Plan your day
We recommend you allow at least four hours for your visit so you can make the most of the open day.
Our open days will give you a real taste of studying and living at Surrey. You will have the opportunity to explore your subject of interest by attending subject talks and tours, talk to teaching staff and current students, as well as view student accommodation and tour our campus.

Accessible routes and accommodation
Our Stag Hill campus is quite large and includes some steep inclines. We suggest allowing plenty of time to get from one open day activity to another.
Staff at the dedicated information point on the Stag Hill campus piazza will be able to provide you with information on the most accessible routes around campus and answer any questions you may have. We can also provide wheelchairs on request.
