Virtual tours

If you can not visit us in person, you can view some of our facilities in our virtual tours:

Student-led guided tours

The University offers student-led guided tours most Friday afternoons, which are for students and their families who are unable to attend Open Day.

Self-guided tours

If you would just like to look around the University, you are welcome to pick up a self-guided tour leaflet from Student Recruitment & Admissions. Self-guided accommodation tours, which take you round Pollock Halls, the University's main undergraduate Halls of Residence, are also available for visitors.

Other visiting opportunities

If you are unable to attend any of the above visits, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate an individual visit for you.
