Open Days

Travel and parking

It's best to travel to our Open Days by public transport, if possible, as car parking at the University is extremely limited. 

Getting here by train

Direct trains from London Waterloo to Guildford station take as little as 34 minutes.

Once you arrive in Guildford, hop on our Open Day shuttle bus or take a 15-minute walk to the Piazza on our Stag Hill Campus, where many Open Day activities take place.

View more information about getting here by train, including walking directions from the station or watch a video of the walk from the train station to the main campus.

Search for train times and tickets on the National Rail Enquiries website.

Free campus shuttle bus

Open Day shuttle buses between Guildford Station and Stag Hill campus run from 8am to 4:30pm.

Shuttle buses between Stag Hill campus and Manor Park campus, where you’ll find Surrey Sports Park, our newest student accommodation and the Vet School, run every 10 minutes from 8:10am to 4:25pm.

Open Day parking

We have a very limited amount of Open Day parking on our sites and expect our car parks to be full soon after opening. Roads around the campus are also likely to be very busy.

We recommend that you use public transport to travel to Guildford and the University instead of coming by car.

If you do need to drive, there are several pay-and-display car parks a short walk from our Stag Hill campus (where the majority of our main Open Day activities take place). Visitors will be directed to these once our University car parks are full, so please bring parking change with you. 

If you are using a sat nav, the postcode for the Stag Hill campus is GU2 7JP.
