20th September 2000




Over 1,000 visitors are expected at the Lincoln campus of the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside on Saturday (23rd September).


The university’s open day in September is normally the best attended of the year, as this is the time when thousands of students across the country start to think about their university options after A-levels.


Staff at the university expect to welcome 500 students and their friends and relatives for an open day which runs from 10am until 3pm at the Brayford campus.


Welcome talks take place in the main lecture theatres at 10.30am and 12.30pm, and for the rest of the day prospective students can tour the campus with staff and student ambassadors, have a look at the accommodation available and talk to academics about the courses on offer.


For the first time this year visitors will also be able to tour the new £5.5 million science facility and check on the progress of the £5.5 million sports centre which is close to completion.


“The university’s Lincoln campus is growing all the time, and as we enter our fifth year the facilities on campus keep getting better and better,” commented education liaison manager Jacqueline Mayer.


“If you’re due to take your A-levels this year, or if you’d just like to find out more about your local university, feel free to come along on Saturday.”


Visitors will find car parking space available at the temporary car park off Ropewalk. For disabled parking on campus, or for more information about the open day, contact Jacqueline Mayer on 01522 886046.
