Location and transport

You can walk to the Stag Hill campus via the designated pedestrian path, which takes about 25 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.

Manor Park is located opposite the Royal Surrey County Hospital, and it just a few minutes away from Tesco and Surrey Sports Park

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. 

You also have your own social space to enjoy, called Manor Park Social.
