Plan ahead! To get the most of the day, look through the open day programme and decide which tours and activities you want catch. You can also download our mobile app by searching VisitUon in App Store or Google Play. Win again!


Our campuses are pretty big and hilly in places, so wear some comfy footwear. And remember we’re dealing with the British weather here; bring a rain coat or umbrella just in-case and some sun cream in case the sunshine makes a surprise appearance. Still winning!


Keep fed and watered! We’ve got loads of cafes on campus, so you’ve got no excuse. Plus, weather permitting; there will also be a BBQ outside Portland Building on University Park Campus – that’s number 15 on the map! BBQ = win!


Most of all, have fun! There’s no such thing as a silly question, so ask lots. If you need any help, look for someone in a bright green t-shirt, you can’t miss them! Having a good day means… you guessed it, you’re winning!
