Throughout the day

Between 9am and 1pm we will be running welcome talks and various tours that you can choose to attend before you join your academic school. All the general activities are optional, but we do ask that you still arrive to register between these times. 

We know that there is a lot to fit into your day, so we will also have accommodation, sports centre and campus tours available again at the end of the day. Please note: It can also get very busy in the morning, so we recommend that you arrive in plenty of time before the first activity you would like to attend.  

Tickets are required for campus tours, city tours and presentations. Tickets are limited and will be available on the day from your registration venue on a first come first served basis. All activities are repeated, so if you miss out on your preferred time slot, there is not long to wait until the next one.

The afternoon of your day will be spent with the school or department relating to your chosen course. Details of these activities can be found on your MyNottingham account.
