On arrival

All visitors must check in with us - our students will be around campus to guide you to event check in, which takes place in Square One (part of TheHub). To ease the flow of arrivals, please try to keep to your arrival time slot - either 9am to 10am or 10am to 10.45am.


What's going on?

We have campus tours, an Information Fair, accommodation tours and some central presentations – you can find all of these in and around TheHub students’ building.


Course information

We have a full range of course sessions taking place in our faculty buildings.

Please check the Visitor Guide for a full course listing with timings and locations.


Food and drink

When you’re ready for a drink or some lunch, we have numerous catering outlets on campus. The event wristband we give to all visitors at check in means lunch is on us between 11:30am and 2:30pm at most of the outlets. If you feel like extending your visit, we are based very close to the city centre with its shops, restaurants and tourist attractions all nearby.
