Visiting the Colleges

See our living, working academic communities

Colleges welcome members of the public to visit throughout the year.  From this page, you can find details of how to reach individual Colleges, book bed and breakfast accommodation for a 'behind the scenes' experience at different times of year, and learn about Colleges' opening times and admissions charges, where these apply.

If you are a prospective student and would like to visit on one of the collegiate University's Open Days, you can find more information on our page on community engagement.
