Guided campus tours are available for prospective students and their families weekdays between 9am and 3pm. Tours involve a general orientation of the campus and a short visit to two residential colleges, St Margaret's and University College (Unicol).
If you wish to visit other residential colleges, please contact the individual colleges directly to book a suitable time. Wardens/Masters would be pleased to show you through their facilities, given prior notice to ensure staff availability.
