University of Nottingham

About

History

  • 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.
  • A generous gift by Sir Jesse Boot, of 35 acres of land at Highfields, presented the solution and in 1928 the College moved to what is now the main campus, University Park. 
  • In 1948, the college was awarded the Royal Charter and became The University of Nottingham, now able to award degrees in its own name.
