Flexible Workspace for Nottingham Trent University Students

A space for business. A home for ideas. This is the Dryden Enterprise Centre.

The Dryden Enterprise Centre (NTU ERDF Enterprise Innovation Centre project), is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020 (ERDF).

The perfect place to grow your ideas.

A range of workspaces available, from casual areas to drop in, to private offices.

NTU Students who want to start their own business, go freelance or are getting support from NTU Enterprise can work with the team at the Dryden Enterprise Centre to access a safe, professional place to base operations – with the award-winning business support NTU can offer.

We also host regular events, from networking to training, to help you connect with prospects, suppliers and like-minded entrepreneurs while boosting your skills and confidence.

If you’re interested in starting your own business, or you have a new idea you’d like to test out, be sure to contact NTU Enterprise first to see how we can help.

Frequently asked questions

How can NTU Students Access Workspace?

The Dryden Enterprise Centre is a commercial building, and we don’t offer any teaching or learning space as part of the NTU campus. This means the only people with access to the building are those with a business or those who are working with NTU Enterprise to start or support businesses in the area.

If you are an NTU student or post-graduate and you need some help with a business idea, then see how NTU Enterprise can support you.

Maybe you don’t need any support and you’re ready to join the DEC Community as a fully-fledged business, you can make an enquiry to join the DEC as a commercial member. Find out more about our memberships to see what’s on offer.

Can any NTU Student use the Dryden Enterprise Centre?

Short answer, no. The Dryden Enterprise Centre is not open to all students and doesn’t house any teaching or learning space. If you have a business or you are working with NTU Enterprise, you can use the space.
