REsidents NEws Letter.png 

​​As a Guildford resident there are many reasons you might want to keep up to date with what students are up to in the community! We send a news letter at the start of each term (three times a year) so you can be aware of all our upcoming activities and events including busy periods. We love Guildford and want to engage with every one as much as possible, this news letter is a great way for you to get invovled with us on and off campus

200 width bar.pngCommunity Reps

Guildford, like most places in the UK, is made up of 'Wards'. A Community rep is a student representative for a designated ward in Guildford. The role of a Community Rep is to be a student representative that can listen to residents (students and/or non-students), and help raise any local issues that they may come across, providing a vital link to create a community between all those who live in and around Guildford.​
