the First World War, the college outgrew its original building and in 1928 the College moved to what is now the main campus, University Park. Even in its early days on this site, the College attracted high profile visiting lecturers including Professor Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi and H G Wells. In 1948, the college was awarded the Royal Charter and became The University of Nottingham, now able to award degrees in its own name.
University Park is The University of Nottingham’s largest campus at 300 acres. The campus is widely regarded as one of the largest and most attractive in the country. Set in extensive greenery and around a lake, University Park is the focus of life for students, staff and visitors. Conveniently located only two miles from the city centre, the campus contains Portland Building, which houses the Students' Union, the Student Support Centre, as well as shops, banks, bars and restaurants.
