I love studying at University of Surrey! There is so much to do in this wonderful Guildford town. So many benefits about the location e.g. London only being 20 minutes away on the train! The facilities, societies, events, environment, people are all so amazing! It's a very multi cultural university so no matter from what country you come from you know that you'll fit right in! So many great opportunity on and off campus to develop many skills and as a person. I couldn't recommend it more. The structure of courses are excellent and the university really does try help you with any problems, from Student Finance support, finical help to personal issues such as mental disorders and counselling.

Q&A


Q
Hi there, I have applied to the University of Surrey but wanted to find out more about the accommodation: having read the reviews for each of the individual halls, I just wanted to ask, is it better to go for a more social setting on the campus and go for less modern accommodation, or apply for the more modern accommodation, and does it really matter where you're situated on the University campus...

I'm not sure who would give Surrey a solid review. The university takes on too many students, and doesn't prioritise spending. They'd rather spend money on sticky blobs to go on the floor to "show freshers where to go" rather than actually build some (by some I mean lots of) accommodation at band B. This means students are pushed into a very expensive private sector, where its common to spend over £500pcm before bills on a low quality house, with private rent prices also rising (mine and others' rent prices are up 19% next year!). The social side is dire. Very few and expensive clubs (tho the spoons is actually quite good), and also a lacking of societies compared to other universities. Overall the university just feels quite empty as not much is usually happening. End of year show tickets average £20 per night, so when people just want to celebrate exams finishing they get rinsed in the process. The Surrey sports park is pretty good and is good value, but the gym is often full.

The university forces students to pay for overpriced private accommodation, as they accept more students than they can house and most of these foreign students. This means first and final year British students do not get given accommodation and are forced to pay exessive rates. The students union is corrupt and since leaving the NUS has hiked prices in its on site club The process for creating a society is also incredibly corrupt, as greedy societies block new societies to keep money Overall, teaching is great, management is appauling.

Very expensive to live in Guildford and the SU is an absolute rip-off; the only financially viable place to drink is Wetherspoons and the nightlife is dire. Campus is great with plenty of green space and an ok library. Sports park is brilliant but it is a 20 minute walk from campus and they only offer annual student membership which works out quite expensive if you decide to go home in the holidays. Would not recommend unless you have a very good reason to go to Surrey.

The Students Union put on a lot of great events throughout the year, so social life is fantastic. There's also a large range of clubs and societies to join. However, some things are not to as high a standard as they should be, for example, the union website, the email system, SurreyLearn VLE or accommodation. WiFi is fast all across campus, and the facilities are generally very good. The campus is also very pretty and close to the town centre. However, bear in mind that the town centre is not that big, but you do have good access to London & Reading.

I did not really find most of the lecturers helpful. And the university is very poor at resolving student problems. I don't know if it's a personal vendetta with me but I have been waiting on a response on my thesis for more than 6 months now. And no one has cared to get back to me despite my emails. If you are an international student I will highly recommend you do not get involve with this university

surrey was never my first choice and I for the life of me have no idea why not, I absolutely love it here! It's only been one semester but I have the best group of friends and the worlds greatest flatmates. The music scene isn't really my taste but they've had at least 7 RnB/Rap/hip hop events in 11 weeks so I can't complain. I'd reccomend everyone to come.

Hazel farm campus is amazing! Apart from the fact you have to get up a little earlier to catch the bus, it's feels more independent than being on uni grounds all of the time

Fantastic university. Love it. Only critique is that halls could have common areas/room within the block/houses or at least a sofa.

The uni in itself is almost perfect. A quiet town but close enough to london that a weekend away is the simplest thing to plan.

Surrey has a great university feel to it, with a lot of great facilities on campus. My biggest issue is the distance between the academic stag hill campus, and the sports park, tescos and additional residences on manor park campus.

The student nights are good, Rubix isn't for all though. Best nights are the headphone disco and paint vs foam. Some good acts like Lethal Bizzel. Wide range of clubs and societies, there is something for everyone. Campus isn't that big compared to other unis, club on site (Rubix) and several bars. Gym is located at the SSP which is a 20 minute walk from campus, tescos is a 15 minute walk away. Near to town and the station as well.

A very nice university situated not far from London. A very quite and safe place to stay. The university itself is very green and is quite small, so very easy to move around.

Very glad I chose Surrey. Excellent facilities and the placement year is an excellent opportunity to gain good work experience before graduation. Internet speed is poor and difficult to connect on some devices. Students' Union focused on nights out, could be more for people who want more than clubbing.

As much as I've wanted to have the fairy tail uni experience, numerous things about Surrey have somewhat prevented that from happening. 1) Although accommodation quality is 1st rate, I was (as a fresher) allocated a halls flat with only 3rd year students. Trust me, you don't want to be in anything else other than a flat with freshers. 2) The uni has decided to make significant cuts to my department, barely a year into my degree. As such I won't be receive the teaching conditions which I specifically came to Surrey for. (small dept, high ratio of staff to students) etc. 3)Massive focus on investment on research projects, which is of course a good thing and will push Surrey up in the rankings, however there is an obvious lack of investment in the Student Union, and general campus facilities. Ugly 1960s buildings are everywhere. 4) Perhaps the best thing about Surrey is the sports park. If you love sports, come here. You'd be hard pressed to find somewhere with better facilities.

I love studying at University of Surrey! There is so much to do in this wonderful Guildford town. So many benefits about the location e.g. London only being 20 minutes away on the train! The facilities, societies, events, environment, people are all so amazing! It's a very multi cultural university so no matter from what country you come from you know that you'll fit right in! So many great opportunity on and off campus to develop many skills and as a person. I couldn't recommend it more. The structure of courses are excellent and the university really does try help you with any problems, from Student Finance support, finical help to personal issues such as mental disorders and counselling.
