Ways to experience the University

Find out how you can explore our campus, meet currents students and staff and learn what it's like to study at Bath as an undergraduate student.

Undergraduate Open Days

An Open Day is the best way to explore the campus and experience undergraduate life before starting your studies.


We hold Undergraduate Open Days in June and September each year.

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

You can also look around the campus and visit facilities, including the students' union building, the Library and the Sports Training Village.

Bitesize Bath

If you can't make one of our main Open Days, our Bitesize Bath events are a great opportunity to visit us.


Our Bitesize Bath events are a great way to find out what Bath can offer. You will hear from some of our current students and members of our Student Recruitment team, and have the chance to explore our campus.

Bitesize Bath runs from 2pm to 4.30pm on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 23 October 2019
  • Thursday 24 October 2019
  • Friday 25 October 2019
  • Wednesday 30 October 2019

Weekly Campus Tours

Come on a tour of our Claverton Down campus and find out what makes the University so special.


If you're interested in seeing the campus, you can join our Student Ambassadors for a guided tour.

Tours start at 2pm on most Wednesdays and Fridays, and will take place until early August.

Email campus-events-team@bath.ac.uk if you have any questions about our campus tours.

If you already have an offer to study here, we'll invite to an Applicant Visit Day. This includes a tour of the campus so you don't need to book a separate tour.

Self-guided tours

Our campus is open to all, so you can come and look around whenever you like.


If you want to come to the University in your own time, we'd recommend you visit during term-time. You'll be able to find out what it’s like when all the students are here and get a real taste for life at Bath.

During the week, you can look inside many of the buildings and rooms if they're not in use. You can also visit the West Accommodation Centre for information about accommodation.

It's best to plan your visit at least a week in advance so you can arrange to:

  • talk to someone about a specific course
  • visit study facilities, such as laboratories

Visiting us if you have a disability

If you have a disability or specific learning difficulty, you can arrange an individual campus visit.

Our summer school gives you the chance to experience lectures, seminars and workshops to start learning the study skills you need for university1.

You'll get to stay at the University, use our facilities and resources and join social events. You'll also be able to talk to current students and staff, including Admissions Tutors who'll give you advice about writing your personal statement.

School and college visits

If you'd like your whole class to find out more about being a student at Bath, you can ask your school or college to organise a visit to our campus.


UCAS exhibitions

We regularly visit UCAS exhibitions around the UK, so if you can’t make it to Bath, you can still meet us in person at a free event near you.
