Open Days

Explore Royal Holloway

Find out about your course and student life at our top 25 UK university.*

Our spring Open Days and Online Applicant Events are primarily designed for students who have applied and already have an offer to join us in September 2022. The events are your chance to hear from some of our world-leading academics, staff from key services such as Careers and Wellbeing, and current students.

If you have not yet applied to study at Royal Holloway, you might prefer to take a look at our Campus Tours or sign up to be the first to hear about our summer Open Days. The campus tours are either guided by one of our friendly Student Ambassadors or self-led and must be booked in advance.

These events have been planned with the health and safety of students and guests as a priority, and so there will be some precautions in place. 

  • please bring no more than two guests in order to limit the number of people on campus.
  • our staff and students will be wearing face coverings whilst inside buildings and we require that all visitors do the same (unless medically exempt). 
  • we ask that all visitors please take a lateral flow test prior to travelling to campus. Please do not attend the event if the test result is positive.  

The event will also allow for social distancing as much as possible. This means that our lecture theatres for talks and presentations will have reduced capacity, and allow us to only accommodate one student and one guest. Your other guest can take advantage of the other activities happening on campus during this time.

If you have any questions, please contact us by emailing or call +44 (0)1784 414112.
