Open Days

When are the next Open Days?

In light of the latest advice about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, all face-to-face outreach activities and events organised by the University have been cancelled until the end of December 2020.

Virtual Open Days, 2 & 3 July 2020

The in-person Cambridge Open Days have been cancelled. However, we are excited to announce that we will be delivering Virtual Open Days on 2 and 3 July 2020.

The July Virtual Open Days are aimed at prospective applicants in Year 12 (or equivalent) and prospective mature applicants (aged 21 or over), together with any parents or supporters. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore our University and Colleges virtually and get an insight into what it is like to be a student at the University of Cambridge.

If you would like to attend our Virtual Open Days, please book a place here.  Information on the Trinity specific events is available here.

What happens at an Open Day?

At Trinity, the programme includes a talk by the Admissions Tutor and an opportunity for you to meet members of the teaching staff in the subject or subjects that interest you. There is plenty of chance for you to ask all the questions you may have. You can also look around the College, have lunch here, and meet some of our students. Please note there is no particular dress code for the Open Days at Trinity. You are encouraged to dress comfortably.

If I visit the College, will I be able to see a student room?

Yes, a couple of bedrooms will be available for visitors to see at Open Days. Unfortunately we can’t arrange this at other times – students are living in them! But do take a look at the Undergraduate Accommodation page:

Do I have to book a place at an official Trinity Open Day?

Yes. Places are limited. Booking is essential and begins in February each year. An online booking form is available here.  If you book a place, you will be sent further information regarding the event by email closer to the time. This information will include a programme for the day and a map and directions.

Please note: We regret that we are unable to take bookings for accompanying parents because of the limit on places available, but they are welcome to look round the College.

In addition to our College Open Days, Trinity will also be holding a variety of events on other dates; the details will be published here as soon as they become available.

If I can’t come to an Open Day, can I visit the College at another time?

The College is currently closed to visitors due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
