Surrey Research Park About Us

A major centre of excellence

Established in 1985 and owned and operated by the University of Surrey, our Park is a major centre of excellence in technology, science, health, space and engineering.

Based in Guildford, Surrey Research Park is nestled within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in South East England. We are ideally located with just a 30 minute train journey into London, as well as quick and easy access to international airports; Gatwick and Heathrow.

We pride ourselves on our flexible letting arrangements designed to facilitate company growth with accommodation for shared workspaces, University spin-outs, start-ups, SMEs and multinationals.

But we offer so much more than managed office spaces. As a University of Surrey Enterprise, we provide an outstanding enterprise ecosystem which includes our internationally acclaimed start-up support with incubation hub SETsquared, collaborative R&D funding initiatives and access to leading advisors and academics at the University.

We are also committed to helping our businesses tap into the highly skilled workforce at the University of Surrey. Businesses located on our Park have a distinct advantage of direct access to the University’s talent pool from professional training placements, Master and PhD level projects to our temping agency. We will also help advertise our tenants’ job vacancies.

All of this within a vibrant community of cluster sectors where businesses collaborate and inspire to make a difference.
