Take a campus tour

Our campus tours are a great opportunity to find out what it's really like to live and study here. One of our Student Ambassadors will guide you on a general tour of the main Highfield Campus. You'll visit the Hartley Library, the Jubilee Sports Centre and our Students' Union.  It's a chance to learn about University life and see our state-of-the-art facilities for yourself. Finally, we’ll take you to Glen Eyre Halls of Residence to see an example of student accommodation. Tours take place throughout the year during most school holidays.

A walking tour leaflet of the main Highfield Campus is available from the University's main reception (Building 37, open weekdays). Or you can download the leaflet (PDF).

We have produced an audio tour of the Highfield Campus, together with an overview of our other campuses. The podcast is designed to be played on a mobile device such as an iPod or MP3 player, and is best used in conjunction with the walking tour leaflet (PDF) . See 'Useful downloads' below to download the audio tour.

We recommend using an alternative route for part of the tour if you are a wheelchair user. Please refer to the accessible route map (PDF) for assistance.
