What is the USSU?
The University of Surrey Students’ Union (USSU) is first and formost here to represent you as a student of the University of Surrey.
As a student here at Surrey you are automatically a member of the USSU so we encourage everyone to make the most of the Union from Day 1.
Meet The Sabbs
The Union is split into four zones; Voice, Activity, Support, and Community, and each zone is led by a full time officer that is a Vice-President and Trustee of the Union. The Sabbaticals, also called Sabbs, are made up of Gemma (President), Ajay, Lizzie, Sarah and Amina.
The Sabbs office is always open and is in the main Union building, so make sure to come and say hi.
Where are we?
We are situated in the heart of the University grounds, just past Starbucks!
When you first arrive at Surrey you will be welcomed by a whole team of Angels; be sure to look out for these guys! They will be around to help you with anything you may need such as helping you move in and getting settled into your room as well as answering any questions you may have. You'll know who they are because of their sunny yellow t-shirts!
Warning: They will often spontaneously start doing the Moving In Dance
Freshers' Fair is the highlight of Freshers' Week and is on the Friday in the huge marquee on PATS field.
This year the fair will be on Friday 4th October 12-4pm
All staff and students are welcome to attend. In attendance at the fair will be all Students' Union sports clubs and societies, University departments, commercial partners, local charities and a selection of food stalls.
Official Freshers' Wristband
Rubix, our 1,550 capacity nightclub hosts regular club nights during term time, complimented by The Basement providing a different offering downstairs. Students are also encouraged to utilise the spaces for their own nights too, giving you even greater variety.
Make sure that if you want the Official Surrey Union wristband it is purchased from Tixtu. This will include entry into Rubix over all eight nights.
