WIT Autumn Open Days location - WIT Arena

Self guided campus tours

WIT's Autumn Open Days take place in the WIT Arena. This two day open event is extremely busy, therefore we recommend booking a tour of the main campus at another time. Our campus tours are very popular and can be booked anytime on our tours webpage or by email Denise Breen at [email protected]. However, you can tour the campus on open day by doing a tour with our student ambassadors or taking a self guided tour. You can download this in advance pdf WIT self guided tour.


Campus tours for school groups

We can accommodate school group tours of the main campus on the day if you require them. However, please be advised that campus tours can take up a lot of time on the day. Tours take approx 40 minutes although they can be longer if there are specific areas you would like to see. Please let your Student Ambassador tour guide know your time restraints/interests at the start of the tour. You can also download our self guided tour in advance pdf WIT self guided tour.

If you wish to book a tour for your school group, you can do so by filling that section in on our event booking form on the next tab or by emailing [email protected].

Schools arriving by bus are advised to complete the tour of the main campus on their way to or from the WIT Arena. The tour start location is marked on the map below and buses should enter the main campus at the AIB Bank entrance on Browne's Road, park to the left of the button roundabout and exit at the main roundabout on Browne's Road.

Student Ambassadors will meet you at the location below. Please note it will be very obvious from the bus drop-off point - just look for a bright WIT tent.
