Local Community

Banner Community page.jpg


Welcome to Guildford. As a new 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!

Community 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.​
