A message from Royal Holloway, University of London, in relation to coronavirus

At Royal Holloway, University of London, we continue to closely monitor the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak and we are following advice from the government in order to ensure we are playing our part in helping to manage the impact of coronavirus on our whole community.

For the academic year 2020/2021, in response to the on-going impact of the pandemic, we have adapted our courses to combine face-to-face and online teaching and learning support. This blended approach builds in flexibility to both accommodate social distancing and ensure that if further restrictions or lockdowns are imposed, our students won’t have interrupted study.

The health, safety and well-being of students, staff and our wider community is a priority at Royal Holloway. Our staff have worked hard to prepare a Covid-secure campus that reflects government guidance and restrictions. You can read more about these measures here.

Alongside the adaptations we have made to our academic delivery and the practical changes on our campus, we have launched a campaign called Playing your part to communicate to our students the importance of adhering to social distancing and hygiene guidelines and reinforcing the important role everyone plays in protecting themselves, others and the whole community. This campaign aligns with the public health campaign of Surrey County Council.

We have also made changes to our events programme. During the autumn term events or exhibitions available for the general public will be hosted online. For further details, please visit our events webpage.
