Frequently asked questions
Got a question about our Open Days? You might find the answer below:
Where do I need to go?
Where you need to go depends on the subject you would like to study.
All course subjects are listed in your Open Day Planner with exact location details.
If you are interested in subjects relating to engineering, technology, science or health, please head to the City Campus on Byrom Street.
For all other subjects, including the arts, business, law and education, please register at the John Lennon Art and Design Building, which can be found on the Mount Pleasant Campus.
Can I bring friends/family with me?
Your friends and family are more than welcome to come along. However, talks can get very busy and space can become limited. Certain tours also require some walking, which small children or elderly relatives may find difficult, though in most cases a free shuttle bus will be able to transport you.
How do I get there?
Does the University provide parking?
I don't know what subject I would like to study. What should I do?
Why do I need to register?
Can I still come to the Open Day if I haven't registered?
Yes, not a problem. Head to a registration point in either the John Lennon Art and Design Building or the James Parsons Building, which can be found on Byrom Street.

The Open Day runs from 9.00am - 3.30pm. Will I need to stay all day?
An Open Day is an event just for you, which is why we think you should be able to plan your own itinerary based around the programme of activities that will be running throughout the day.
Please check your Open Day Planner for specific details so that you can attend the talks and tours you feel are most relevant to you.
There will be plenty to do during the Open Day. However, if you can only make one or two talks, or you simply want to see our student accommodation, the choice is yours.
Will I be able to see any student accommodation?
What will happen if I am late and miss my talk/tour? What should I do?
Late arrivals aren't a problem. You may miss your specific talk or tour, but staff will be available all day (9.00am - 3.30pm) in both the John Lennon Art and Design Building Market Place, and the Byrom Street Mini-Market Place.
You will be able to chat to academic and admissions staff about the full range of courses on offer, visit your student accommodation and find out about student welfare right up until 3.30pm. Check the Open Day Planner for details.
What should I do if I can't attend the Open Day?
Where can I get a cup of coffee or some lunch?
Refreshments will be available in various locations, from Liverpool John Moores University cafes to Starbucks. Details can be found in your Open Day Planner.
If you would like to try somewhere else on your way to a faculty building, or perhaps on a self-guided walk to view accommodation, there are plenty of excellent options in Liverpool. Use the map in your Open Day Planner to help you explore.
What else is there to do in Liverpool?
Liverpool was recently voted the third best city in the world to visit (Rough Guides) and there are plenty of things to see and do during your visit.
You can head to the Albert Dock, check out Tate Liverpool or explore one of Liverpool’s many museums. Or why not spend your afternoon shopping?
Have a look at Visit Liverpool if you’re stuck for ideas, or take a City Tour as part of your Open Day event. Details for the City Tour trips can be found in your Open Day Planner.
