In Autumn 2015, Nottingham Express Transport (NET) opened two new tram lines:
- Line Two: Nottingham city centre to Clifton
- Line Three: Nottingham city centre, through Queen’s Medical Centre, University Park and Beeston, to Toton
Visit the NET website for more information.
Benefits to University staff and students
Line Three passes through University Park Campus, directly linking University Park to Nottingham city centre - including Nottingham train station. In addition to the number of bus services already running from University Park to the city centre, travel is made even easier through the tram line. New tram stops are in place along University Boulevard, at the South Entrance to University Park, and adjacent to the Highfields Sports Ground.
Staff and students based at the Queen’s Medical Centre also benefit, as the tram stops at the hospital – the first tram in the country to serve a hospital. The line also extends to Beeston, a notable student area, and finishes in Toton.
Where can I get the tram?
The new line serves University Park, Queen's Medical Centre and King's Meadow Campus. For a full list of stops, visit the NET website.
Visit the NET website for a look at ticket prices. Please note, all tram travel is 'buy before you board', so make sure you buy your tickets at the ticket machines located at every tram stop before you board. Our Estates team also have guidance for staff and students on their website.
The University has teamed up with NET to offer staff 15% off annual tram passes through salary deduction. Find out more

Will these works disrupt my commute to and from University campuses?
With the tram lines now completed, tram development works will no longer affect the University although some minor finishing works may take place. You can check our dedicated Works affecting our campuses page, which is regularly updated with activity affecting travel to and from our campuses.
