5 things you should know about attending our open day

When you come to one of our open days, you’ll have the chance to get a real sense of whether The University of Nottingham is the right uni for you. You’re making the effort to come and visit us, so we want to make sure that you get the most out of your day.

Come with a plan…

Before anything else, make sure you know where you’re going. Whatever way you’re traveling, we’ve got lots of transport info here. Our open day guide is your bible for the day so keep it with you and use the back to make notes! You should have received one in the post along with your invitation, but if you haven’t got one you can download it online here or you can pick one up when you arrive. We also have an app to help you plan your time (search VisitUoN on your preferred app store) and you can log in using the email you gave us when you registered to attend our Open Day and the password ‘nottingham’.

Arriving on campus

You don’t need to register or sign when you arrive at University Park campus but you’ll need to register on Jubilee and Sutton Bonington campuses. Everyone loves a freebie, so remember to bring your invitation letter to hand in at one of our information points to get your free tote bag!

Dress for the occasion

British weather can be pretty unpredictable and our campuses are large and hilly in places – you might be doing a lot of walking. Make sure you wear comfy shoes and bring a coat or umbrella, just in-case.

What if I need help?

Look out for students wearing bright green t-shirts – you can’t miss them! They are on hand to answer your questions or point you in the right direction. They can also tell you what it’s really like to study and live here, so make sure you ask plenty of questions.

Don’t forget to eat!

It can be a long day and you’ll need to keep up your energy, make sure to stay hydrated. You can find something to eat and drink at one of our cafes on campus. We’ll also have a BBQ outside the Portland Building on University Park campus if the weather holds out!

Make the most of your opportunity to explore and speak to staff and students where possible. Above all, have a great day!
