University Park Campus guided tours
At 330 acres, University Park Campus is very large. Therefore, we are providing you with the option of two guided tours led by current University of Nottingham students who will show different areas of the campus to reflect your area of interest:
Tour one covers Zone 2 for Arts, Law and Social Science courses and starts outside the Hallward Library (no. 9 on the map). Just come along at any point between 9.30am and 4pm.
Tour two covers Zones 3 for Science and Engineering courses and starts outside the George Green Library (no. 4 on the map). The tours run throughout the day as for Zone 2.
Tours take approximately 45 minutes and include an overview of general facilities available to support your studies. Accommodation is not included as part of the tour, as visitors are free to visit any of the halls of residence listed for both University Park and Jubilee campuses, for a hall tour.
