About University of Surrey

Welcome to the University of Surrey, a global community of more than 16,000 students from 140 countries.

We’re based in the popular town of Guildford, just 35 minutes from central London by train. Our beautiful, green campus is home to outstanding learning, laboratory and simulation facilities in every faculty, plus a comprehensive range of student services, a wide choice of accommodation and dedicated support for international students, to help you make the most of your university life.

Our goal is to provide a challenging and rewarding university experience that creates incredible memories and helps you achieve your ambitions, while building friendships and connections that will last a lifetime. According to the latest UK National Student Survey, we’re succeeding, with an overall satisfaction score of 85.3 per cent putting us fourth in the UK.

A lot of that is to do with our courses, which offer real flexibility to personalise your degree. Some of it reflects life on campus, with 170+ clubs and societies, the world-class facilities at Surrey Sports Park including a 50m swimming pool and 120-station gym, and a great choice of places to eat, drink and hang out.

  With so much happening on campus, it’s easy to see why so many students want to live here. There are more than 6,000 study-bedrooms on campus, at least half of which have an en-suite shower and toilet. There are choices to suit all budgets and requirements and you’re guaranteed university accommodation in your first year as long as your application arrives on time.

That gives you the chance to settle in and become part of our global community of students and staff. It’s a warm, welcoming and open place to study, make connections and create memories.
