Guildford is a relatively large cobbled city in the heart of Surrey. It offers an array of cafes, restaurants, clubs and shops alongside beautiful cathedrals and medieval architecture.
The university operates on two campuses: The first is located on Stag Hill which is close to the city centre and the second is just a short distance outside Guildford. The former is the university's main campus with the latter being a recent development that consists of student accommodation, academic buildings and the Surrey Sports Park. Surrey University specialises in medicine, engineering and science and has recently expanded into China by opening the Surrey International Institute.
Park barn and Stoughton are two popular student areas for accommodation.
