Top tips for your Surrey Open Day

Plan your journey

Make sure you leave plenty of time to get here, but don’t worry - you don’t need to arrive on campus at a specific time. Read our advice on travelling to an Open Day and information for disabled visitors.

Remember to check in

When you arrive, please head to the Check-in points on our Stag Hill campus where you can hand in your ticket (which you'll be sent via email and need to print at home) and collect your Open Day bag and map.

Check-in points are located on the Piazza and at the University's back entrance, by Yorkies Bridge (which you'll pass if you walk to the University from the town centre or station).

Visiting the Vet School?

If you’re a prospective Vet School student, please go straight to our Manor Park campus and check in at our Vet School main building. Find out more about our Vet School Open Day.

Choose your talks

Browse our undergraduate subject talks and tours and make a note of the ones you want to attend. We run two or three talks for each subject per day.

Take a moment to relax

With so much to see, it’ll be a busy day - but try to leave enough time to sit back with a drink or a bite to eat so you can soak up the Open Day atmosphere. If you have time between talks and tours, don’t forget to stroll down to the Stag Hill campus lake, set in our beautiful landscaped grounds.

Explore Guildford

Once you’ve finished your Open Day, why not head into Guildford? The shops, sights, restaurants and cafés are only a short walk from campus, or you could hop on the free shuttle bus and stroll from the station.
