Our archives contain some of the earliest records relating to the history of higher education for women.

We hold institutional records of Bedford and Royal Holloway Colleges from the 19th century to the present day. We also have personal papers of prominent individuals with links to the Colleges as well as special collections, many of which relate to theatre history. A full list of our collections is available here or you can search the catalogue. Our rare book collections are searchable via the library catalogue.

The Archives at Royal Holloway, University of London, will be closed until further notice due to the Covid-19 situation.

You are welcome to search our collection using this link but we are currently unable to make appointments to view physical items.

Be sure to visit Royal Holloway's information page for continuing updates on the current situation.
