Our campus

The University of Surrey’s beautiful campus offers students the best of both worlds. Our safe, relaxed campus is just ten minutes’ walk from Guildford town centre.

Surrey Garden Society

The Surrey Garden Society, formed to run the Campus Garden project in June 2014, has become the fastest growing club in the Students' Union.

Welcome to the Library & Learning Centre

The Library & Learning Centre is the academic heart of the University, which also includes the AppleSeed bookshop and a popular ground-floor meeting area.

Here you’ll find a vast collection of books and journals plus you can access the electronic collection of books and journals on or off campus. There are silent areas for individual study, communal learning zones for group work, and bookable rooms.

The Library is open daily, staying open 24 hours a day during semester and for long opening hours during vacations and outside semester weeks. We have an academic librarian for each subject area who will introduce you to the Library and help you to find and use the information resources for your academic needs.
