Should you need it, the University offers assistance with any academic or personal problems you may face. Reviewers say positive things about student support, from their friendly attitude to the excellent advice they provide. Surrey's Centre for Wellbeing has an on-campus team of nurses and advisors to offer support and advice on issues ranging from mental health to living a healthy lifestyle. An on-site GP surgery also makes it easy for students to go to the doctors.

In the heart of Stag Hill campus, MySurreyHive, a space designed specifically for students, acts as a lively interactive space for students to access immediate support and advice on student-related queries, meet friends for informal study and to socialise. A range of activities, workshops and special interest seminars are held here throughout the semester. Academic Hives in each faculty are also accessible to students who need academic-related support. Across from the Hive, the MySurrey Nest is a modern homely environment for students to rest and relax between lectures and study sessions.
