British Degree, Global Influence

International students on campus

Top ten for international outlook

Royal Holloway was ranked number 10 in the UK and number 31 in the world for international outlook (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2016/17). That is testimony to the global impact of our research, as well as the diversity of our staff and students on campus. 

A pioneering spirit

Royal Holloway was one of the first women’s colleges in the UK. Now co-educational, this pioneering spirit lives on in our values and culture to challenge convention, break new ground and make learning an adventure.


Where students thrive

Our friendly and safe community provides the perfect environment for students to immerse themselves in their studies and find something new from the 90+ extra-curricular options. Students are encouraged to flourish in all aspects of their education, whether that is in the lecture theatre, on the extensive playing fields or among the array of performance spaces.



Royal Holloway is located in Egham, Surrey, a quiet, student-friendly town. Although the campus is only 40 minutes from central London by train, the surroundings are a world away from the busy capital. Situated in 135 acres, and close to Runnymede National Trust park, the College provides everything students require from a weekly international food market to laundry facilities, social venues and a variety of restaurants. We ensure our students have everything they need within easy reach, and the staff at the ISC are on hand to offer assistance with anything else our students need.



When you’re a student at Royal Holloway, you’ll find all the facilities you need on campus. We continually work to develop and invest in our campus. The award-winning Windsor Building holds our new, spacious lecture theatres and a variety of seminar rooms for teaching. We provide a host of additional facilities on campus to ensure our students have all they need; this includes: multi-faith worship facilities, college shop, library, places to eat and drink and excellent sporting facilities.

The Students' Union actively represents the students of Royal Holloway and promotes your needs and interests by offering participation, bars and entertainment, support and advice, clubs and societies, catering, transport, volunteering, campaigning and advocacy. The clubs and societies available include sports clubs and societies dedicated to cultural groups, arts, politics and academic societies.
