About The University of Surrey
Giving students a competitive edge for their future.
That’s what we do, and it’s what we have been doing since our very first students passed through our doors in 1894. The University was established with an aim to educate men and women who had a thirst for knowledge and a hunger to succeed. Whilst times have changed, our belief in the power of education and innovation remains the same.
The beautiful, landscaped grounds of the University campus are an ideal place to study, relax and socialise in. Safe and secure, the campus is home to 12,000 students and around 3000 staff, who all play a role in creating a friendly, close-knit and cosmopolitan community. Surrounded by carefully designed gardens, vibrant green playing fields and a picturesque lake, the campus grounds provide a truly dynamic and enriched experience for all our students, staff and visitors. It really is an ideal space to work, live and play.
Over the last few years the University has dramatically strengthened its league table position consistently across all the main university league tables, including the Guardian, The Times, and the Sunday Times.
