Campus tours

Guided tours of the University of Surrey

Guided campus tours run every Wednesday. There are two tours to choose from;

1pm Tour and Talk – This guided campus tour leaves from Senate House at 1pm and last approximately one hour. There is an optional short welcome talk and Q&A (30 mins) afterwards in the Austin Pearce Building - Lecture Theatre 3&4. This will be presented by a member of staff and student ambassadors will be on hand to answer any questions you might have.

2pm Talk and Tour –  This option starts at 2pm with a short welcome talk and Q&A (30 mins) in the Austin Pearce Building - Lecture Theatre 3&4.  This will be presented by a member of staff and student ambassadors will be on hand to answer any questions you might have. Following this session we will take guests on a guided campus tour for one hour.

These campus tours are an excellent opportunity to see the facilities and services that we offer here at the University, as well as look the chance to view some of the student accommodation on our Stag Hill campus. The tours will normally be guided by current students, who can answer questions about student life and their experiences of learning at Surrey
