Info date: April 2013.
The North Entrance is just off the roundabout by Queen’s Medical Centre (QMC), as you head towards Derby.
Buses from town come this way onto the University Park campus. It’s also a good route to the main car park and some of the disabled parking spaces.
|Maps||Roundabout by QMC, at small scale showing City of Nottingham to the east.|
|Map-like photo||Aerial photo shows Queen’s Medical Centre to the right of the dual carriage way, and University Park on the left. It includes the tall tower which is a good landmark for the ESLC building. The ESLC itself hadn’t yet been built when this photo was taken.|
The road straight ahead in the next picture is towards Derby, and to the M1 at junction 25. From this angle, Queen’s Medical Centre would be behind you and to your left.
If you’re approaching along Clifton Boulevard from the south-east (i.e. from the left of the above photo, from Dunkirk area), then this is the first exit off the roundabout. If you’re approaching from the city centre, it’s the second exit off the roundabout – staying on Derby Road.
Here’s that road sign again in close-up:
You turn left into the North Entrance literally as soon as you leave the roundabout. (Where the van is going in this picture.)
If your bus is going onto University Park – e.g. the 34 or L12 – it’ll follow where the van’s going.
If your bus isn’t going onto University Park – e.g. the 35, 36 or Indigo – then this bus stop just by the North Entrance is a good place to get off.
That University sign, a little closer up:
Follow the road round…
That red and white road sign in close-up…
So at the little hut, you’ll fork left or right depending on where you’re headed next.
North-of-Tower Blue Badge parking space (one space), which is also the closest dropping-off point for the Engineering & Science Learning Centre. Turn left, signed Science Area, and take the “back way in” to Science City.
You can also walk/wheel this way to shorten the distance if you’re not in a vehicle.
(You can stop reading this page now if you’re going that way.)
- Or else…
- Main car park
- multi-space disabled parking by the maths building, or
- bus stop near Science City
For these, you want to turn right, signed Main Campus, and follow the road round. Keep reading this page.
At the little roundabout near the eco houses and the colourful NOTTINGHAM sign, take the first exit.
NOTE: The gigantic colourful “NOTTINGHAM” sign is not on this photo, because it was only put up in the summer of 2014, after the photo was taken!
As you follow the road round, the next handy landmark is the white-fronted Maths building.
