Campus and location
The University of Surrey’s beautiful campus offers students the best of both worlds. Our safe, self-contained student community is just ten minutes’ walk from Guildford town centre, named the eighth best place to live in the UK in the Halifax Quality of Life Survey 2015.
It takes just 34 minutes to reach London from Guildford station. Whether heading up for a show, a sightseeing tour, a night on the town or a spur-of-the-moment day trip, Guildford is an ideal base for exploring the city.
