Plan your day

Please note you will need to bring your Eventbrite ticket with you on the day, either on a device or printed.

Arrival and registration

On arrival in Cardiff, please make your way to the reception at the University’s Main Building and collect an information pack. The information pack will include a prospectus, Open Day programme and a map.

Staff and students (wearing University t-shirts) will also be available as you arrive to provide further advice and guidance.

There are entrances to the University Main Building from both Museum Avenue and Park Place.

What's on

The programme will be available closer to the date of our next Open Day.

Getting around

All buildings on the Cathays Campus are within easy walking distance of each other. We also run a free shuttle bus services between the following locations throughout the day:

  • University Main Building (Museum Avenue) to Talybont Student Residences
  • Heath Park Campus and University Main Building (Park Place) to Trevithick.


We aim to provide an accessible environment for all applicants, students and visitors. If you or any member of your party have special requirements we will accommodate additional requirements.

Heath Campus Schools

Visitors interested in Healthcare Sciences, Medicine and Dentistry are kindly asked to make their way to the Cathays Park Campus where most open day activities are based. Staff from the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry and Healthcare Sciences will be available in Main Building.

Shuttle buses will be available from Horseshoe Drive at Main Building from 09:30-14:45 to take visitors to the Heath Campus for tours.

Please note that the University Dental Hospital is closed at weekends, so tours of the School of Dentistry will not be available on Saturday Open Days. Learn about the School of Dentistry's Open days.
