University of Surrey
Clubs and social environment
Please tell us more about the social environment, sports clubs and societies and anything else you think candidates need to know about life at your university.
"There are many sports clubs available. The Surrey Sports Park is also a good location and equipped with all the necessary facilities."
"There's a huge number of societies that are well run and organised with many opportunities to meet people and make connections."
"When it comes to sports clubs and societies, this uni has nearly everything you could imagine. Sports teams meet either on campus or at the sports park to train and we have other clubs ranging from a baking society to a Harry Potter society. They offer a great community feel and membership costs are (mostly) fairly low. All information on these will be offered at the freshers' fair or online at ussu.Co.Uk."
"There are many available societies that are cultural, activity and sports related."
"There are so many sports clubs and societies. Anything from pole dancing to a model United Nations society. If there isn't a club you like, it is very easy to set one up. We even have Russian, Greek and Nepalese societies that always hold events to share their culture."
"People are really friendly. There is a sports park about 20 minutes away from the university campus that provides a lot of services for a yearly or monthly subscription. There are loads of diverse societies dedicated to different backgrounds and ethnicities. Also, the university's Global Graduate Award programme allows you to learn a language for free."
"There are a lot of sports clubs that people can get involved in as there are multiple teams for each sport. In addition, there are many societies so everyone can find something that suits them."
"Surrey is home to the Surrey Sports Park, which is notably one of the best sports facilities in the country and was used during the 2012 Olympics, as well as being where #TeamSurrey trains (the university's sports clubs). There is a diverse community of societies."
"The social side is brilliant at the university in terms of clubs and societies. There's so much to do as everything is accessible and new ideas are easy to get going."
"Sports facilities are very good, with reasonable prices."
