We will visit several contrasting university campuses, where site visits and presentations on strategic approaches to accommodation, residence life, catering, retail and sport will spark ideas and inspiration to take back to your university. There is time to get to know other tour participants and free time to explore the historic cities of Dublin and Belfast, where you'll be based.
Take the full tour including the CUBO Summer Conference, or join the study tour only.
