UK arrival checklist
Find out what to expect during your first few weeks when you arrive at the University of Surrey. These page will be regularly updated to reflect any changes to the guidance issued by the UK Government in relation to your studies.
Contact friends and family
Call or email home to let your family and friends know you have arrived safely.
Collect your keys
Locate your accommodation and collect the key as directed in your accommodation confirmation email. This section of the checklist will be updated to incorporate any quarantine measures. If you are required to quarantine on arrival, we will ensure that you have the necessary information to do so comfortably and safely.
Collect your BRP
Collect your biometric residence permit, using your UKVI decision letter and passport from the Guildford Post Office (if the BRP collection point changes, you will receive an email from us, confirming the new location.)
Get your National Insurance number
If you want to work part-time and your biometric residence permit (BRP) doesn't have a National Insurance number printed on it, you will need to apply for one.
