Campus tours

For students from outside Northern Ireland who are unable to attend the Open Days, we are happy to organise private guided tours of our campus and facilities.

Your guide for this campus tour will be a member of our #loveQUB team – a current undergraduate student from England, Scotland or Wales.

Your tour will begin outside the Lanyon building and will include visits to the following:

  • The McClay Library‌
  • Queen's Sport’s Physical Education Centre in Botanic Gardens
  • The Elms Village, which offers guaranteed accommodation to first year students from England, Scotland and Wales

Talk to us about your chosen subject

We can also arrange for you to discuss your subject of interest with a member of staff from the relevant department (please note that your subject-specific meeting and campus tour are only confirmed when you receive an email from us.)

Times and dates

Please feel free to bring along friends and family. Campus tours are offered Monday to Friday, with the exception of University holidays, and normally begin at 12 noon.

We will, however, always try to accommodate you if you cannot visit us at these times. Please let us know at least two weeks before you would like to visit us.
