Students

Autumn Careers Fair arrivals

This information is for Employers (or their couriers) booked to attend the Fair on either Thursday 19 or Friday 20 October 2017 (or both days). The Fair is open to students 11am-4pm on both days.  

Please use the information and links below that are relevant to you and ensure that this information is forwarded to all your staff attending on the day and any couriers that you are using. Employers may arrive from 9am.

Where to find us

Postcode - BA2 7AY. Please see our web page on travel advice, for those travelling by train please note the GWR information webpage, which may affect your journey.

Maps of the campus and of the location of the University are also available online. If you are using public transport and taking a taxi from Bath Spa train station, please ask for the University at Claverton Down, as there are two Universities in Bath.

Venue

Sports Training Village - see the campus plan specific to unloading/parking. The fair is on the lower level – do not use the front entrance up the slope by the flagpoles. Details may be subject to change due to construction works.

Fair layout plan

Your stand numbers will be available upon arrival at the STV. See the hall layout plan for the stand layout for both days.

Couriers/deliveries and exhibitions companies

  • No deliveries before the day of the Fair. We cannot accept any deliveries into our office or the Fair venue before the day, nor hold onto any stands/goods for collection the following day.

  • If you are using a courier to bring your stand/other goods, they may only deliver direct to the venue on the day of the fair. Please forward them these details and ensure that all goods are labelled with the client (not courier) name.

  • If you are using CES, Ian Wilson, MSI or Impressions – we will liaise directly with them regarding directions and your stand locations.

  • Couriers may gain access from 8am and must collect goods within one hour of the end of the fair i.e. 5pm, as we cannot offer security of goods later than this. After that the hall is returned for Sports use.

  • All goods must be delivered directly to the stand that you are allocated - NOT TO THE DOOR - and any cars must be moved to the car park as soon as unloaded. Vehicles must not remain in the unloading area whilst stands are erected, as we need to allow others to gain access.

Unloading

If your own staff are bringing your stand or other goods in a car, then please use the campus plan as above and follow the signage for unloading. Student helpers will be on hand to assist you from 9am and again at the end of the day. You must move cars to the East Car Park (or other if full) as soon as you have unloaded.

Parking

Parking on campus is at a premium and we have an agreement for a limited number of vehicles only. If you have not booked a parking space in advance, then please use public transport, and do not bring additional cars onto campus as there will not be space. Parking fines may be issued (by an external company) to any cars who park in the wrong area/without a permit. Permits for second vehicles cannot be used.

Please ensure you enter campus via the main entrance off Claverton Down Road. Use East Car Park as signposted. One permit, if requested will be emailed to your booking contact no later than two weeks before the fair. You may use any permit space other than the exclusions listed on the permit provided and you must bring and display this permit in your windscreen on the day. Arrivals after 9.30am may have to use the East overflow section of the car park and, if you are bringing your own goods, it will be best to unload prior to parking as you will be further away from the Sports Training Village. Please note that we are not allocating a student to greet you as in previous years, so please familiarise yourself with arrangements prior to arrival.

Lunch

On arrival, please come to the Careers Service stand under the clock and collect your Welcome Pack. This will include lunch and drinks tickets for the number pre-booked. We cannot accept requests on the day for additional lunches, but there are various catering outlets/shops available in the STV building itself or elsewhere on campus, for you to purchase any additional lunches. Each representative will be issued with a reusable voucher to obtain hot drinks in the lobby area throughout the day. Bottled water is also provided on each stand.

WiFi

WiFi is now accessible campus wide. The network 'The Cloud' is now broadcast throughout the University. The service is operated by Sky so people with a Sky account can automatically log in. Other users can sign up by connecting through the 'TheCloud' and providing the required details to get an account.

See https://service.thecloud.net/assets/FAQ/ for more details and how to download the App before the day.
