During each of these events Student Ambassadors will provide guided tours of the main University facilities from 2pm.

Please be aware that if you have received an offer to study here you will receive a direct invite to visit the university for an Applicant Visit Day.

Take a self-guided tour

We have an open-campus policy, so you are welcome to come and explore the campus whenever it suits you. It’s best to do this during term-time so that you can find out what it’s like when all the students are here and get a real taste for life at Bath.

If you'd like to talk to someone about a specific course, please contact the relevant department at least one week before your visit to see if they can arrange for someone to meet with you. The university is open during office hours Monday to Friday, and meetings will be dependent on staff availability.

If you visit during the week most of our buildings will be open, and if they're not in use you can have a look inside. For certain facilities such as laboratories, you will need to be accompanied by a member of staff; please contact the relevant department at least a week before you visit to check.

Our campus accommodation will be occupied so you won't be able to see inside, but during the week you can visit the West Accommodation Centre for information.

University Open Days

Open Days are the best way to explore the campus and experience University life before starting your studies.

You can meet students and staff and ask any questions you have about your course, the accommodation and the support we give our students.
