On Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 September you can explore some of the University’s most interesting buildings - for free.
We are again taking part in Edinburgh's annual Doors Open Day, one of the capital's most popular free events, which gives the public an opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes peek at buildings of architectural, cultural or social interest.
Our Doors Open Day brochure has details of the University buildings that are included, with opening times and maps.
Our buildings range from historic landmarks to contemporary structures which offer our students and staff a wide variety of locations for teaching, learning, research and leisure.
Each building will provide information and free activities to help visitors learn more about its history, design and what goes on there.
For the first time, the MRC Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine at our Western General Hospital campus will welcome visitors to its brand new building.
Across the central area, buildings open to the public will include:
At King’s Buildings, home to the College of Science and Engineering, there is an orienteering trail, guided tours, and a multitude of interactive family workshops and hands-on science activities across the campus.
