Can the Zones help?

Don’t forget that you can also get in touch with the four Zones – these each have 6 Officers with a range of intests and skills that may be able to help you out! Here’s what they each do:

  • Voice – this is the Zone for students that have something to say. We lead on democracy, student opinion, and championing national issues. Email us at ussu.voicezone@surrey.ac.uk.
  • Community – this is the Zone for bringing people together. We lead on volunteering, fundraising, and issues on campus/Guildford. Email us at ussu.communityzone@surrey.ac.uk.
  • Support – this is the Zone for supporting students and supporting those who want to support others. We lead on wellbeing, diversity/inclusion, and student-led support like Nightline or Wellfare Watch. Email us at ussu.supportzone@surrey.ac.uk.
  • Activity – this is the Zone for students that want to get involved. We lead on sports, societies, and individual development.  Email us at ussu.activityzone@surrey.ac.uk.
