Guided Campus Tours

Guided campus tours are available for prospective students and their families. Tours involve a general orientation of the campus and a short visit to two residential colleges, St Margaret's and University College.

If you wish to visit other residential colleges, or if you would like to have a more detailed tour of any of our residential colleges, please contact with the individual colleges directly. Wardens/Masters would be pleased to show you through their facilities, given prior notice to ensure staff availability.
