What is intercollegiate accommodation?
As part of the University of London, Royal Holloway has access to small number of rooms in intercollegiate halls of residence in central London that is available to full-time postgraduate students.
For the 2022/23 academic year, we were able to offer townhouse accommodation in Garden Halls (located between Bloomsbury and Kings Cross, Central London) comprising single, self-catered rooms with shared facilities on 50-week contracts (11 September 2022 to 26 August 2023), costing approximately £255.15 per week.
Due to the limited number of places, intercollegiate accommodation was available on a first-come-first-served basis to full-time postgraduate students only.
When could I apply?
The application process for intercollegiate accommodation arranged through Royal Holloway for 2022/23 opened at 10am (GMT) on 7 April 2022. We were able to continue to accept applications until all rooms were filled: submission of an application was not a guarantee that we would be able to make you an offer.
Applications for intercollegiate accommodation arranged through Royal Holloway are now closed for 2022/23. If you are interested in securing accommodation in Central London please now apply directly through the University of London. As rooms become available, these will appear on the University of London portal.
When will I hear on the outcome of my application?
Applications were processed on a first-come-first-served basis, with an update within four weeks of application to let applicants know whether they could expect to receive an offer of intercollegiate accommodation, or if their application was being held on a waiting list.
Specific questions regarding applications for intercollegiate accommodation through Royal Holloway should be directed to the Student Services Centre.
