Location and transport
You can walk to the Stag Hill campus via the designated pedestrian path, which takes about 15-20 minutes. You will want to leave longer if you are going to a building on the opposite side of campus though.
Take a look at the walk between our campuses in this StagTV video.
You can also ride the designated University bus routes (1 and 2) from Stag Hill to both Tesco and Manor Park.
The journey takes about seven minutes and buses run up to every 10 minutes through the University campuses on weekdays and every 15-20 minutes on Saturdays and Sundays. The night bus operates six nights per week, Monday to Saturday.
You can either walk about 45 minutes into town, or take any of the University bus routes which stop at the Friary Bus Station in town.
Bellerby Court is located opposite the Royal Surrey County Hospital and Tesco. Surrey Sports Park is less than five minutes away too. Manor Park is located next to Bellerby Court so you will be part of the huge Manor Park campus community, with your own bar/restaurant called Heart + Soul at the Manor Park reception.
The Manor Park campus also has our Vet and Health Sciences schools, so if you are studying courses in these areas you will be very close to most of your learning spaces.
