Campus tours

Campus tours are an opportunity for visitors to see and get a feel for our Stag Hill campus. Tours are guided by current students who can answer questions about student life and their experiences of studying at the University of Surrey.

About our guided campus tours

Campus tours offer an introduction to the University and an opportunity to see the campus. You will also have a chance to speak with current students and admissions staff to find out more about studying at Surrey. Depending on availability, there may also be a chance to view some of the student accommodation we offer.

Tours last around 1.5 hours and take place on:

  • Wednesdays from 1pm
  • Fridays from 12pm

Book your place.

Important information for offer holders: If you have applied to the University of Surrey and hold an offer, you will be invited to an applicant day. On an applicant day you will receive a campus tour as well as a more detailed look at the department and the course you’ve applied for. Campus tours are only suitable as an introduction to the University and therefore we strongly advise offer holders to attend an applicant day rather than coming along to a campus tour.

    Other ways to see the campus

    If you are unable to attend a campus tour, there are other ways in which to get a feel for the campus.

    International students

    If you are an international student and you are arranging a visit to the UK but will not be able to make one of the Wednesday or Friday tours, we may be able to organise an individual tour with one of our student ambassadors.

    Please contact no more than one month beforehand with the dates and preferred times, and we will try our best to arrange a tour that suits your needs.

    Applicant days

    Applicants who are being considered for a place at Surrey will be invited to an applicant day. An applicant day will give you the opportunity to visit the campus and learn more about the University and the course you’ve applied for. It will include a detailed visit to the department relevant to your degree and the chance to meet academics and current students. Please note that if you submit an application for undergraduate study, you will be invited to an applicant day after your application has been processed.

    Find out more about our applicant days.

    Departmental tours

    Our Wednesday and Friday campus tours don’t include visits to specific departments. If you have not been invited to an applicant day and wish to visit a department, see specific facilities on campus or talk to a member of staff about a course you are interested in, our admissions team may be able to arrange this for you. For more information, please contact our admissions team at

    Self-guided campus tours

    Our self-guided campus tour will enable you to take yourself around campus.

    You can download the self-guided tour (PDF) or get a printed copy of the brochure from reception on the ground floor of Senate House, Monday to Friday between 8:30am and 5:30pm.

    It is advisable to follow the tour between 9am and 5pm when most University facilities will be open for you to see. You will not be able to see inside a student study-bedroom on this tour.
