Our 135-acre campus is one of the most beautiful in the world with everything you need right on your doorstep whether it's teaching spaces, bars and cafés, high-quality accommodation, a sports centre, book shop or our illustrious Picture Gallery. All this is surrounded by stunning parkland that you can explore at your own leisure. 

Our campus is also home to a vibrant yet friendly community displayed by our proud tradition of music and performance as well as sporting excellence.

Situated just 40 minutes by train from London and seven miles from Heathrow, with a number of attractions, sporting and entertainment venues within easy reach, you'll love our brilliant location.

 Discover our community|

Royal Holloway is known for its 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 cannot move far without seeing a familiar face creating a safe and relaxed environment.

Our students are spoilt for choice when it comes to our campus and local area. There's a wide range of things to do on campus as well as off campus, such as enjoying a night out or watching international rugby matches.

Picture gallery our campus

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.  Explore the Picture Gallery on one of our tours or via our online gallery.
