YMCA has been delivering services in Guildford for more than 25 years. Out of our Centre in Bridge Street we provide:


Accommodation for over 100 young people and students.  Our Bridge Street hostel is home for those in housing crisis but please note we cannot take direct referrals.  Anyone in need of housing contact should be made with Guildford Borough Council.  Student accommodation enquiries should be directed to the neighbouring Academy of Contemporary Music.

Our smaller hostel, Midwey House is currently being redeveloped to create more housing for young people.  It will re-open in 2017.
