Guided campus visits for individual students
Pre-book your place and join us back on campus.
Join us for a socially distanced tour of campus
With the further lifting of government restrictions, we’re pleased to invite prospective students, applicants and offer-holders back onto campus.
We're running a programme of campus tours, led by student ambassadors, who will take your around our Oxford Road campus. The tours will give you a great feel for the university and provide the opportunity to ask questions of students and members of staff.
Tours will take place outside, be limited to groups of 15, and will last approximately 45 minutes. Given these are general tours in mixed groups, we're unable to visit individual academic departments. However, access to a small number of buildings open to current students will be permitted, including our Learning Commons and Students' Union.
Unfortunately, we're not able to offer tours of our accommodation at this time, however you can explore all that our accommodation has to offer online. You can also book on to one of our accommodation webinars, or stream a previous one at a time suitable for you.
Important information to read before attending your tour
- We're continuing to follow the latest government guidance. This may require us to make changes to the tours at short notice, but we’ll keep you up to date of any changes.
