We hope very much that you will be able to visit during one of our open days, but if this is not possible, you are still welcome to visit the University at any time. Most colleges are open throughout the year, at least for potential applicants to walk around the grounds. Unfortunately, departments are rarely open to visitors except during open days. Please see our course pages for more on opportunities to visit subject departments. If you have questions about a particular college or department you might like to contact them before you visit as it's not always possible to arrange personal meetings, especially during term-time.
