Our campus is the focal point of student life where most teaching and social activities take place. Most of our accommodation is located here too.

We’re known for our close-knit vibrant community, which is really brought to life by our people and cultural activities, such as music recitals and quad productions. This community means you can’t move far without seeing a familiar face and will quickly feel at home here.

Estate plan 


We are developing our historic estate to provide a 21st century campus that meets the needs of people studying and working in our university today.

Discover our plans for new buildings, including a Library and Student Services Centre, a Science Building and a Music and Media Building, and how we're planning to refurbish existing areas.

Explore the Picture Gallery


Between 1881 and 1883, our founder Thomas Holloway spent £80,000 (almost £6 million in today's money) on 77 paintings that now make up the Royal Holloway Picture Collection.

The Picture Gallery, which is home to most of these paintings, was the final touch to Holloway's College for Women, and is still a key part of our campus today.
