About Royal Holloway, University of London

Since Queen Victoria presided over the grand opening of Royal Holloway on 30 June 1886, the College has continued to grow in size and status to become one of the top research-led institutions in the country.

Today, Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal, is regularly welcomed as a distinguished guest in her role as the present Chancellor of the University of London. This maintains our privileged association with royal families past and present. We are one of the UK's leading research-intensive universities.

Based in Surrey, our campus is among the most beautiful in the world. As one of the UK’s leading universities, with 19 academic departments spanning the arts and humanities, sciences, social sciences, management and economics.

We're part of the University of London, but our safe, leafy campus is based in Egham, Surrey, less then 40 minutes by train to central London and just seven miles from Heathrow airport..
