Not really expecting much but here goes....

Me and a friend are going to be studying at Nottingham Trent University and are in need of somewhere to live.
We are looking for a 2 bedroom house or flat close to Nottingham Trent University campuses.

Any help is much appreciated! Thank you!

You really need to give as much info if you want us to help you
First what is your max budget
Do you have access to cars or just public transport
Have you ever been to nottingham before do you know where to go and more importantly where not to
#2
Ok, thank you.

Budget is around £80pw ( Something including bills is preferred)
I have access to a car, so parking is needed.
Been to Nottingham once and that was only to a music concert (so no idea of the area). I'm going to be based in Clifton campus of the University mainly.

Thanks for asking me them questions, feel like that has helped myself even!

What areas should be avoided? Thanks again!

Yes it can be a bit scary at first but at least you starting to look now rather than leaving it to the last minute.
I reckon your best bet is if you have friends etc who were in a similar position last year see what there experiences are.
Have you ruled about staying in halls for your first year then move out the following year

Thank you for this. We have considered university accommodation but decided not to go here as we are mature students who will both be studying for a Masters.

There are 3 campus for Nottingham Trent University - sadly any rental property close to these will have a higher rental value but cycling routes and public transport is fairly good for all (except not sure about bus route to Brackenhurst campus)

City campus - close areas for easy access is Arboretum, Sherwood, Canning Circus + a few others
Clifton campus - close areas Clifton, West Bridgford, Ruddington ((cycling only)
Brackenhurst campus - Southwell (pronounced Southall) not too sure about this site!

£75 incl bills would get you just a room in a shared house down where I live in Gloucestershire.. Most 2 beds are £600 plus bills.

sorry was typing/editing my post whilst you gave more answers

Clifton campus has good routes for cars/buses/cycling but problematic parking for non residents on the Clifton estate (close to the campus) caused by students using the streets for their carpark.

Clifton is a large estate and mostly good but sporadic spots of youths/louts etc. Anywhere in Clifton is only a 10min bike ride to the campus, Ruddington 20mins, West Bridgford upwards of 20mins

Even finding a rental property in the City Centre would only be a good 35min bike ride and 25mins on the bus

You've probably used to university's site maps but check the link for google maps to give you a better idea of it's location/area

Ah ok jammy as mature students then yes probably halls are not the best option all i was going to say as you are probably aware if you move into a house in a "student area" unfortunately they are deliberately targeted by thieves etc as they know if they break into a student house normally they will find 4 tvs,computers etc also unfortunately security is not the highest concern normally leaving back doors,windows etc open.
A few years ago i use to rent a place in lenton and our house was the only one not broken into on our street it maybe coincidence but there was a policeman in the flat above mine.
Good luck on where you decide.If you need any other information just post below

I'm not certain how your comment is relevant; OP has already stated that they're looking in Nottingham (which is cheaper).

Thanks for all the answers. I hope to find somewhere soon, maybe someone is looking for tenants or knows of someone on here?

Nice to know which areas I should stay clear from at least!
