Visit the Information Fair

The Information Fair is open from 9.30am to 4pm in the Sports Training Village.

It's the place to pick up information, ask questions and meet academic staff, admissions staff and support services.

Don't forget to talk to our current students - they're the best people to give you an idea of what living and studying here is actually like.

Look around our accommodation

Take a look around our campus accommodation between 9.30am and 4pm, to see where you could be living.

You can also tour our city centre accommodation where we have 400 rooms. If you want to visit our John Wood accommodation, please fill in our short form to express your interest.

Take a Library tour

Explore the Library by joining our hourly guided tours. Lasting 20 to 30 minutes, the first is at 10.30am and the last at 3.30pm.

You can take a self-guided tour at any point during the day.

Find out about the Students' Union

The Students' Union forms an important part of your experience and we're proud it is one of the best in the country.

You can chat with students from societies and get an idea of the interesting things you can get involved in.

As well as the fun stuff, the Students' Union (SU) is a great source of advice and support. You can meet SU staff and learn about how they help students make the most of their time here.

Sports facilities tours

Catch a guided tour of the Sports Training Village (STV) to see the facilities you can enjoy as a student here, whatever your sporting ability. Tours run every 30 minutes from the STV entrance and there's no need to book.

It’s just a three-minute walk from the central bus and rail stations, and 15 minutes from our Claverton Down Campus.

Have something to eat and drink

Free bottled water is available at Welcome Points around the campus.

Our campus has a supermarket, cafés and places to eat. There will also be pop-up food stalls on the day. Choose whichever best suits you and your plan for the day.
