Campus development

The University of Surrey has over 960 acres across two main campuses, Stag Hill and Manor Park. Over 600 acres of this land is maintained as farmland, with a further 70 acres developed as the Surrey Research Park.

We are very proud of our beautiful campus which contains over 300 different types of trees and a striking selection of wildlife and waterfowl and provides a lovely environment for staff, students and visitors to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings. 

As the university expands, we are conscious of the impact that new developments have on the environment. To try and minimise this impact, we have committed to achieving a minimum BREEAM Very Good rating on new buildings.  

Our Manor Park residences were awarded a BREEAM Excellent rating and incorporate technologies such as energy efficient lighting, occupancy sensors, high levels of insulation and solar thermal hot water heating.

The Surrey Sports Park, which opened in 2010, is rated BREEAM Very Good and is powered by a biomass boiler, which uses wood chip sourced from local managed woodlands.

The 5G Innovation Centre and Veterinary School developments are both targeting BREEAM Excellent ratings and will incorporate, amongst other things, solar panels, highly efficient lighting and heating, and a ground source heat pump system.
