Student Life Mentoring


Student Life Mentoring provides a proactive support service to new students at the University of Surrey who are living in University Accommodation. 

Student Life Mentors are students themselves who visit students each week to have a chat, offer advice and give updates on what's happening at Surrey. Their aim is to make sure that other students have the best possible experience living in the courts of residence.

For more information about Student Life Mentoring please see our Mid Year Report for 2016/17 below.

Student Life Mentors are allocated to new students at the University of Surrey (who are living in University accommodation) only. This includes first year undergraduates as well as first year postgraduates. If, however, you are a continuing student living in accommodation and feel you may benefit from having a Mentor you can opt into the service by emailing the Student Life Team:

Mentors work on a rotational shift system five days a week (Monday to Friday) between 18:00-21:00 during weeks 0-10 in Semester One, and weeks 1-8 in Semester Two. Mentors visit each flat and can  be contacted via telephone during shift time only. At Hazel Farm Mentors work Monday to Thursday.

Off Campus Student Life Mentoring

Student Life Mentoring also provides a proactive support service to any University of Surrey student living off campus in rented accommodation. The Mentors specialise in facilitating mediations between housemates when there may be a dispute or conflict of interests.

If you live off campus you can request to meet with a Mentor at either Battersea Court Reception, Manor Park Reception, or the Hazel Farm Common Room during these times to discuss any issues you may have. To book a meeting with a Mentor please email
