The historic Market Square building is now being run by the university as an information centre for prospective students. In the future there are plans to run courses there too.
Last week the refurbished Shire Hall opened its doors to the public following refurbishment. Much of the art gallery space has been retained, as have the original law courts.
On Thursday town centre visitors also got a taste of what the university has to offer, with a series of exciting science displays.
Staff are also gearing up for one of their busiest days of the year on Thursday, when A Level students receive their results, as they will be assisting those seeking university places through the clearing process.
