Volunteering at Royal Holloway

Royal Holloway Volunteering is an award-winning department within Royal Holloway, University of London that develops amazing community opportunities for students to take part in.

Whether you want to gain valuable skills for future employment, learn a bit more about your interests or make a genuine difference in your community, we are here to help. Volunteering is also a fantastic way to meet new people and make friends!

How does it work?

First you can register on our online volunteering system. Using this system you can create a profile and search a range of different volunteering opportunities and community partners. If you find an opportunity that you are interested in, you can use the system to sign up or contact the relevant community partner!

Once you have volunteered, you can even record your volunteering hours using the system. Recording hours means that you will be helping us to measure our impact in the local community and will make you eligible for our bespoke Royal Holloway Inspired Awards.  

Each week we send out an update featuring a selection of great opportunities. Have a look at our most recent updates.
