Waverley Abbey House, Waverley Lane, Farnham, Surrey GU9 8EP

The Waverley Abbey College main campus is a beautiful place to study, set near Farnham, in the heart of the Surrey countryside. Set in a Grade II* listed building, we have multiple classrooms, offering a great space to study.

Our main classrooms benefit from great natural light, high ceilings and space.

The dining room, lounge, coffee bar and 135 acres of land allow plenty of comfortable social spaces away from lectures. With a library housing over 4,000 books, on-site parking and accommodation with 17 bedrooms, Waverley Abbey College’s main campus provides the ability to study and stay on-site whilst staying as safe as possible during this time.

We are excited to welcome new and continuing students to Waverley Abbey House and to share the space and beauty of our surroundings, alongside the dedicated teaching and support from our lecturers and staff.


We prepare fresh, nutritious food served in our dining room, and on-site café, with  a range of dining options to choose from.

From full catering, which includes lunch and evening meals, lunch only, or just an evening meal – there’s a range of options to meet students’ needs.  The dining room option is pre-booked for the term and is a great place for students to gather and eat together.  A sample monthly menu, with listed ingredients, can be viewed here

Our onsite café serving sandwiches, snacks, homemade cakes, hot drinks and cold beverages is available to purchase without pre-booking.

Students also have the option of bringing their own cold food to enjoy, which may be consumed either in their lecture room or in the grounds of Waverley Abbey.  Please note that there is no facility to store food brought onto the premises.

For those with a diagnosed medical dietary condition, where they are unable to eat the food prepared at Waverley Abbey, we have a dedicated meal room with a small kitchenette for students to store, prepare and heat via a microwave, their own food.  This facility is available through application with Student Services.

We strive for excellence in simplicity in all that we prepare, and would love to share our food with you.  We hope to serve you soon at Waverley Abbey.
