Book a campus tour

We are delighted to be able to offer regular campus tours, showcasing our beautiful campus and excellent facilities.

Guided campus tours

These guided tours take place regularly offering prospective students the opportunity to discover our beautiful campus in Egham, Surrey. Your guide will take you around the campus, showing you facilities such as teaching spaces and the library.

Our next campus tours will take place on:

Wednesday 30 November

Self-led tours

If you are unable to attend on one of the dates above, you are welcome to register for a self-led tour of our campus instead. There won't be a student ambassador to show you around for these tours, but once you are registered, you'll be sent a guide which will help you find your way around campus and learn more about our buildings, history and facilities. 

If you book on to a self-led tour and plan to drive to campus there is parking available - you just need to register for this by providing your car details during registration, or by emailing campus-tours@rhul.ac.uk.

Where does the tour start?

One of our Student Ambassadors will be waiting to greet you in the Emily Wilding Davison Building foyer. Starting with a welcome presentation, the tour will begin promptly at your booked time. We recommend you arrive 10 minutes early. The ambassadors should be wearing a bright orange top. 

Will I get to see the accommodation?

We can't guarantee that you will be able to see accommodation as part of this tour - it often depends on the availability of the students living in our show flats. However, you will be able to see the outside of some of our on-campus accommodation as part of the tour. Virtual tours of our Halls are available here.

How long does the tour take?

The tour should take approximately 1 hour.

Will I be able to visit an academic department?

Our Student Ambassador can point out the various department buildings during the campus tour. Many of our staff are still working from home at times and so if you would like to talk to your department we recommend getting in touch with them directly to arrange either a face to face meeting or a Teams call.

Do I need to book tickets for my guests?

You can bring as many guests as you like and will only need one booking for yourself and your guests.

Where can I park?

It is free to park on campus for the duration of your visit. If you decide to drive after completing the booking form you can contact us on +44 (0)1784 414112 or email campus-tours@royalholloway.ac.uk to register your vehicle.

Can I get there using public transport?

Egham railway station is the nearest station to campus. It is approximately 1.2 miles from our Emily Wilding Davison Building and there are bus and taxi services between Egham railway station and campus.

Can I book at the last minute?

Bookings can be made until the tour start time through our online booking system, links to which can be found on this page. 

Can I update, change or cancel my booking?

It is possible to amend, update or cancel your booking from within your Eventbrite 'My Events' page.
