Campus tour
Visit the University for a campus tour

If you are not able to attend one of our Open Days or Visit Days, our Highfield and Avenue campus tours are a great opportunity to get a general overview of what it's like to live and study here, and to see our state-of-the-art facilities for yourself.

Highfield is our main campus, where the library, student union and sports facilities are based. However please check which campus your chosen subject is based at before booking a tour; we are a multi-campus university and not all of our facilities and subjects are based on the Highfield or Avenue Campuses.


What to expect from a Highfield Campus tour:

Tours are on foot and start at 13:45, lasting approximately an hour and 45 minutes

These tours are not subject specific therefore do not include visits to academic departments or buildings.

Avenue Campus tours

Avenue Campus tours are for a subject specific tour of Archaeology, History, Film, English, Philosophy or Modern Languages and Linguistics. They start at 12:00, last 30 minutes and are led by a student.

You can take a virtual tour of Avenue Campus, or find out more on our Avenue Campus page
