University of Surrey review

Surreys best feature is that fact that its a campus university this means everything is on the one site from first year accommodation to a post office!
Its features include a large student union, 3 bars excluding the ones in the union, a huge 5 storey library, 24 hour computer rooms, bookshop, One-stop convenience shop, post office, 2hr security, a health centre and sports centre including a fully equipped gym.
the accommodation provided to students in their first year is varied in price and in quality, obviously the en-suite newer rooms are expensive whereas the older style rooms, with 2 showers per floor are cheaper! All accommodation is liveable in and cleaners are in most days cleaning communal areas.
Guildford is quite an expensive place and some private houses to rent in the 2nd year can be quite expensive. If money does become a problem there are plenty of services available to students. Including the Student Advice and information Service who can provide grants etc. There are lots of job opportunities in town with 2 major supermarket chains employing students as well as pubs and shops. there are a limited of jobs available to students on campus
Guildford town is a ten minute walk and there are regular bus services to the town as the bus routes run right through campus. the town has a multi screen cinema as well as an ice rink, numerous pubs and clubs, and bowling etc.
the union has a huge amount of societies and sports clubs the best way to discover what the union offers is to go to www.ussu.co.uk
As far as my course goes i am based in the school of biological sciences this department is currently undergoing refurbishment and the labs are going to be state of the arc. The staff in the school are pretty down to earth and all the ones i have come into contact with are very approachable and always willing to help. There are many placements available to students who wish to do a sandwich course including placements in the USA and New Zealand. I have really enjoyed my studies so far and would recommend this school to anyone considering a bioscience degree (www.surrey.ac.uk/sbs)
