A strategic partner for NC State, the University of Surrey is one of the top universities in the United Kingdom. NC State recently renewed its student exchange agreement with the university, a partnership which officially began in 2006.

The University of Surrey is a public research university located on Stag Hill, close to the center of Guildford with around 12,300 undergraduate students. Guildford is a large town in the county of Surrey located about 30 miles southwest of London. The university specializes in science, engineering, medicine, and business.

The university has a worldwide reputation for excellence in teaching and research and is consistently voted by students as the most welcoming place to study.

The UGPN also includes NC State, the University of Sao Paulo, and the University of Wollongong. A delegation from Surrey will be joining the conference at NC State on April 1-3, where all network universities will share past accomplishments in research collaborations as well as formulate strategic direction and programmatic initiatives for the UGPN.
