Through world-class research that expands minds and changes lives, the dedication of our teachers and the feel of the Royal Holloway experience, the university has built a community that inspires individuals to succeed academically, socially and personally.

Our campuses

Royal Holloway's beautiful 135-acre campus is a vibrant and friendly place to live, study and socialise. The spectacular Founder’s Building, at the heart of our campus, is home to the famous Picture Gallery containing Thomas Holloway's fine collection of Victorian paintings. You'll also find the Chapel and more than 500 students who call Founder's home, many of whom liken it to living in a castle or Hogwarts! Between 2002 and 2008, the college underwent a £100 million investment programme and a re-development of its campus that saw the modernisation of the business, life science and drama departments as well as the library, auditorium and other common facilities. Here are some amenities near our campus.
