Visitors to campus with electric vehicles
If you park at one of the campus charging points during Open Day, please move your vehicle to another parking spot once it is charged so other visitors with electric vehicles can use the facility.
Visit the Information Fair
The Information Fair, in the Sports Training Village, is the hub of the Open Day and is open from 9.30am to 4pm.
You can visit our academic and general stands, such as accommodation, admissions, funding, sport, and many more. Current Student Ambassadors and staff will be there to talk to you about your course, our facilities, and our services.
The Information Fair can get very busy at times, so you might want to get there before lunch to help you plan your afternoon.
