5,000 expected at Open Day - Thursday 15 September

Open Days are very important to the life of the University.

See Related Links section to view Thursday's timetable of talks.

We are expecting about 5,000 visitors (prospective students and their parents) to attend on Thursday, most of whom will arrive by car from approximately 9.30am, so there will inevitably be extra pressure on parking spaces.

Overflow parking for visitors will be on the playing fields in front of Eastwood Residences, on the playing field behind the STV and possibly on the playing field beside BUCS (2 South).

In order to minimise traffic flow through the campus, access to the sports fields at the Eastern end of the campus will be from East car park where driveways have been created.

The fire road between the Sports Hall and Estates will be closed to allow pedestrian access to the rear of the sports hall; and access to the north zone will be via the underdeck and fireroad beside 9 West.

Please can members of staff park in their normal car parks but if they experience any difficulty, they should speak to one of the extra Security Officers who will be on duty to assist them.

Thank you for your understanding and apologies for any inconvenience caused.
