You need to register to come to this Open Day. You also need to book on to most talks and tours in advance as spaces are limited.

Talks and tours

You can now book places for talks and tours on the day. You can bring as many people as you like to the Open Day but, due to the popularity of our events, each student can only bring one additional person into the talks and on the tours.

Look at our timetables to see our programme of talks and tours for the day. We also have a number of Department drop-in sessions and exhibitions which you don't need to book in advance. Our timetables have full listings of everything that is available on the day.

Travelling to the Open Day

Find out about ways to travel to Bath and get onto campus. If you have a long way to travel, you may want to book a room in our campus accomodation.

On the day

On campus, you'll find Welcome Points in our West car park and East car park, outside the Library and at the bus terminus.

Student Ambassadors and staff will be there to welcome and guide you. You can recognise them by their red University T-shirts.

One thing we can't plan for is the weather. Please check the forecast and come prepared.

Take a self-guided campus tour

Our self-guided tour will help you explore our campus at your own pace on Open Day. It takes you all around the campus as well as through a variety of student accommodation blocks and academic departments.

Listen to talks and go on Department tours

You can go to talks:

  • about the University, admissions and life here
  • by Departments on subject areas and facilities
  • from our student’s union about their work to enhance the student experience
  • from Team Bath, covering the range of sports available

You can also go on tours of Departments and their facilities.

You need to book on most of these.

Visit the Information Fair

The Information Fair is open from 9.30am to 4pm in the Sports Training Village.

It's the place to get information, ask questions and meet academic staff, admissions staff and support services.

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

Look around our accommodation

Look around our campus accommodation between 9.30am and 4pm to see where you could be living.

Visit the Accommodation stand in the Information Fair to find out more about room allocations and costs.

Take a Library tour

Explore the Library by joining our hourly guided tours. Lasting 20 to 30 minutes, the first tour is at 10.30am and the last is at 3.30pm. You do not need to book in advance.

You can also go on a self-guided tour of the Library at any time during the day.

Find out about our students' union

Our students' union, The SU, 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 the interesting things you can get involved in.

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

The SU will run talks on the day. See the General talks and tours timetable for timings.

Go on a sports facilities tour

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 10am, starting at the STV entrance. There's no need to book.

Visit our city centre student hub

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

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

Have something to eat and drink

You can get free bottled water at Welcome Points around the campus.

Our campus has a supermarket, cafés and other places to eat all open on Open Day. You can also get food from pop-up food stalls on the day.

Our catering facilities provide for a variety of dietary requirements.

You are also welcome to bring your own food as we have plenty of picnic areas.
