Campus-based Open Days

We can't wait to show you around so you can see how you can #BelongAtBU. To help plan your visit, you'll find all the information you need below.

If you've registered for our campus event on Saturday 15 June, we'll update this page with all your arrival instructions nearer the time. Please note that our Design & Engineering courses will not be represented at this Open Day. Instead, there is a Design & Engineering Open Day on Saturday 22 June 2024, which is part of the Festival of Design & Engineering. Please book this Open Day if you are interested in studying Design & Engineering.

Virtual Open Days

If you've registered for a virtual event, we’ll email you a link to access the content, including our live stream and chatroom, as well as live welcome and subject panels. 

Meanwhile, there’s a sample of on-demand content below so you can discover more of BU.

Explore our accommodation options 

You can see just some of the accommodation you could be living in through our film, ‘At home with BU’. We’ve also got a range of student-led tours to give you an inside-take on what it’s like to live in student accommodation with us.

Campus and local area tours 

We’re not just located in a beautiful part of the world – our campuses and facilities are pretty special too. This includes the brand new Poole Gateway Building (opened in 2020 and home to facilities including TV studios, music production and computing spaces), and the Bournemouth Gateway Building (the new, state-of-the-art home of the Faculty of Health & Social Sciences). You can see some of these spaces below and find out more about living and studying in Bournemouth from our students.
