    Staying here on campus over Easter?

    Over the Easter holiday, the majority of University departments and services will run as normal except for a few days between Thursday 13 April and Wednesday 19 April inclusive. While the University will be quieter during the closure period, there are still plenty of services available to you.

    If something happens and you need help; support is always available Security Services and the Warden Team. You can contact your Warden by email as usual and in the case of an emergency via Security on 01483 68 3333.

    If you are ill during the closure period, you can access health services at the various Guildowns Medical Centres (contact details are available on their website). You can also dial NHS 111 for non-emergency medical help.

    The Residences Receptions will be open nearly every day for collection of post and parcels and for general enquiries about your accommodation.

    The Library will remain open throughout the Easter vacation and were are pleased to confirm that Simply Fresh will be open every day (including the Easter weekend).

     

    What else is on?

    There’s lots on to see and do in Guildford and Surrey over the Easter period and you can also find out more here.

    We have two new Enterprise cars at Manor Park and Stag Hill for students to use to go out and about. If you have not yet registered to join the student car club then you can do so via the Enterprise website quoting introductory offer STUS30.

    If you are staying with us on campus we hope you have a peaceful and relaxing time. For a full list of campus services and their opening times over the Easter break please see the Easter Campus Services page.

  • Phishing Advice

    A number of Universities have been targeted by a sophisticated phishing attack which has a very convincing email directing recipients to a website designed to steal sensitive information.

    To draw people into the scam the attackers have spoofed the sending address to appear to come from a University email address and included help desk information as well as a threat that your account will be closed to scare people into responding promptly.

    Once the link has been clicked on users are directed to a spoof website where they are asked to disclose personal information.

    Spotting Phishing

    Some common clues to help you identify a phishing email can be seen below:

    • The mail comes from an unexpected email address such as @hotmail.com or @gmail.com instead of one associated with the organisation that is claiming to be contacting you
    • It has a non-standard greeting such as Dear account user, Dear student
    • The message carries a threat or warning
    • The message warns of a big change but has no contact details for further information
    • There are spelling or grammar errors
    • When hovering over web addresses the hyperlink may not match
    • Checking the site is secure by checking that there is ‘https’ in web addresses and seeing that there is a padlock icon

    What action to take

    • Never respond to an unsolicited request for confidential information no matter how convincing.
    • If in doubt contact the organisation directly using a trusted means of communication using details from previous correspondence.
    • If you think you have received a phishing email forward it on to the IT User Support Helpdesk at usersupport@surrey.ac.uk.
    • If you have responded with your University account details change your University password immediately by visiting the University IT web pages and clicking “Password Changer” under the Quick Links section.

    Further Information

    For advice on securing your account or further information contact the IT User Support helpdesk by emailing usersupport@surrey.ac.uk or calling 01483 689898.

  • Econometrics Seminar: Tractable estimation and smoothing of highly non-linear dynamic state-space models

    23 May 2017
  • Auricular (ear) Acupuncture

    25 May 2017

    Auricular acupuncture uses the ear to release stress, promote body detoxification and enhance general feelings of relaxation and wellbeing.

    By stimulating points on the outer ear, acupuncture needles send electrical impulse messages to the brain, which then stimulates targeted body areas.

    The process itself involves the placement of up to five small, sterilised and disposable needles into designated points in each ear. The treatment takes place in a group setting.

  • How to deduce a physical dynamical model from expectation values

    25 May 2017

    In this talk, an answer will be provided to the question: “What kind of observations (i.e., expectation values) and assumptions are minimally needed to formulate a physical theory?” Our answer to this question leads to the new systematic approach of Operational Dynamical Modeling (ODM), which allows to deduce equations of motions from time evolution of observables. Using ODM, we are not only able to re-derive well-known physical theories (quantum mechanics, Koopman-von Neumann classical mechanics etc), but also solve open problems in the realm of open quantum dynamics.
