Universities Scheme

We are proud to participate in the United Grand Lodge of England Universities Scheme and are the designated Lodge for The University of Surrey undergraduate and postgraduate students, alumni and staff.

While the minimum age for joining Freemasonry is normally 21, in the case of students, this limit is reduced to 18. In addition, reduced fees are charged to those aged under 25.

The Universities Scheme was introduced in 2005 with the objective ‘To establish and/or enhance arrangements and opportunities for undergraduates and other university members to enjoy Freemasonry’ as Oxford and Cambridge have done for nearly 200 years.

University freemasonry for women

UGLE is co-operating with the Honorable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons and the Order of Women Freemasons in the Universities Scheme.

The designated women’s lodge for Surrey University is the HFAF Surrey Lodge no 45.
