Discover our campus

Coming to see York St John University for yourself is a great way of finding out more about our courses, seeing the facilities on campus and visiting the beautiful city of York.

Whether you already have your place confirmed with us, or are considering York St John for the first time, there are opportunities to visit our campus and meet the staff and students who are proud to be a part of this University.

We host Open Days, Decision Days and Subject Showcase Days throughout the year. These are the best way to see everything the University has to offer, including accommodation sites, sports park and facilities across campus. Open Days aim to give you taste of life at York St John University and a chance to find out everything you need to know about us. 

if you can't make one of these events, you can book onto a smaller Campus Tour at any point throughout the year.

The Student Recruitment Team also host a programme of events and activities for pre-16 and post-16 applicants in schools and colleges throughout the region.
