Visiting us

Nottingham is a multi campus university, and each campus has its own distinct character and identity. We welcome visitors at any time of year, whether you would like to visit the University on an official open day or campus tour day or would prefer to take advantage of our open campus policy.

If you would like to visit Sutton Bonington Campus, Jubilee Campus or the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, please contact the Enquiry Centre on +44 (0)115 951 5559.

Find out other ways to visit.

Additional events

The University hosts additional events for undergraduate students, including summer schools, masterclasses and taster days.

Those living close to Nottingham may be able to participate in outreach events and activities.


Many of the University academic schools offer their own visit days for applicants, which may be linked to formal or informal interviews – these are known as UCAS visit days.

Visits to individual schools and faculties

If you would like to visit a particular school* or Hall of Residence you should make arrangements in advance directly with the school or hall manager.

However we do recommend attending one of our open days or campus tour days.

* Please note: If you apply to the Medical School and receive an offer you will be invited to one of its subject specific open days.


If you are unable to attend an organised event, the University has an open campus policy which means you and your guests are welcome to visit the University at any time; to help with this, self-guided tour booklets (pdf) are available from the reception of the Trent Building.

Please be aware that while you are welcome to look around the departments at any time, it is not usually possible to arrange meetings with members of staff or current students outside the designated open days and visit days. Exceptions may be made in the case of prospective students currently living abroad.

Visits from schools and colleges

Each year we welcome school and college groups on to University Park Campus for general visits. We can offer welcome talks, guided tours and individual programmes tailored to suit the needs of each school.

For further information on the wide variety of activities available for school groups, please visit the schools and colleges liaison section.
