The best things about Surrey

From making lifelong friends to discovering new interests, current students share some of their best experiences at the University of Surrey.

Our campus

Our self-contained student community is just ten minutes’ walk from Guildford town centre.

University of Surrey Students' Union (USSU)

All University of Surrey students automatically become members of the Students' Union on enrolment.

The Students' Union is an independent charity led by sabbatical officers who represent Surrey students.


From working with the local community to raising money for several charities, volunteering is at the heart of our Students' Union activities.
