Guide for New Surrey Students
On behalf of Registrar and Information Services, we’d like to welcome you to the new and vibrant SFU Surrey campus. We have highlighted some very important items for you below that will help you orient yourself to the campus. A Welcome Information Desk will be set up on the Mezzanine Level during the first week of classes in the Fall (September) and Spring (January) terms, to help those of you that are new to the campus get oriented. In the Summer (May) term, please stop by our front counter and someone will be able to assist you.
Thank you and we hope your term is successful!
