Travelling to the Open Day

Read our guide for details of how to travel to Bath and get onto campus.

If you're a group coming by coach you must let us know in advance so our security teams are expecting you. Email with numbers, size of coach, time of arrival and your contact details.

GWR is offering a 20% discount for Advance Purchase rail tickets.

On the day

Once on campus, you'll find Welcome Points in our West and East car parks, in the Information Fair, outside the Library and at the bus terminus.

Student Ambassadors and staff, wearing red University t-shirts, will be on hand to welcome and guide you throughout the day.

Information Fair

Based in the Sports Training Village, this is the best place to find the information you need. You'll find department stands as well as information on all aspects of university life and there will be a range of staff and students around to answer your questions.

The fair can get very busy at times, so you might want to get there before lunch so you can plan your afternoon.

The Information Fair is open from 9am to 4.30pm.

Talks and tours timetables

Explore the campus

Look around our accommodation

We know how important it is to find out where you might be living while you’re at Bath. Some of our accommodation blocks will be open for viewing between 9.30am and 4pm, so do take a look around whilst you’re on campus.

You could also book a room around Open Day and stay overnight, to see what it's like to live in our accommodation.

Visit our city centre student hub

If you’re in the city, take look around our new learning commons and student support centre.

It’s a three-minute walk from the central bus and rail stations, and 15 minutes from our Claverton Down Campus.

Look around campus in your own time

Pick up a copy of the Open Day guide (available at Welcome Points all around campus) and use the tour printed inside to see the sights at your own pace.

You may also want to spend some time looking around our beautiful city - ask any of our staff and students for tips on the best things to see and do. There’s no shortage of places to eat!

Talk to an ambassador

Don't forget to talk to our student ambassadors - they're the best people to give you an idea of what living and studying here is actually like.

Dozens of our current students will be here to answer your questions, whatever they may be. Look out for their bright red t-shirts while you’re making your way around campus. There will also be plenty of ambassadors in the Information Fair who will be able to talk to you about your course, or about some of our facilities and services.

See the things that matter to you

Whether you’re interested in the arts, want to find out about sports, or would like to see the learning facilities, there are plenty of options for you to find out more by dropping in for a tour or having a look around.

Take a Library tour

Explore the Library by joining our hourly guided tours. Lasting 20 to 30 minutes, the first is at 10.30am and the last at 3.30pm.

Sports facilities tours

Catch a guided tour of the Sports Training Village (STV) to see the facilities you can enjoy as a student here, whatever your sporting ability. Tours run every 30 minutes from the STV entrance and there's no need to book.

The Edge arts space

If you haven’t been able to book an online tour of the Edge; our dedicated arts, education and events space, you will still be able to see some of facilities on offer or visit their stand at the Information Fair to find out more.

Find out about the Students' Union

The Students' Union forms an important part of your experience and we're proud it is one of the best in the country.

You can chat with students from societies and get an idea of what you can get involved in.

As well as the fun stuff, the Students' Union (SU) is a source of advice and support. You can meet SU staff and learn about how they help students make the most of their time here.

Get something to eat and drink

There are water fountains available across campus so do please bring a bottle or a flask to fill up on the day. You can find out where these are located at any of the Welcome Points.

We have a supermarket, cafés and places to eat and there'll be pop-up food stalls on the day. These places will be open from 7.30am:

Campus accessibility

For help getting around the Open Day, please visit the Welcome Point which is located at the bus stop. There will be a dedicated person on hand to arrange support and offer advice. Quiet rooms can be found on campus.
