Hey. This happens with clearing. Almost everyone who joined Surrey via clearing got their accommodation sorted before term stared but it took time. Contact accommodation services and they can advise you in more details in this regard.

Hi riaxxx,

Congrats at getting a place at Surrey

Don't panic about accommodation. Although Clearing students are welcome to apply for halls, firm and insurance offer holders are given priority, so it's not likely that there will be places left for Clearing students. Therefore, the best option is to secure accommodation in the private sector. We have a dedicated Lettings team who are here to help advise you on how to go about getting off-campus accommodation. Have a read of the information on the website I've linked you, and if you still find yourself needing some extra advice then feel free to give the team a call on 01483681111


Many students also get rooms through spareroom.co.uk - you can set the filters there to only show rooms available to students. Anything within the GU1 and GU2 postcodes should be within walking distance of the uni. GU3 and GU4 postcodes would be good if you wanted to cycle or didn't mind getting a bus into town and then walking 10 minutes to the uni. The surrounding towns of Woking, Godalming, Farnham and Aldershot are also viable options if you don't mind a short train journey to the uni. The train station is only a 10 minute walk from our main Stag Hill campus.

Hope this helps! Image

All the best,
Ashley

Hi zippyRN,

While some students who apply through Clearing may be lucky enough to get accommodation due to others dropping out, this is by no means guaranteed. Therefore, we strongly recommend that students who do not hold an offer for a room in halls find private accommodation to ensure they actually have somewhere to live at the beginning of term.

All the best,
Ashley

Hi Tanzil.i, StudyQueen, MuntahaAhmed25, bcxn and abibundy

Check out my comment at the top of the thread for advice on how to go about finding accommodation. There are also Facebook groups such as this one https://www.facebook.com/groups/Stud...odationSurrey/ and this one https://www.facebook.com/groups/571082443030715/ (which is an official University of Surrey Lettings group) where students and landlords advertise rooms available in their houses Don't panic - there are lots of ways to find accommodation off campus!

Hope this helps!

All the best,
Ashley

I've got a single room available immediately in a 4 bed student house. Rent including bills is £525 per month. The house is situated in Franklin Court and is just 10 minutes walk from Manor park campus/ sports park and 15 minutes from stag hill campus.

The room is fully furnished with a single bed, wardrobe, desk and shelving unit. The room also comes with a large upstairs walk in cupboard.

The Communal areas consist of: a kitchen with plenty of storage, 2 fridges, a freezer and washing machine; a Living room / dining space; an upstairs and downstairs bathroom; Garden which traps the sun for the majority of the day and a shed which can be used for bike storage.

We are an easy going student household. Reply if interested.
