Open Events and Campus Tours


Royal Holloway, University of London is located on a 135 acre woodland campus in Surrey, just fifteen minutes from Heathrow Airport and 19 miles west of London. The best way to experience Royal Holloway is to visit us on one of the Open Day’s which are arranged throughout the year. Alternatively, you can take advantage of our virtual Open Days which is particularly useful if you are based internationally. This tour includes a multitude of media designed to give you a flavour of the Department and College. Click on the links below to find out more about visiting us.

If you are thinking about studying at Royal Holloway and are unable to attend one of our Open Days, you may like to visit us for a tour around our beautiful campus. 

We run both guided and self-led campus tours.

Guided tours are led by one of our current Student Ambassadors who will be happy to answer questions about the College and share their own personal experience of studying at Royal Holloway. Alternatively you can book a self-led tour, giving you the flexibility to explore our campus at a time that is convenient for you.

It should be noted that campus tours are not department or subject specific.
