The Best Student Deals…Everything Else!

What’s the best thing about being a student…? New friends? Care free mid-week nights out? The… education? Nope.

It’s the discounts.

If you’re lucky enough to hold an elusive “NUS card” read on: we’re going to show you just some of the very best deals that are ready and waiting for you to take advantage of right here in Nottingham. Last week we looked at some of the best restaurants for students and in the final installment of our mini-series, we look at all the other great places you can make the best of your student card in the city centre!

Everything Else

Bliss Hair

When money’s low, haircuts can be one of the first things to go. Thankfully there’s plenty of Nottingham salons with student deals that will help you cut the cost of keeping your hair in tip-top condition.

Book an appointment with Bliss (located in Sherwood – a short bus ride from the city centre) and you can get 50% off your first visit and 20% off any subsequent visits. They also do half price hair colouring on Wednesdays and offer late deals to help fill last minute slots.

Student card needed? Yes for 50% off first visit and 20% off subsequent visits, no for half price hair colouring and late deals.



Nottingham Cars

Taking a taxi is a bit of a luxury when you’re strapped for cash but sometimes, they’re a necessity – especially when cabbing it is the only way to be sure you make it home safely.

With that in mind, get this number in your phone: 01159 700 700. It’s for Nottingham Cars who offer a 10% student discount but more importantly, a “Student Emergency Fare Home” – if you find yourself with no money and no way to get home they will take you – they’ll just retain your student ID until the fare owed is paid.

Student card needed? Yes




Trendy, boutique style salon Jacks offers separate men’s and women’s salons and late night openings three times a week (8pm on Wednesday and 7.30pm on Thursday and Friday). Students get 20% off haircuts and your first visit will be discounted by 25%.

Student card needed? For 20% off, yes. 25% off first visit is available to everyone.




On the outskirts of Radford (a short walk north of the Nottingham University Jubilee Campus) you’ll find Nottingham’s branch of budget fitness chain, Xercise4Less. Student memberships are just £9.99 a month and gives you full peak access to the centre’s 400 pieces of high-tech equipment, a ladies only zone, and more than 40 classes weekly.

Student card needed? Yes



The Tanning Shop

Nottingham’s Tanning Shop offers four varieties of state-of-the-art sunbeds alongside a Mystic HD automated spray tanning booth. Students get 20% off all sunbed or spray tanning packages as well as any lotions bought in the store.
