If you are coming by car on Sunday 9 July, on entering the campus please follow the orange signs directing you to registration. Members of staff will be there to sign you in and give you your room key; from there our student ambassadors will take you to your halls of residence. Please arrive between 4.00pm and 5.00pm, so that you have time to unpack your belongings and have a hot meal before joining the evening events.
On Monday 10 July we invite parents/carers to join us for tea and cake from 2.30pm. The Harper Adams Experience will end at 3.30pm and you will be free for collection or departure at that time.
