The audio tour allows you to explore our beautiful campuses at your own pace, at a time that suits you. The app is free to download and is compatible with most iOS and Android devices – all you need is a smartphone or tablet. Prior to downloading please read the privacy policy below.

Accommodation tours

Access inside our student accommodation is not normally possible, as our students live here for the majority of the year.  We know how important it is for you to visualise where you might live, so we have photographs and videos available through our Virtual Visit.

The Accommodation Services website also provide more information on student accommodation, including photographs of the sites and facilities we offer.
