Student Accommodation

At Royal Holloway we understand how important it is to find the right sort of accommodation for you as you become independent and set out on a new chapter in life. We have resources you will find useful in helping you find a suitable place to live whilst studying at Royal Holloway, whether it's in Halls (campus accommodation) or in the local area. 

Halls accommodation is extremely popular so it is important to apply by the published deadlines in order to increase your chances of securing a room in Halls.

New undergraduate students and non-degree seeking students



Continuing students



New postgraduate students, couples and family accommodation



Private sector




Are you looking for Halls accommodation from now to the end of the 2015-16 academic year?

If the answer is 'yes' and you are not tied into a contract elsewhere, you can submit an application for student accommodation online. We'll then check to see whether we can find a room to match your preferences.

Second year direct entrants

If you  are transferring from another university to Royal Holloway into your second year, please apply through the Accommodation Portal using the New Undergraduate student category (UGNEW).

Applying through Clearing

As soon as your UCAS Track shows status 'U/F' please register with the Accommodation Portal and submit your application for Halls accommodation online. You will then be added to a waiting list to be contacted when a room becomes available.

Or if you prefer not to wait and to find your own accommodation please visit our private sector accommodation webpages.

Insurance applicants

If you have selected Royal Holloway as your insurance choice you will not be able to make an application for Halls accommodation until you are confirmed with us and should then follow the instructions for Clearing applicants.

Late Applicants

If you miss the application deadline you can still apply in the normal way but will not be considered until all of those who applied before the advertised deadlines have been made an offer of accommodation. It is very important that you make your application at the earliest possible opportunity.


The College has been formally accredited under the UUK Code of Practice, which is one of the approved codes of practice for Higher Education “managed and controlled” accommodation under the Housing Act 2004.
