About the University of Surrey
The University of Surrey is located in the picturesque town of Guildford, which is about 35 minutes by train from London. Guildford is set in the Surrey countryside, and is an ideal base for exploring the rest of the UK.
Guildford has all the amenities you will require, including a cinema, two theatres, a range of pubs and bars, several nightclubs, many restaurants and cafes, a distinctive shopping district, several supermarkets, and excellent sports and leisure facilities. The University's state of the art Surrey Sports Park opened in early 2010.
