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. 

Halls accommodation is extremely popular so it is important to apply by the deadlines given in order to secure a room.

New undergraduate students and non-degree seeking students



Continuing students



New postgraduate students, couples and family accommodation



Private sector




Second year direct entrants

If you  are transferring from another university to Royal Holloway into your second year, please apply as Undergraduate New (UGNEW)

Applying through Clearing

We are unable to guarantee accommodation to any new students applying through Clearing so it is important that you accept your course as quickly as possible in order to be able to make an application.

Royal Holloway is always a popular choice amongst applicants and availability in halls of residence is therefore limited. There are a range of high quality private accommodation options in the local area and we will provide considerable support to Clearing applicants in finding a suitable place to live close to the campus. For further information please see our Accommodation for Clearing Applicants web pages.

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.  

The Application process for new undergraduate students will not open until the 6th May when you will be applying via the new online application portal. The process is no longer first come first served so there is no need to rush to apply on the first day. Ensure you have met the closing date to secure accommodation.
