Local Community Information

Welcome to Guildford! As a resident you are more than just a student, you are part of a community. Whether on campus in your first year or out in the various wards of Guildford during your second and third year in a private rented house, this is your new home.

The union works very hard to help you make the most of your time here and provides information to help you become a good neighbour to your fellow Guildfordians!

Living Off-Campus?

If you’re living off-campus, check out our Living Off-Campus guide which is packed with helpful info about moving into the local area and making a new home in your new house. In there, we cover all this and more:

  • Council Tax
  • Registering to vote
  • Support available to you off-campus
  • Bin collections

Citizenship Award

We want to encourage our students to be great ambassadors for the Guildford community, and we run a Citizenship Award to recognise students who make a difference in our local town. To find out more, head over to the Citizenship Award page.
