Concerning the organization of this university, it is divided into three main faculties.

     All first-year students living on campus are allocated a Student Life Mentor who is on hand to provide support, help and advice. At Surrey, they offer a variety of good-quality accommodation, with a choice of several price brands, from Band A (most affordable) to Band E. Arranged in Courts of Residence (groups of self-catered housing), the campus accommodation has been carefully designed to meet the students’ needs and provide them with comfortable living space to make their own. What is also worth mentioning is the University of Surrey’s Students’ Union (USSU), which is an independent charity, led by officers who represent Surrey students. It gives students the opportunity to be active members in different activities, like events, sports clubs, and other areas. This is an easy way to find friends with similar interests.
