Tour, Talk and Stay

You now have the opportunity to visit our campus for a campus tour, information talk and an overnight stay in our accommodation (Covid-19 guidance permitting).

A chance to explore in-person

It's been a difficult time for students making their university choice. With limited opportunities to visit campuses, we have built some great online resources. As good as they are, they don't replace seeing a campus in person.

Now UK COVID-19 restrictions are beginning to lift, we are offering pre-applicant students the opportunity to visit our campus and stay overnight. We are offering separate event dates for:

  • events for unaccompanied under 18 students (supervised by University staff overnight)
  • events for over 18 students and under 18 students accompanied by a legal parent/carer/guardian

You'll get to stay in University accommodation, meet current students and find out what Bath has to offer. Spending a lot of time with us is the perfect way to experience our campus and find out what it is like to study in Bath. It will also be an excellent opportunity to explore the city you could live in.
