Your health

There is an NHS Medical Practice (Guildowns), located in the Health Centre, University Court. We recommend all students register with a GP here as soon as possible after starting University, so that they have easy access to all local NHS services. This is especially important if you are not a UK resident.

The Royal Surrey County Hospital is located very close to the university, and includes an Accident & Emergency department, which is open 24 hours a day for Medical Emergencies (including emergencies relating to Mental Health).

University of Surrey

The University of Surrey is a public research university located within the county town of Guildford, Surrey, in the South East of England, United Kingdom. The university specialises in science, engineering, medicine and business. It received its charter on 9 September 1966, and was previously situated near Battersea Park in south-west London. The institution was known as Battersea College of Technology before gaining university status. Its roots, however, go back to the Battersea Polytechnic Institute, founded in 1891 to provide further and higher education for London’s poorer inhabitants. More recently, the university launched the Surrey International Institute with Dongbei University of Finance and Economics.

The university’s main campus is located on Stag Hill close to the centre of Guildford and adjacent to Guildford Cathedral. A second campus, at Manor Park, is located a short distance away and has been developed to expand upon existing accommodation, academic buildings and sporting facilities.
