Visit UCLan

Discover our Preston Campus

Campus Tours

Our student-led Campus Tours and Campus Tour Extra are an ideal way to get a feel for our Preston Campus – if you can’t get to an Open Day, or just fancy a more informal look around.

Our students will show you around our compact city campus, from our fantastic student social spaces to state-of-the-art buildings including our purpose-built on campus sports centre or one of our accommodation flats.

They’re the perfect opportunity to get more of a sense of UCLan, and you can get answers to all the questions you really want to ask from our current students.

Please note booking is essential, bookings close 10 days before the tour so that we can connect you with the right course tutor.
