Highfield Campus tours

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.
