NTU gets down to earth

Nottingham Trent University’s (NTU) estate comprises over 240 hectares of land across its three campuses, ranging from city centre to farmland. NTU work hard towards conserving and continually improving biodiversity found on and around the estate. Staff, students and the local communities getting involved help enrich a diverse environment.

NTU continually go beyond minimum legal requirements in terms of the biodiversity protection and enhancement across the institution. Practices have been developed in farming and landscape strategies as well as construction and refurbishments taking consideration of the impacts on surrounding biodiversity.

Staff and students are involved in biodiversity projects becoming more aware of the habitats and species that they will encounter during their time at NTU.

The Biodiversity Index captures a vast amount of data ensuring continual improvement and demonstrates NTU’s commitment to protect and enhance the biodiversity of the university. Green Flag status on the campuses further highlight efforts made.
