Vet School open day travel and parking

We have a very limited amount of open day parking on campus so we recommend that you use public transport to travel to the University instead of coming by car.

Travelling to the Vet School by train

Direct trains from London Waterloo to Guildford station take as little as 34 minutes.

Search for train times and tickets on the National Rail Enquiries website.

Once you arrive in Guildford, hop on our free open day shuttle bus or take a 15-minute walk to the Piazza on our Stag Hill campus. From the Piazza, you can then catch the free Manor Park shuttle bus to the Vet School open day.

Shuttle buses run from around 8am to 4pm.

Vet School parking

If you do need to drive to the Vet School open day, please head to Manor Farm car park. The car park is around five minutes’ walk from our main Vet School building on Manor Park campus.

When this car park is full, you will be directed to local pay-and-display car parks in Guildford town centre, so please bring parking change with you. From these car parks, you can walk to the train station and catch the free shuttle bus to Stag Hill Piazza or take a 15-minute walk on to Stag Hill campus. At Stag Hill Piazza, hop on the free shuttle bus going to Manor Park campus and Vet School open day.

Please note: Open day car parking is not available in the Surrey Sports Park car park. This car park is for limited stay only and camera controlled. 

Parking for disabled visitors 

If you need a disabled parking space, please ask a parking marshal when you arrive at Manor Farm car park. They'll then direct you to the most suitable place to park.

View more information for open day visitors with disabilities or special access requirements.


Unfortunately, we do not have a left luggage facility on campus and you will need to keep all personal belongings with you at all times.


Please do not bring pets with you to this event as we are unable to allow them inside the Vet School Buildings.
