Autumn Visit Experiences

Due to the measures needed to keep everyone safe in light of Covid-19, it is not possible to run a full Open Day on campus this year.  However, in order to provide an opportunity to visit campus in person, we are offering a number of Covid-secure Autumn Visit Experiences.  

Following the Government’s updated guidance (Covid-19), the university is following the advice carefully. We currently expect these events to go ahead as planned, and are taking bookings as normal. If the situation changes we will contact those who have already booked directly, and also update the information on this page.

These events will give you an informative and personalised experience of what Royal Holloway is really like. During your visit you will have the opportunity to:

  • Speak with staff from departments and key services
  • Explore our beautiful campus
  • Speak with current students

Due to the need to ensure the safety of our current students, unfortunately we will not be able show any accommodation at these events.  However, there will be information on accommodation available, as well as staff available to talk to about what we have to offer.

In order to limit the number of people on campus, there will only be selected subjects available on each day:

Saturday 26 September & Sunday 18 October 2020

Arts, Humanities and Social Science

Sunday 27 September & Saturday 17 October 2020

Booking is compulsory and we will not be able to accommodate anyone who has not registered in advance. We’ve been working hard to make sure our campus is safe following the current rules and guidance on social distancing. Please read the Eventbrite page fully when making your booking to understand how the visit will be organised.
