Royal Holloway Archives and Special Collections

The Royal Holloway Archives and Special Collections are part of Library Services and located in Founder’s Library. We hold records relating to Royal Holloway College, Bedford College, Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, as well as personal papers of former staff and students. Using the collections, you can find out about people who have lived, worked and studied in Egham and Bedford Square, York Place and Regent's Park, the former locations of Bedford College.

We also hold Special Collections donated to the College, including the Gay Sweatshop, Half Moon and Red Shift Theatre Collections, the Alfred Sherman papers, Dom Anselm Hughes collection and Roy Waters theatrical ephemera.

We hope you will enjoy using these pages to discover more about our collections and services, search our catalogues and find out how to arrange a reading room appointment. Please contact us if you have any comments or queries, and in advance of any visit, so we can arrange a suitable time.
