Campus Tours

Prospective students and their family members take a tour of the campus with a student guide, seen here near the Catalyst building.

Our campus tours are currently postponed in line with government advice, however you can take an online tour of the campus from our virtual open day pages. We are continuing to take bookings for campus tours and open days later in 2021 and will advertise further events for both enquirers and offer holders when they are able to safely go ahead.

Campus tours, led by a student guide, provide a great opportunity to see Edge Hill University’s award-winning campus for yourself and get a taste of what the student experience here is like.

The next campus tours are scheduled to take place on the following dates:

  • Thursday 25 March 2021 – Fully Booked
  • Thursday 8 April 2021 – Fully Booked
  • Thursday 22 April 2021 – Fully Booked

Tours are available on each date starting at 12:30pm, 1pm, 1:30pm, 2pm, 2:30pm and 3pm.

By joining a tour, you will discover why the campus has been ranked best in the North West and in the top five in the UK for university facilities (WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2020) and been recognised as one of the world’s best green spaces for nine successive years (Green Flag Award 2020).

Pre-booking is essential and places are limited due to social distancing guidelines. Each tour will be limited to one prospective student and up to four guests who must all be from the same household or support bubble. Your tour group will not include any other households. A maximum of seven separate tours will commence at each advertised start time.

All tours will depart from Main Reception and last approximately one hour. The tour route is mainly outdoors, and you will be asked to wear a face covering when inside. Access to some buildings may be restricted and it will not be possible to view inside our accommodation.
