Campus Tours

Join us for a Waterside campus tour

Attending a campus tour is a great way to see our facilities and get a feel for what it’s like to study at UON.

Campus tours run every week on Wednesday’s. Please note dates for booking are released on a biweekly rolling basis.

If Wednesday’s don’t suit, or if you would like a bespoke campus tour to see your course facilities, drop us an email at and we will do our very to best to book you in. We typically need at least two full working days notice and can offer tours Monday – Friday 9.30am – 4pm.

Tours take approximately 1 hour (bespoke tours may take longer) and spaces are limited as we keep tour group numbers small. Information about how to get to our campus will be sent to you in your booking confirmation.

Campus tours are not full open days. Visit our open day page for upcoming dates and more information.

Accessible events

We endeavour to make all our events completely accessible. However, if you have any specific needs or require additional facilities, please inform us on 01604 892568 or so we can ensure your visit is as easy as possible.

What can I expect from a campus tour?

A campus tour is a fantastic opportunity to really get to grips with what life at the University of Northampton is like.  As well as showing you our purpose built campus, we want to make sure your course queries are covered. Where possible we will try to arrange for an ambassador studying your subject of interest to lead your tour.

So that we can do our best to arrange this, make sure you tell us what you would like to study when you book.  You can browse our courses on our website. If we can’t arrange a subject specific tour guide, we will offer to arrange for someone from the course to contact you at a time to suit.

If you would like to speak to a member of our student services team or a course academic during your visit, please email to discuss further. In some instances where face to face meetings aren’t possible during the tour, follow up phone calls will be arranged so we can ensure all your questions are answered.

We have a show room of our large en-suite Waterside accommodation on site. During your campus tour, you will have the chance to see these in person. You can also see our full range of accommodation on our virtual 360 tour.

Can’t travel to campus?

If you cannot come onto the campus to visit us, try our Virtual Tour. This will give you the opportunity to explore our campus, facilities and accommodation from the comfort of your own home.
