Location and transport

You can walk to Tesco in 20 minutes via a shared pedestrian and cycle pathway. Surrey Sports Park is located on our Manor Park campus, which is about a 25-minute walk from the Stag Hill campus. 

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 take the short 10-minute walk or take any of the University bus routes which stop at the Friary Bus Station in town.

University Court is on the eastern edge of the Stag Hill campus, so you are very close to town and the train station.

You will be living directly next to the GP surgery and Centre for Wellbeing, as well as being just a couple of minutes from our beautiful lake and the Students’ Union.

You can also find services and facilities such as ATMs, a laundrette, cafes and restaurants within a few minutes’ walk.
