This paper outlines a method for constructing self-orthogonal codes from orbit matrices of strongly regular graphs admitting an automorphism group $G$ which acts with orbits of length $w$, where $w$ divides $|G|$. We apply this method to construct self-orthogonal codes from orbit matrices of the strongly regular graphs with at most 40 vertices. In particular, we construct codes from adjacency or orbit matrices of graphs with parameters $(36, 15, 6, 6)$, $(36, 14, 4, 6)$, $(35, 16, 6, 8)$ and their complements, and from the graphs with parameters $(40, 12, 2, 4)$ and their complements. That completes the classification of self-orthogonal codes spanned by the adjacency matrices or orbit matrices of the strongly regular graphs with at most 40 vertices. Furthermore, we construct ternary codes of $2$-$(27,9,4)$ designs obtained as residual designs of the symmetric $(40, 13, 4)$ designs (complementary designs of the symmetric $(40, 27, 18)$ designs), and their ternary hulls. Some of the obtained codes are optimal, and some are best known for the given length and dimension.
