Campus tours

We encourage you to visit our attractive and welcoming Campus on a guided or self-guided tour.

Campus tours are scheduled on most Mondays and Fridays during term time. At other times, you are welcome to take a self-guided campus tour.

Tours are not available on weekends or Public Holidays.

Campus tours start at 9:30am sharp. Good footwear, weather suitable clothing and snacks help for an enjoyable tour. 

What you will see

Our Tour Guides give insider knowledge of different areas of the university.

Guided campus tours

Guided campus tours visit the library, bookshop, lecture theatres, the recreation centre, student social and study spaces, and some of our fantastic new learning facilities.
