IFLA WLIC 2022

Pre-conference tour – Wednesday 20th July

Our team of Student Ambassadors will guide a small group of visitors in a walking tour around the grounds of NUI Galway to view the campus facilities, locations of academic buildings and student services and to experience what it would be like to work or study at our beautiful riverside campus. 

Campus tours will take approximately 40 minutes, with an additional 20 minutes at the end for you to chat to our student ambassadors and ask any questions you may have. 

The tours take place at 1pm and 2pm. Booking is required in advance and costs €2.00.
