The University of Surrey’s roots can be traced back to Battersea Polytechnic Institute in Battersea Park, London, which was established to extend the reach of higher education to the less fortunate. In 1956, the institute was granted the College of Advanced Technology designation. The following year, Battersea Polytechnic Institute was renamed Battersea College of Technology. Over the years, the college flourished and it was decided that the campus be moved to a larger area in order to accommodate its expansion. In 1970, the move to the new campus in Stag Hill in Guildford was finally completed. It was also the same year when the University of Surrey was finally established by Royal Charter.
