Your Accommodation

Living in University accommodation is a core part of your student experience and we have a range of services to help you settle in and get the most out of your time in residences.  Please use the menu on the left to explore the services available to you.


Each court of residence has a warden team who are responsible for residents’ welfare and for disciplinary matters within University Accommodation. We each have a day-job within the University but outside of that, we live amongst you in the courts and are available to support you at any time during your stay here on campus.

The Student Life Mentoring service provides proactive support to new students to ensure you transition into University and enjoy your student experience. 

A team of 55 mentors visit new student mentees regularly, providing peer help, support and information whenever needed. If mentors can't help directly they'll refer you to other support services which can. 

University of Surrey International Guarantor Scheme (USIGS)

The University is launching a Guarantor Scheme for international and home students who are unable to secure private rented sector accommodation because they don't have a UK based guarantor. The USIGS is expected to open in the Summer Term (2016) and a launch date will be published on this page. For more information click here.

Housing Advice

Housing issues will always arise therefore our Housing Advice service aims to provide confidential, non-judgemental support and advice to all students. Here you can find information and get advice on deposits, tenancy agreements, council tax and you can also find advice on handling problems with your landlord to ensure your tenancy arrangement goes smoothly.
