More University buildings to open their doors to the public this month

The University of Edinburgh is opening its doors to the public as part of the Doors Open Days on 28 and 29 September.

More buildings will be open than ever this year. The newly refurbished Law Library and the award-winning Bayes Centre are among those taking part for the first time. 

With over 430 years of history, the University's estate has a real mix of old, converted, listed, and contemporary buildings.
