Visiting Engineering and the Environment

There are a number of ways to visit the University, including undergraduate open days, campus tours, UCAS and Higher Education fairs and self-guided walking tours. 

UCAS Open Days

The University runs a number of open days each year. These provide a great opportunity for you to visit the campus and learn about what the University of Southampton has to offer. To book your place on our next open day please visit the main University site.

UCAS visit days

On receipt of a UCAS form, we invite all promising applicants to visit. Visit days run from the beginning of November through to mid-March. During this visit, you will meet with one of our academic staff to discuss the offer in an informal setting and explore how your interests and aspirations fit with the course. This meeting also gives us the opportunity to get to know you. In addition, you will have an opportunity to meet some of our current students who will show you around our facilities and the main campus. This provides an excellent chance to ask questions about the University, Engineering and the Environment, our programmes and student life at Southampton.

Independent visits

Independent visits to the main Highfield Campus are possible at any time, and a walking tour leaflet is available. We will also be happy to arrange a private visit if you are not able to attend on any of the other preview days. Please contact us.

Virtual tours

Alternatively, take a virtual tour of the University Campus.

“Southampton has the reputation for being one of the best universities in the country for civil engineering. The students I spoke to at the UCAS days were all very enthusiastic.”
