Our accommodation

We have more than 5,000 rooms of various types to suit all budgets. All our courts, as we call the halls of residence at Surrey, are self-catering with shared kitchen facilities, except for the studio flats (band F) at Manor Park.

Almost all rooms are single, although we also have 86 split-level shared rooms (called duplex rooms) in Stag Hill Court, and 40 studio flats at Manor Park that are suitable for couples.
