About 200 student stewards, wearing red T-shirts, will be on hand to help visitors find their way around the university.
Lorraine Norman, the university's undergraduate events officer, said: "Open days like this are the perfect opportunity to find out about the university, meet our students and staff, and see what we have to offer. We decided to hold the open day on a Saturday in response to visitor feedback and we're pleased that the event has proved extremely popular."
