Student Accommodation Options

You can live in allocated student accommodation, or you can arrange your own accommodation. Whichever option you choose, you will find that living with others is the best way to experience student life.

Why Should I Live in University-managed Accommodation?

Staying in University-managed accommodation, you will find it easy to settle in and feel at home when you move to Surrey. Share with students studying different courses, from all over the world. University-managed accommodation is the ideal place to make great new friends.

Options to Suit You

Choose from our range of self-catered student housing to suit all budgets. Arranged in Courts of Residence, they give you a living space to make your own. You will find them within easy reach of the International Study Centre, whether you get here on foot or by bus.

Great Locations

Manor Park is a car-free student village in an area of wonderful natural beauty. Here you will find over 1,800 en suite rooms 20 minutes’ walk from Stag Hill campus. Manor Park has a cafe and it is easy to get to the Olympic-standard facilities at Surrey Sports Park from here.

Stag Hill campus is the main site, close to all the main campus amenities. Guildford town centre is a ten-minute walk away.

Hazel Farm is only two miles from Stag Hill campus, and a little over three miles away from the International Study Centre. It is an ideal choice if you are looking for a more affordable option. A regular, free bus service takes you to and from campus.
