Guildford is a lovely town, great for shopping. However, in terms of night life it is quality versus quantity. we dont have a huge array of options. however what we do have is great. Rubix alone is a great student union club, we also have roots and chancellor which is our also student only bars/ pubs. But there are about 4 or so clubs in guildford, with casino being the most popular. You can always have a great student life but if your looking for a busy nightlife feel town then guildford isnt for you. But fun is there without much need to try.×

Renting off-campus in private accommodation is expensive compared to other universities in different parts of the country. Rent for a decent accommodation could cost you between 320 - 420 per month (excluding bills in many cases). Halls of residence are varied. Some older halls such as Stag Hill Court have an old layout which is not particularly sociable and do not feel very welcoming to new students. However, newer accommodation such as Manor Park, have en-suite bathrooms and have a more modern feel. As in general, be careful with private landlords as they tend to cut corners etc and I've never had a good experience with a landlord. Make sure you visit the accommodation office for a list of landlords which have been verified by the university×

The library, it's facilities and it's range of books is amazing. It has a great range of accommodation, and people working as Court Life Mentors to help you settle in and/or settle any differences you have with your housemates/flatmates. Its staff are extremely knowledgeable in their area and can generally help you in any way necessary, or will forward your request on to someone who can answer you if they can't answer it.×

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.
