Open Days

You’ll get a real feel for Portsmouth at an Open Day. Make the day your own by choosing from a packed programme of talks, tours, activities and events, with opportunities to chat to students and staff.

If you can’t make a scheduled Open Day, download our free walking tour and take yourself around our compact city centre campus. We have an open-door policy, so you can look inside buildings and speak to support services between 8:30am-4:15pm Monday-Friday.

Find out when our next Open Day is and book your place.


Student Life in Portsmouth

Portsmouth is a compact, island city that’s open to the world. As a city campus, all our teaching and most of our residences are in the centre of Portsmouth. You’ll find inspiration round every corner, and beaches and boutiques just a few steps away.

Everything’s close by in Portsmouth - historic ships, bustling shopping streets, galleries and the seafront. The city’s flat – perfect for cycling - so it’s easy to get around.

By night, Portsmouth comes alive with gigs, bars, restaurants, clubs and shows. Many students live in the resort area of Southsea and contribute to its friendly, cosmopolitan and quirky character. You can make the most of everything from summer festivals and sporting events through to winter windsurfing and lakeside picnics.


Travel information

Getting to and from Portsmouth couldn’t be easier. There are three stations close to our campus and popular residential areas. We’re well connected to London, with a fast train service taking just over an hour to reach Waterloo. There are also easy connections to Cardiff, Brighton, Bournemouth, Southampton, Winchester and some of the main London airports.

If you prefer to travel by bus, we have National Express pick-up and drop-off points around the city. The main station for local and intercity buses is at The Hard Interchange, on the edge of Portsmouth Harbour, a short walk from campus.

Travelling around Portsmouth itself is also easy. We have a free, dedicated university bus service for students and staff during term time. This loops around our campus and popular areas where students live. There are other regular bus services which cover the rest of the city and surrounding areas. Portsmouth is a bike friendly city - compact and mostly flat, so it’s easy and safe to cycle or simply walk around.
