International and EU Student Meet and Greet!

To ensure that new arriving International and EU students feel welcome and comfortable upon their arrival at the University of Surrey, the International Student Support Team has prepared a free of charge Meet and Greet pick up at Heathrow and Gatwick on the following dates:


Tuesday 20th September

Wednesday 21st September

Saturday 24th September


The team will greet the students at Heathrow and then transport them to the University campuses on specially arranged minibuses and coaches. At the University, the campus based team will hand out accommodation keys and take them to their rooms. Students arriving via Gatwick will receive a free of charge train ticket to Guildford. Upon their arrival at Guildford a minibus provided by Student Union will take them to their accommodation either on Stag Hill, Hazel Farm or Manor Park.


This year we are expecting over 500 students to be met and safely transported to the University.

To note: The Meet and Greet event takes place each year and would not be successful without help and involvement of over 40 trained student helpers as well as almost 20 members of staff from Student Money Team, International and Home Recruitment Teams and International Relations Office. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.
