The university is where you will get the cheapest drinks and guildford itself is expensive outside of Lloyds, but if you say I will spend x amount on a night out then you can stay within it and have a good time. that is probably the easiest way and when going shopping for groceries get what you need first then plan around it. Part-time work is available within guildford due to a large selection of shops and the university itself offers a good number of part time flexible roles. Additional course costs are purely down to the course you are on and how much you feel you required the additional materials. Guildford itself can be got around on foot, but only if you are willing. The bus service is relatively frequent, but unsure on cost×

The Sports scene at Surrey is massive. We have reduced membership at the surrey sports park which is a short walk from the campus. It is one of europes leading sports venues with world class facilities. There are 44 student sport clubs to join including football, dance, hockey etc. You name it, we do it. Even if you don't want to join a club at competitive level there are always social/open sessions. For example, there is a football teeam but you can also come along to a social five a side football league on sundays.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
