University of Surrey


The University of Surrey is one of the UK’s top professional, scientific and technological universities. With students from over 120 different countries, they’re proud to be one of the most culturally-diverse universities in the UK. Named as both 'University of the Year' and 'University of the Year for Student Experience' in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016, Surrey has a world-class profile and a leading reputation in teaching and research.

The University of Surrey’s beautiful campus offers students the best of both worlds. The safe, self-contained student community is just ten minutes’ walk from Guildford town centre and it takes just 34 minutes to reach London. Since 2000, the estate has been transformed through a £400 million building development and improvement programme – including £130 million on student accommodation, £36 million on Surrey Sports Park, £16 million on the new Library and Learning Centre and £4.5 million on the Ivy Arts Centre.
