Explore the campus

The Royal Holloway campus is the best of both worlds

Steeped in history and surrounded by beauty, but with advanced facilities, all in a leafy and friendly 135-acre estate.

We live, study and socialise in a high-tech, vibrant place, with the Founder’s Building, an impressive Victorian masterpiece based on a French chateau, as its heart.

Likened to Harry’s Potter’s Hogwarts and “living in a castle” by some of the 500 students who live here, Founder’s is also home to the Chapel and the Picture Gallery

So why not explore our campus facilities, find great places to eat and drink, and discover the historic buildings at Royal Holloway?
