Campus service opening times

The majority of our services, buildings and spaces are now open! If the situation changes in response to the pandemic, we will provide updates on this page.

You are required to wear a face covering in all shared indoor University spaces, including while moving through buildings and within teaching, learning and study environments. In some exceptional circumstances a face covering will not be required: these circumstances are outlined in our face coverings policy.

Please pay attention to our Covid-secure signage around campus. In accordance with UK government guidance, the University has taken action to reconfigure spaces to create appropriate social distancing at 2m (where this is viable) or at 1m with added risk mitigation measures in place. All measures have been implemented following formal risk assessment. 

There are a number of outlets on campus where we are required to track people’s attendance – such as catering outlets – because it will help with contact tracing should we get positive cases. Please scan QR codes when asked to do so, or use your University cards for entry, as this will help us keep you informed should we need to support Public Health England with contact tracing.

The Library is open 24/7. Visit the MySurrey Library pages for more information.
