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. Student Accommodation will help you find a suitable place to live whilst studying at Royal Holloway, whether it's in Halls (campus accommodation) or in the local area. 

For new students joining Royal Holloway in September 2016, the application windows for halls accommodation will open from spring 2016 - further details will be added in due course. Halls accommodation is extremely popular so it is important to apply by the published deadlines in order to secure a room.

Applying through Clearing

This year Royal Holloway has been a popular choice for applicants. This means that there may be limited rooms available for Clearing applicants in our halls of residence. You can apply for a room once your UCAS Track shows 'U/F' by completing our online form, when you will be added to a waiting list. 

Or if you would prefer to find a room in private sector then please go here: https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/studyhere/accommodation/privatesector.aspx

Insurance applicants

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

Late Applicants

Should you miss the deadline you will need to apply in the normal way but will not be considered until all of those who apply before the advertised deadlines have been made an offer of a room. 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.
