Applying to live in halls

Applying online is quick and easy, whichever stage of study you’re at. Here are some hints and tips to read before you apply.

When to apply

If Royal Holloway is your first choice for a full-time course and you have accepted your place, you can apply online from 12noon on Wednesday 18 March, 2020.

Please see our allocation policy for full details on applying for accommodation. 

New undergraduate students 

We will guarantee you an offer of accommodation if you hold a conditional firm (CF) or unconditional firm (UF) offer and you submit an application for accommodation by midnight on Tuesday 23 June, 2020.

If we’re your insurance choice and you do not meet the requirements for your firm choice, we will review your application to study at Royal Holloway and decide if we can accept you. If so, we will automatically become your firm choice and then you can apply for accommodation online.

Applying through clearing?

If you apply to Royal Holloway through Clearing, you will be invited to apply for accommodation once you have accepted an offer of study. Applicants who have made Royal Holloway their insurance choice, or who gain a place with us through Clearing may receive a guarantee of accommodation. Details of the available options will be provided when you are invited to apply for accommodation.

Postgraduate students

We will guarantee accommodation for international postgraduate taught students (from outside the EU) who apply for halls by midnight on Wednesday 12 August 2020. (This guarantee does not apply for international postgraduate students who are applying for couples or family accommodation).

While we cannot guarantee accommodation, we expect to have availability for all postgraduate students who apply by the deadline. 

Postgraduate accommodation in London

We have a limited number of rooms in central London (intercollegiate accommodation), reserved for our postgraduate students. Find out more.
