Meet the Team: iQ Exchange, Newtown & Newland House

Nottingham iQ life

Our team in Nottingham work across three sites – Exchange, in the Hockley area east of the city centre, and Newland House and Newtown House to the west. Home to students from the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, these sites are all a short walk from the centre of town and its amenities and attractions. Let’s Meet the Team at iQ Nottingham.
