Welfare And Support

There are a range of services to support you if you have particular requirements for accommodation.

Students with Medical Conditions

If you note on your application for accommodation that you have special requirements for medical or personal reasons, then you and your doctor or health professional will need to complete a form called the "Application for Preferential Accommodations on Medical Grounds". You can request this form from Accommodation Services. Once this form is completed, please send it to Centre for Wellbeing on campus, either by email to centreforwellbeing@surrey.ac.uk or post.

We will follow the recommendation of the Centre for Wellbeing, and we will email you with their decision at the earliest opportunity. Your application for accommodation will not be delayed while we wait for this information. If we do not receive a decision from the Centre for Wellbeing until after you are allocated then we will do our best to change your room allocation (subject to availability) if you are not allocated a suitable room, and the Centre for Wellbeing support your request.

You may have already submitted this in previous years but we do require this information to be updated each year, so please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.

Students with Financial Difficulties

If you noted on your Accommodation Application that you requested a specific price band or type of accommodation for financial reasons, please see the Student Services Centre for an "Application for Room Change on Financial Grounds".

Complete the application and return it to the Student Services Centre with the requested supporting documents either as a hard copy or a scanned attachment sent to ask@surrey.ac.uk. Please gather supporting documents relevant to your situation from the ‘Checklist’ section of the form. Student Money cannot assess your request without your documents.

If your room change is supported, Accommodation Services will contact you if and when they are able to offer you a new, cheaper room.

Whilst we will do our best to find you a suitable room, due to variable room availability no guarantees can be made regarding type of room, nor move timescale.
