Royal Holloway, University of London

Student life

Royal Holloway campus is one of the most beautiful in the world with everything you need right on your doorstep. Explore our teaching and study spaces, bars and cafés, high-quality accommodation, the sports centre or our illustrious Picture Gallery. All this is set in 135 acres of stunning parkland that you can discover at your own leisure.

Our campus is also home to a vibrant yet friendly community displayed by our proud tradition of music and performance as well as sporting excellence.

An active social life is an important part of university and you can enjoy a thriving scene on and off campus. The wide variety of sports, clubs and societies means there really is something for everyone - and you don't have to venture off campus to find it. The local area provides opportunities for shopping, eating out, history and culture, and exploring the countryside. Because of our proximity to London, you can also benefit from all the capital has to offer.

When it comes to entertainment, Royal Holloway has a reputation for having one of the best Students’ Unions in the London area. The function hall, with a capacity of more than 1,200, hosts an impressive array of themed club nights, bands and DJs.


You can choose from a wide variety of on-campus Halls accommodation, within a few minutes walk of all the teaching and social facilities, as well as an off-campus Halls option only one mile away. Halls vary greatly in size, appearance, age and atmosphere, from the unique character of the Victorian Founder's Building, which has just undergone refurbishment, to more modern residences such as Williamson, Tuke & Butler.

No matter which residence you live in, all halls provide comfortable accommodation, good value for money and a friendly community.  

A dedicated team of residential, operational and maintenance support staff will look after you, ensuring you are provided with a safe and comfortable home throughout your stay.
