About Royal Holloway, University of London
Royal Holloway, University of London is a campus-based university located in Surrey, on the outskirts of London. The university was founded by two social reformers who pioneered the ideal of education and knowledge for all who could benefit.
The centre of London is just 40 minutes away by train, whilst the nearby towns of Egham, Staines and Windsor offer all kinds of opportunities to shop, eat, relax or take in some culture and entertainment.
If travel is your thing, international transport hub, London Heathrow airport, is just seven miles away. To connect with nature and recharge, take a walk around Virginia Water lake or Windsor Great Park, both within walking distance of the 135 acre campus.
The university has a range of facilities to assist with your studies. The modern library in the Emily Wilding Davison Building has more than 600,000 volumes and subscribes to 40,000 print and online journals. It’s open 24/7 nearly all year round, with study spaces in different zones for silent or collaborative work. There are also several 24-hour PC labs dotted around campus. The Students’ Union stages several events and there are several places to eat and drink on campus.
