Scape Guildford is located within 100 metres of the south gate to The University of Surrey, close proximity to the University of Law and the Academy of Contemporary Music and five minutes to Guildford train station and town centre. The building comprises 141 bedrooms (60 en-suite bedrooms and 81 studios) and c.2,000 square feet of communal space including games room, private study area and cinema room.
The University of Surrey is home to more than 15,000 students of which 34 per cent are international students and 23 per cent are postgraduates. The university only has enough beds for first year undergraduates and postgraduates, but insufficient supply for international students or second, third year undergraduate and postgraduate students. The University of Law has c.5,000 students in attendance and the Academy of Contemporary Music has c.1,200 students. Neither of these HEIs has any purpose built student accommodation and both are therefore currently reliant on the Guildford residential market.
