About Guildford - University of Surrey

University of Surrey is based in Guildford, the historical and vibrant county town of Surrey. It has all the richness and amenities of a city yet remains compact enough to explore and enjoy with ease. Amongst the streets and lanes around the cobbled High Street awaits a wealth of history to discover, making it an ideal setting for learning.

The campus is located close to the lively and vibrant city centre. The bus stop is located on campus along with an onsite café, bank and shop. There are also expansive gardens and outdoor areas.
