Intercollegiate accommodation

Intercollegiate accommodation

What is intercollegiate accommodation?

As part of the University of London, Royal Holloway has access to small number of rooms in intercollegiate halls of residence in central London that is available to postgraduate students. For the 2021/22 academic year, we will be able to offer townhouse accommodation in Garden Halls comprising single, self-catered rooms with shared facilities on 50-week contracts (12 September 2021 to 27 August 2022).

Due to the limited number of places available, these rooms are allocated on a first come first served basis to postgraduate students only.

When can I apply?

The application process for intercollegiate accommodation arranged through Royal Holloway for 2021/22 opened at midday (GMT) on 30 April 2021. As demand for rooms through the College has been high, we are now full. However, there is the option to apply for intercollegiate accommodation direct through the University of London.

Please visit their webpages for further details.

When will I hear on the outcome of my application?

Applications were processed on a first-come-first-served basis, with applications held on a waiting list if demand was high. 


For general information regarding intercollegiate accommodation, please visit the University of London accommodation webpages. If you are interested in finding private sector accommodation in London, the University of London Housing Services webpages provide more information.
