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!
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:

Events in the Local Community
Each year Guildford hosts many community events that are free to attend and a great opportunity to get involved with while you spend time as a resident here.
Christmas Lights Switch On
Christmas Lights Switch On happens each November. It usually involves a candle lit procession, Steve the Stag meeting and greeting Guildfordians and of course thousands of people, music and fun.
