Our campuses

The campus is situated within sight of the idyllic Surrey Hills, named as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and filled with endless opportunities to relax and unwind – from pretty country pubs and National Trust sites such as Box Hill and Polesden Lacey, to local breweries and vineyards, and acres of rolling countryside for walking and cycling.

Just ten minutes’ walk from campus, Guildford is an exciting mixture of historical, cultural and modern delights. Whilst it offers all the convenience of a modern town, you’ll also feel as safe and included as in any village. See below for a list of amenities near our campus.
