Arriving at the department

You'll have booked to visit us 10am to 12.30pm or 2pm to 4.30pm on your offer holder day. Please arrive in good time for the start of your booked session, as we'll need to scan the QR code from your booking to register you.

Your arrival location is: Hicks building - room K14. You can view this on our interactive campus map, and there'll also be lots of open day staff and ambassadors around campus to assist you.

If you arrive late for your booked session, please report to the general information stand on the Students’ Union concourse, where event staff will be able to help.

During the booking process, the system will allow you to book a place for yourself and one guest. However, we're happy for you to bring along a second guest as well, if you'd like.

We also encourage you to take part in a range of central exhibitions and tours organised by the University and running throughout the day on campus.
