Celebrate Surrey

Celebrate Surrey is a programme of public events which recognises the contribution that both the University of Surrey and Surrey Sports Park make to the intellectual, economic and cultural life of the local, national and global community.

Taking place during the year when the UK hosts the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Celebrate Surrey also provides the opportunity to mark and participate in these wider national celebrations.

And, it supports our wider strategy to engage more with people outside the University, to inspire them with opportunities for new learning and entertainment, to demonstrate how the work we do can be a catalyst for positive change and to encourage them to join our staff and students to discover more and to help shape what we do.


Celebrate Surrey – Inspire, Change, Discover, Engage, aims to encourage a culture of two-way conversations between university staff and students, and people outside the university. The University of Surrey makes a significant contribution to intellectual life, the arts, sports and well-being. Our ambition is to raise awareness of the many opportunities that already exist and to encourage a greater understanding among the local community of the ways in which the University of Surrey benefits the area and the region.


The programme of events, many of them free, offers exciting opportunities for staff, students and members of the wider community to experience and learn more about what we do best.
