Student life

At the University of Surrey, we’ll inspire you to see the world differently and to experience everything student life has to give.

We offer the best of both worlds, a friendly campus university set in beautiful countryside, with the convenience and social life of bustling Guildford on your doorstep.

September 2020 update

We are looking forward to welcoming you here to campus in September, with your safety as our top priority. We’ll be delivering a hybrid model, with face-to-face teaching for most seminars, workshops and practical sessions, supported by online learning and assessments. Lectures will be recorded and available online.

We are following sector guidance on how we ensure a safe living experience including minimising crowded areas through queuing systems and signage.

But if you can’t get here don’t worry – we’re doing all we can to make sure you have a great Surrey experience wherever you are.

Find out about our plans for teaching and learning from Lucy Evans, Chief Student Officer.

Experience Surrey first-hand

These moments matter

Your time at university will be made up of a series of moments. These moments, big or small, academic or personal, will come together to form an unforgettable experience.

Get involved

Whether you want help discovering your dream job or are interested in free extracurricular courses to enhance your employability prospects, we’re here to help.

Your union, your voice

The University of Surrey Students' Union is run by students for students. You will automatically become a member of the Students' Union on enrolment which allows you to enjoy all of the great services and events it has to offer.
