Our next Open Day needs your help!

Our first Undergraduate Open Day of the new academic year takes place on Saturday 15 September 2018. The event planning team are seeking colleagues to help at Welcome Points and to work alongside Student Ambassadors at various locations across campus.

Open Days are a unique opportunity to showcase our University and to convince the brightest and best that Bath is the right place for them. Welcoming several thousand visitors to campus and giving them the right first impression is a real team effort and if you are able to offer your help it would be very much appreciated.

Applicants who attend one of our Open Days are more likely to make Bath their first choice having been impressed by the warm welcome from our staff and students, and with the wonderful facilities and campus we have to offer. Creating this positive first experience of the University can really make a difference.

If you can offer to help or want to find out more please email Events Officer Gemma Noyce on g.j.noyce@bath.ac.uk or call x5417.

For those working on the day, the information below gives you details about parking and reimbursement for your time.

Many thanks for your help.

Professor Bernie Morley

Deputy Vice-Chancellor & Provost


Academic staff will be given credit under their department’s Workload Allocation Model for attending. Any preparation time should be undertaken prior to the day. Alternatively, they will be granted time off in lieu for the hours worked.

Professional Services Staff on grades 1-9 who are not contracted / rostered to work on 15 September will be granted time off in lieu for the hours worked at a rate of time and a half for the hours worked provided that the hours worked that week exceed their contracted hours (FTE) for that week.

Where it is not possible to grant staff on grades 1-5 who are not contracted / rostered to work on 15 September time off in lieu, they will be paid at time and a half for the hours worked, provided that the hours worked that week exceed contracted hours (FTE) for that week.

Time off in lieu should normally be taken within one month of being accrued. However, as an exception, any time off in lieu for attending the Open Day can be taken up to Christmas 2018.

Staff Parking and Travel to campus

For those coming to campus on 15 September, please bear in the mind the extra pressure on the surrounding roads, car parking and public transport we can expect. If possible please consider public transport or car share as travel options.

Visitor cars will be directed to East, South and West car parks as normal where they can park or be directed on to over flow car parks on the grass fields. All parking is free on Open Days in all of the University’s car parks.

For those staff arriving later in the day who may struggle to find space to park, Security Services have allocated K car park for you to use. K car park is located to the rear of Brendon Court.


This car park will not be staffed and there is no need to use a special pass. Spaces in this car park will be on a first come first served basis.
