Campus tour

Campus tours are a perfect way to see what the University of Plymouth has to offer and act as a fantastic alternative to open days. 

Plymouth is a vibrant City, offering a cosmopolitan feel with a relaxed seaside ambience. The University is located within a few minutes’ walk to the town centre where many eateries and well known retailers are located. We are ten minutes’ walk from the historical Barbican and Pilgrim Father's Mayflower Steps and only a short drive to Dartmoor. Cornwall is also within 15 minutes’ drive where fabulous beaches await your visit, including Newquay and St Ives.

Campus tour – supervised or self guided?

Escorted campus tours operate on a fortnightly basis and are held on a Wednesday. Book your place on a tour

If you can't make an escorted campus tour, you can download a self-guide booklet, and can look around the University by yourself. This tour does not require a booking form.
