    So next february I'm coming to London (I'm an International student so I haven't any experience with UK unis) for a few days and I would like to visit the Regent street campus (I already received an unconditional offer from them). Unfortunately I can't come during the next open day. I would like to know if the university (and in particular the regent street campus) is freely accessible to visit during the week? Or prospective students can visit the university and the building/campus only during open day? Do they check you at the entrance or they ask you for a badge/permit before entering?

    Yes, I'm talking about westminster and in particular the regent street campus.
    I already know when they will have their open day (I found in on their website): it's in April if I'm correct but I wanted to know if I will be able to enter and visit it by myself on a normal day. I know I will miss a lot by going alone and not during an open day but I just want to see how is the building from the inside before deciding.
    As I said I can't come during the next open day.
    Do they check the visitors at the entrance? Are only students allowed inside or anyone can come in any time?

    Oh ok cool. Yes they do, you cannot normally go inside if you dont have a ID card and if its not an open day. You will not be able to go past the barriers even if you dodge the main reception desk. I once tried going in before I was a student there, and the lady at the receptionist didnt let me, this was at cavendish btw. You could probably call them, and ask to see a tutor or something ? or check if they do booked tours ? some universities do that but not sure about westminister

    Ah ok, i see. I will try to contact them and see if something can be arranged during the few days I'm in london.

    P.S.: totally different from Italian universities, where no one checks and anyone can enter

    Yeah, it's weird they are totally open for everyone, I remember that I could even enter inside some of the classrooms while they were having lectures, since they don't check.
