Safety and Security



Guildford is one of the safest places in the UK. But this doesn't mean we can be complacent. Crime can still happen in Surrey and it's important to make sure you're always keeping yourself (and your stuff) safe.

Just because we have our own campus doesn't mean that it's only Surrey students making use of it, so propping open your front door could let in more than just the fresh air, and leaving your stuff unattended in the library isn't always the best idea either. Keeping safe at Surrey is always important, and it's when we all work together that we can keep Surrey one of the safest places to study.


​​​​Teenagers and young adults spend a lot of time online – it can be a great way for them to socialise, explore and have fun. But users do also face risks like cyberbullying or seeing content that is inappropriate.​​​​

Dating is also fun, exciting and can be a good way to get to know more people. But, with more students turning to dating apps and sites to find potential dates, we want to ensure you are staying safe online. The leading dating site Match ​have put together some golden rules to help you get the most out of your online dating journey.
