Visiting the University
One of the ways you can find out more about the University is to visit us at Canterbury, or one of our other campuses**, and see for yourself.
The University's Student Recruitment Officer organises visits throughout the year. However, if you'd prefer, you could join a guided tour of the Canterbury Campus led by a student. If you're a school, college or academy in Kent and Medway email our Outreach and Partnerships Team.
It's not possible to arrange to meet staff from academic departments or view university accommodation during these visits. To do this, you will need to attend an open day or, once you have applied and been offered a place, attend a visit day.
Tours of the Canterbury Campus take place on a Monday at 1pm and Friday at 11am during term time and are strictly by prior arrangement only.
Please allow a two week notice period when arranging a tour.
Tours will normally last 45 minutes, after which you are free to explore the campus on your own or visit Canterbury.
To book a place on a tour of the Canterbury Campus, please contact the Student Recruitment Officer.
If you would prefer to visit the Canterbury Campus in your own time, we also offer self-guided campus tours. For more information, visit our self-guided tour pages.
