Open Day FAQs

Travelling by car - Open day parking 

Take advantage of free parking with a short shuttle bus journey from Norwich's Costessey Park and Ride, as parking won't be available on campus for open days. The shuttle bus will take 20 minutes (traffic permitting).

Pop the NR9 3LX postcode into your Sat Nav and there will be UEA Staff and Students to welcome you upon arrival at the park and ride, you can plan your route here.

Free shuttle buses will be running every 15 minutes from 8.00am throughout the day to and from the park and ride and campus, with the last bus leaving campus to the park and ride at 6.00pm. You don't have to book tickets for the park and ride buses.

If accessible parking is needed for a blue badge holder please email to arrange accessible parking on campus.

Arrival on campus and check in

Our Open Day runs from 08:30 to 16:00. When you arrive, head to Congregation Hall 01.19 to check in.

Bring your email confirmation so you can check in quickly. If you forget your email, don’t worry – you can still check in, but it might take slightly longer. 

You can leave any luggage in the Students’ Union, although we don’t have a designated locked room. Just ask a member of staff for help. 

You’ll also find the ‘Information Zone’ in the Student Union Building. Here, representatives from the admissions, student finance and accommodation teams will be on hand to answer your questions.

Trains and Buses

We are just 3 miles from Norwich city centre. That means a short bus or taxi ride from Norwich rail or coach station.

We've partnered with First Bus to offer you free all-day bus tickets on the city network to explore the city of Norwich for you and your guests on your open day. UEA is on Blue Line 25 and 26, with buses every 7 minutes to the city. Once you have registered you will receive an email with instructions on how to download your free bus ticket.

If you decide to travel by train, on arrival into Norwich you will be able to hop on a Blue Line 25 or 26 bus which will bring you straight to our lovely campus.
