Community Open Day Gallery

The university hosted a community open day on the afternoon of Saturday 22 September, giving local residents, staff members and others a look behind the scenes at its city centre campus.

The free to attend event formed part of the university’s celebrations marking its 175 years as a centre of education in the city. It included demonstrations, tours and other activities across campus and within several buildings as well as live music, face painting and other family friendly entertainment. The community open day was a great success with hundreds of people attending and enjoying everything on offer throughout the afternoon.
