Living in Guildford as a student
Guildford is a town in Surrey where the University of Surrey is based, which over 17,000 students attend. The town provides the perfect balance between rural and city life. It is within easy reach of the capital via great rail and road connections, whilst also being surrounded by the countryside.
With students quantifying a large percentage of the town’s population, Guildford does have a good supply of accommodation opportunities. There are 14 halls of residence in the town, these include both properties owned by the university and privately owned halls of residence. The university offers self-catered flats with shared kitchen, as well as studio flats. These halls of residence are campus based.
Private halls in Surrey are operated by the larger companies which successfully manage student accommodation across the country. These halls are in close proximity to the university and vary from a standard en-suite room to a private studio flat, with access to exclusive facilities. In addition to halls of residence there are various other accommodation options.
Shared houses are noteably popular amongst both returning students of the University of Surrey, as well as students who feel that they are not well-matched to halls. These houses are particularly suited to groups of 4 or more students. In addition, private or shared rental of flats and apartments are a popular choice and can often be found in central locations. This accommodation is usually administered through student letting agencies and by landlords who are specialists in student accommodation.
