About The University of Surrey

Address and Location

The University of Surrey's main campus is situated on Guildford's Stag Hill, near the city cathedral. A second is located a mile south-west, at Manor Park. Both sites are surrounded by Guildford town, just south of London.
 
 

Background and History

The university's modern campus at Stag Hill was built in the 1960s, but the roots of the institution go back further to the founding of Battersea Polytechnic Institute in South London in 1891. Focused on science and technical subjects, the college gradually outgrow its buildings in London and relocated to a greenfield site in nearby Guildford. A second campus has been added since the institute gained university status in 1992.

Location and Accessibility

By Rail: Both campuses are a short walk from Guildford Railway Station, which has connections across the South-East and a fast service to London.

By Road: Manor Park is proudly car-free; driving in the area is discouraged and parking spaces non-existent. The main Guildford campus has parking facilities, however, and is easily accessed from the A3.

Accessibility: Most university facilities are wheelchair-accessible and accommodation is provided for students with disabilities.
