Open Days

Find out everything you need to know about Royal Holloway at one of our Open Days.

An Open Day is the perfect way to find out if we’re the university for you. We hold three on-campus Open Days a year - one in the summer and two in the autumn - along with Online Open Days and campus tours, so you can explore and get a real feel for student life.

Our next Open Days are taking place on Saturday 5 October and Saturday 23 November. Bookings are now open for our October event - sign up now to secure your spot!


What happens at an Open Day?

Open Days run from 9.30am-4pm and you’re welcome to stay for just a morning or afternoon, or the entire day - it’s completely up to you!

All of our academic departments run talks and taster sessions so you can find out more about your chosen subject and meet your future lecturers. There's also central talks and tours of our accommodation and facilities. Best of all, you'll be able to explore our beautiful campus, and see where you'll learn, study and relax as a Royal Holloway student.

If you can't attend in person, you can join one of our Online Open Days, where you'll still get to meet current students and academic staff and enjoy virtual tours of our campus. Our campus tours give you the chance to visit outside of the main Open Days for a guided tour with one of our student ambassadors, where you'll see our facilities and can ask as many questions as you like.
