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.

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.

Experience life at Surrey

From your first step on campus, you'll feel a sense of the lively social scene and strong community spirit.
