What does the tour include?

We are able to offer in-person campus led by our student ambassadors. These tours will cover the whole of our main campus. The student guiding the tour will be well placed to answer any specific questions you may have – it’s worth coming prepared with a list of things you want to know more about.

When are campus tours and how to book?

We run these tours on Wednesday afternoons at 12:00. If you would like to attend a Wednesday afternoon campus tour, please register below.
Please note that due to the busy Confirmation and Clearing period, we will not be running campus tours from the 14-16 August 2024. If you are only able to visit us during this time, please take a look at our self guided campus tour.
If you are unable to attend a Wednesday tour, and another time would better suit you, please let us know by emailing with the date you would like and we will try our hardest to accommodate your request. Please give us plenty of notice.

How long is a tour?

The campus tour will last between 45 minutes and 1 hour.

Are there subject-specific visits?

Our regular campus tours do not include subject-specific visits but we are happy to try to tailor something to your requirements.
Please email your course of interest and desired time to visit to and we’ll see what we can do.
Please note that we cannot guarantee that your subject-specific request will be successful due to timetabling and course commitments.

Need an answer to a question?

If you have any specific questions about a particular course or university in general, contact– we’ll seek the answers to your questions and get back to you as quickly as we can.

Visit on your own terms

If you’re unable to make it to one of the guided campus tours, you’re always welcome to visit the campus at a more convenient time between 9:00–17:00, Monday to Friday.
Embark on your very own tour of campus at your own pace with the help of our self-guided campus tour booklet.

Make the most of your visit

Plymouth is a vibrant city that offers the best of both worlds – combining cosmopolitan energy with a serene seaside ambience.
The University’s central campus is located within a few minutes’ walk of the town centre, ten minutes’ walk of the historical Barbican and is only a short drive to Dartmoor.
