What’s the difference between a campus tour and an Open Day?

Campus tours are small scale events designed to give you the opportunity to view our general campus facilities. We suggest attending an Open Day at the first instance to find out more about our courses, facilities and various other social and support related opportunities.

Will I have the opportunity to find out about my course?

Yes, academics will be available to talk to you about your course across our sites.

Who can attend a campus tour?

Tours are currently restricted to those applying for 2021 entry. If you are thinking of applying for 2022 entry, you can also book your place on an October or November Open Day now.

I'm interested in applying for 2022 entry. When can I visit?

If you are thinking of applying for 2022 entry, you can book your place on an October or November Open Day now.

What time does the campus tour start and finish?

The start time of the campus tour depends on the allocated time slot you select. Once you have booked on to a campus tour you will recieve a ticket via email. This will include confirmation of the date and time of your tour. You do not need to bring the ticket with you on the day. If you would like confirmation of your tour time, just get in touch by emailing visitus@chester.ac.uk

Where does the campus tour take place?

Is car parking available?

What if I can't make a campus tour?

We undertand that plans may change. If you can no longer attend the campus tour, we ask that you please let us know in advance so that we can offer your tour slot to somebody else. You can cancel your booking using the ‘View and manage your online order’ link in the ‘Order Summary’ of your ticket. Alterntaively, you can email us and we can cancel your booking for you. Please include details of the date and time of the tour that you have booked when getting in touch.

What if I am running late?

In order to ensure the safety of visitors, students and staff we have allocated you an individual time slot. We therefore ask you to arrive promptly at your registration point. Please wait in your car, or away from registration until it is your time.  

If you are running late, please call 01244 512800 or email visitus@chester.ac.uk. We will try our best to accommodate you, but this may not always be possible.  

What measures are in place to keep me safe on campus?

The safety of visitors, students and staff is our upmost priority. We have put the following procedures in place to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable visit:

• Visitors required to wear face coverings where possible inside buildings. We ask that visitors wear a 3-layer disposable surgical style mask or a 3-layer cloth reusable face covering or a 2-layer cloth cover PLUS a visor.

• Tour sizes are resitrcted to allow for social distancing. 

• Hand sanitising stations in key locations

• Staggered tour times will reduce the possibility of queues

• Contactless sign-in system

Am I required to wear a face covering?

We ask that where possible, visitors wear face coverings when inside buildings. Appropriate face coverings include either a 3-layer disposable surgical style mask or a 3-layer cloth reusable face covering or a 2-layer cloth cover plus a visor.

How many guests can I bring?

We ask that you bring a maximum of one guests in order to minimise the number of visitors at our campuses. You do not need to book a separate ticket for your guest. 

Can I get help towards travel costs for the campus tour?
