About this university
The University of Surrey is a public research university in the Surrey county town of Guildford in the southeast of England. The university was founded in 1966 and originally was located near Battersea Park in south-west London, being known as the Battersea College of Technology. This itself had roots in the Battersea Polytechnic Institute, founded in 1891 to educate the poorer inhabitants of the London area.
Students travel from 120 different countries to study at the University of Surrey, making it one of the most culturally diverse education facilities in the UK. For these international students, the International Office is the base of information and assistance for their time in the UK and can help with a number of subjects and problems. This involved practical information about immigration and visas as well as programs to help non-English speaking students master the language. They can also help students organise their courses and any foundation year qualifications needed. Student life is organised through the Studentsâ€™ Union that consists of departments representing students on academic and welfare issues as well as looking after sports clubs and societies. The union also organises a number of Balls during the year varying in formal dress and special occasions as well as special events during term time. There is even a Union nightclub called Rubix where up to 1600 students can meet up at one time and hosts a range of different guest acts and themed nights. There are over 100 clubs organised through the Studentsâ€™ Union with everything from sports to TV and radio as well as working with a charity or being a volunteer. They can also assist students looking for something new to broaden their horizons and develop new skills.

The campus is also home of the Multifaith Centre, the first in the UK to have a Synagogue, a Muslim prayer hall, Gurdwara and Chapel all under one roof. In 2010, a new sports centre was opened named Surrey Sport Park near the main campus with facilities including an Olympic sized swimming pool, multi sports halls, squash centre, fitness facilities and various other sports pitches. All first year students are guaranteed student accommodation at the university in a range of comfortable and secure settings offering a range of pricing options. The system is organised into groups of self-catering housing called Courts of Residence and are designed to allow students to get the most from their time at the university. As well as being on Stag Hill, there are also accommodation options at nearby Manor Park as well as Hazel Farm on the edge of Guildford, all of which can be reached using a free bus pass.
