Self-guided Campus Tours

If you would like to go on a self-guided Campus Tour, please head to Main Reception between 8am-5pm, Monday to Friday and pick up a map for the campus. We also have an audio tour that you can download using the VoiceMap App and searching for 'University of Winchester'.

Please note, there is no parking on campus for visitors so you will need to use public car parks, public transport or the Park and Ride.

Frequently asked questions

What are you putting in place to make the visit Covid safe?

With the ongoing pandemic, we require proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test within the 24 hours prior to your tour and to be able to enter student accommodation. This can either be shown on the NHS testing app or by showing us the plastic results indicator (test cassette) from your Lateral Flow Test. This measure is necessary to keep our visitors, students, and staff safe.

During your visit to us, we are putting in place a number of measures to ensure the safety of everyone involved:

  • All tours will have a maximum of two households per tour.
  • The Student Ambassadors and staff at each checkpoint will be maintaining and encouraging social distancing at all times.
  • There are several hand sanitiser dispensers around campus that visitors are welcome to use.
  • Only critical on-site services and buildings will be open to decrease the number of touch points.
  • Some buildings will have a one-way system and all will have clearly marked social distancing measures.

Will I be able to see inside all buildings?

Only critical on-site services and buildings will be open which may mean there are some buildings you will not see inside as part of the tour.

Where do I go when I arrive/what are the parking arrangements?

When you arrive at the University, (Sparkford Road, SO22 4NR) head to the Main Car Park where we are providing free parking. Once you have parked, follow the signs to the stairs and turn right into The Stripe. On the campus map, the car park is situated between building 25 and Milnthorpe Lane.

How many people will be on the tour group?

Each group will have a maximum of two households per tour.

Do I have to wear a face covering?

Masks that cover your nose and mouth will be required in communal indoor spaces and in student accommodation.

Will there be anywhere to purchase refreshments?

A limited number of on-campus cafés will be open for the purchase of drinks and light snacks but due to health and safety precautions, we will be unable to refill reusable water bottles. However, you are able to make use of a number of refill stations around campus.

Do I need to wear a face covering?

Following the latest guidance, masks that cover your nose and mouth will be required in communal indoor spaces and in lectures.
