Science & Engineering Day will be taking place on Highfield Campus (SO17 1BJ) and Boldrewood Innovation Campus (SO16 7PP).

Parking will be limited on site, so where possible we ask you to travel by foot, bike or bus. We will once again be running a prize draw - travel sustainably and you will be eligible to enter. Simply fill in the competition entry slip when checking in at the registration desk and you will be in for a chance to win a fantastic LEGO set.

For visitors familiar with the campus: please note that the top half of Salisbury Road (leading to Lovers Walk on the edge of the Common) is currently closed due to building works. Activities in Bldgs 53 and 59 will be accessible from the north (Burgess Road) side of these buildings and from the south side via walkways at the end of 59. Building 58 is not accessible from Salisbury Road due to the closure – please use the Level 1 entrance on the south side of 58 for very easy access to activities there.
