Campus tours

Campus tour Our campus tours are a great opportunity to find out more about life at our South Kensington Campus – big enough to house some fantastic facilities but not so big you will feel lost in the crowd.

You'll be guided round our South Kensington Campus by a current student so it's a chance to quiz them about their own Imperial study experience.

Our tours run most weeks throughout the year on Wednesdays at 14:00. At certain times of the year other times and days may be offered. All available tours will be listed on the booking form.

You can find a list of available dates and times on our online booking form.

Also see 'How to book' below.

Alternatively, you are welcome to visit campus using our Walking tour guide [PDF] and explore campus by yourself. Please note that this does not allow you access to all areas of campus, as some buildings require swipe card access.

We will be regularly adding more dates so keep checking back to find a slot to suit you.
