Take a self-guided tour

We have an open-campus policy, so you are welcome to come and explore the campus whenever it suits you. It’s best to do this during term-time so you can find out what it’s like when all the students are here and get a real taste for life at Bath.

If you'd like to talk to someone about a specific course, please contact the relevant department at least one week before your visit so they can arrange for someone to meet with you.

If you visit during the week most of our buildings will be open, and if they're not in use you can have a look inside. For certain facilities such as laboratories, you may need to be accompanied by a member of staff; please contact the relevant department before you visit to check.

Our campus accommodation will be occupied so you won't be able to see inside, but you can visit the West Accommodation Centre for information.
