Welcome to Mathematics

Congratulations on receiving an offer to study Mathematics (or a joint course with Mathematics) here at Royal Holloway. We are delighted to welcome you to the department and are committed to helping you develop your knowledge and skills during your degree programme.

Make the most of your time here - it goes quickly. I would encourage you to get involved where you can – we have a thriving Mathematics Society who are always keen to welcome new members – find out more about them and other Departmental activities on our Facebook page:

Welcome Week to-do list





  • Your first meeting with us is on Monday 18 September @ 10 am.
  • If you will be arriving late, please email maths@royalholloway.ac.uk to let us know. On arrival, go to the Mathematics Administration Office located in McCrea Building Room 247. Please do not worry, we have organised some catch up sessions on Wednesday 20 and Friday 22 September so that once you have arrived you don’t miss out on any important information to get you ready for starting term.
  • Note that you must arrive before the College deadline for enrolment on Friday 6 October; if you are going to be that late, always contact the department at once emailing maths@royalholloway.ac.uk. 
  • Teaching starts on Monday 25 September.  If you miss any teaching you’ll find it really hard to catch up.
  • During induction week you should attend the Mathematica and MapleTA workshops: These are software systems used to complete homework and to assess your work. It is vital that you are familiar with them.

       Late Arriving MSc Students: Please go to the Maths Administration                Office upon your arrival or contact the MSc Course Director, Dr Sharia, in          McCrea Building Room 236 or by email t.sharia@royalholloway.ac.uk or            telephone 01784 414331. Induction details can be found here.
