On the edge of London, Guildford is a popular destination for those who love London, but also love the British countryside.

A historic and lively town in Surrey, Guildford is the door to some of the most incredible scenery in south east England.

Guildford has all the richness and features of a city, and yet remains small enough to explore and enjoy.

In the streets is so much history to discover, including the castle built by William the Conqueror, and the house of the author of Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll.

London Summer Schools – Campus

As you will see from our Location Gallery, the University of Surrey is located on a modern, green campus, offering students a pleasant place to study English and make friends.

The university has invested a lot of money in the development of new buildings, including a £35 million sports centre (built 2010).

More recently, the university completed the construction of new accommodation buildings, Manor Park.

Looking down upon these modern buildings is Guildford Cathedral. Additionally, the college is surrounded by landscaped grounds, trees, and a lake – home to many ducks and swans.

Other on-site facilities include a social room, bank, shop, bookshop, and laundry.

The classrooms are modern, spacious and bright, in keeping with the University’s desire to be a world class seat of learning.
