Beautiful campus with amazing teachers and facilities. Good structure within the departments and general school organization. A well rounded school offering many different subjects and extracurricular activities for students. The wifi tends to periodically stop working but it depends on location. The departments are very dedicated to making sure students find careers after graduating a huge plus in today's economy. One limit is lack of variety in work; science and math department's are required to write multiple essay's which within certain departments doesn't make sense as a way to test knowledge. A boarder range of work for students would be extremely helpful for students to learn.

This university is great! It is a community. all the students feel like a big family living in small Egham. Although Egham doesn't have much to do, stains and Windsor are just around the corner with cinemas and Nandos and Primark... Founder's castle is the most beautiful building ever!

I got here through clearing, and it's a bit dead in comparison to the unit i wanted to go to. However, the campus is nice and has great facilities, and I like everything being close together. I wouldn't come here if you want a party uni, but it's a nice smaller community, and a really pleasant campus.

The campus facilities are good, will be better once the new library is open. I sometimes feel like we could do with some more shops (SU shop is quite expensive), for example a small pharmacy may be useful and a bank like seen on other campuses. The clubs and societies I have done joined I really like. I haven't used the careers service yet. The Wi-Fi is okay, but can cut out at weird points, and please fix Moodle, it keeps crashing at really inconvenient times. I think the SU whilst having some good ideas, doesn't necessarily go about them in the right way, and doesn't subsidise the right things, helping to make living at university fun and affordable for all.

The wifi keeps dropping out and in when travelling throughout the uni. However, when inside a building, at the beggining of the year, it was brilliant. Near the end of the year however, they started doing construction work to improve the wifi, meaning that our year had to suffer for you guys!

Royal Holloway is a good university IF in your 3 year stay you don't need any extra support. My friends as well as myself faced some issues out of our control during our time at university. Royal Holloway has 'support' in place... or so in theory. When you actually need it no one knows anything and help is anything but available. Study at this uni if you are sure nothing happens to you in those three years because the support is non existent. Not to mention the unmptivating lectures who really are not interested in students.

Royal Holloway is a great place to study. Some of the facilities are a little out of date but there is much work being down updating them and the stuff more then make up for it. The only problem is the students union which is far to over priced and a bit rubbish but as long as you get drunk enough in pre drinks it wouldn't ruin your night.

The founders building is incredible but don't base your whole opinion on the building. Royal Holloway is situated in Egham which is very dull. The campus is relatively small and so the night life is very crowded. There are just pubs and a small SU. If you like the small homely feel of university then this Uni is ideal. But in my opinion, it's too small to feel like a University. The food is really good though!

Internet is surprisingly good here, I get about 10mb/s on average, the student union is overpriced and generally takes ages to get served, but there's a much better bar called Medicine a short walk away near The Hub. Unfortunately the SU is seemingly the only place down South, or at least in Surrey, to sell Red Stripe lager. So I dunno.

Absolutely beautiful campus and some excellent accommodation (Kingswood aside, it's 20 mins walk away and you'll often have either no power or hot water). The new library due 2017 looks like it'll be amazing. The SU is pretty decent but not huge, Medicine is okay and Stumble Inn is currently flooded and not open. Spirits, however, cost a fair bit (£6 for a double vodka and red bull??) although pints aren't too bad (£3ish), so it can be cheaper to drink off-campus. The uni seems good for career opportunities and the internet in my halls was great, 95 mbs download speed and there's WiFi across campus.

It's pretty and we have deer and foxes but also you're going to feel like you just survived the apocalypse with the only other people on earth pretty quickly.

Beautiful campus university with a forest area/lake going through the middle of it. All the amenities. You can go weeks without leaving campus! Supermarket and train station about a mile away. Lots of opportunities to be involved in clubs and societies. Even opportunities to create your own. Support system out of this world. You are never left without the help you need. Halls stylish and modern, maintenance complaints dealt with quickly. Double beds in the new halls. Catering is pretty standard. I had about 2 instances in my entire first year when the internet was down. Lots of jobs available on campus. Jobs fairs happen in the su during the year. Fresh fruit and veg market in the su once a week as well as occasional poster sales and plant sales and vintage sales. Fantastic university. Founders building is stunning and a perfect place to chill. Come and study here!

campus is not bad, wish there were more ppl in d societies. because some societies only hve 2 or 3 ppl turning up? Food has improved over the years so well done. But still alot more room for improvement, really. lol. Imagine has changed so that is good. One more thing, rhul is in the most boring town ever. 1st 2 years were bad for me because i found d town depressing. but by my 3rd year, i started to proper adjust to Egham life. a very simple n slow paced life. :) campus feels very very safe and it is so international and that's what i love most about rhul!

For a university based in such a small town, there is surprisingly always something to do, whether it be taking part in a society or going to one of the libraries/bars. I've had a great first year here and couldn't be happier.

Great university, wasn't to happy to begin with but it really grows on you, the SU is rubbish but you learn to love it. Loads of career opportunities everywhere, tons of societies I swear there is one for everything

Beautiful campus, good lecturers, plenty to get involved in. Facilities could be improved if there was more space on campus. Su is bit shifty for a night out but you just have to get super drunk... night life is also not great due to the location of the area

The library does not have enough resources nor space. The sports area is well equiped. Clubs and societies are very active. The music is not the greatest at the SU, but it is a nice environment as most students tend to go due to it being the only club in Egham. The internet is efficient.

Over 75 clubs and socs to join! Campus is so pretty and only 40 mins from Central London! Enjoy Virginia Water! SU hosts the best nights e.g. paint and foam parties, ACS, Bhangra, Tim Westwood, MTV nights and more. Live during freshers!

Beautiful campus with amazing teachers and facilities. Good structure within the departments and general school organization. A well rounded school offering many different subjects and extracurricular activities for students. The wifi tends to periodically stop working but it depends on location. The departments are very dedicated to making sure students find careers after graduating a huge plus in today's economy. One limit is lack of variety in work; science and math department's are required to write multiple essay's which within certain departments doesn't make sense as a way to test knowledge. A boarder range of work for students would be extremely helpful for students to learn.

From when I started looking at unis at A-Level to coming on an open to then studying here, Royal Holloway has always been my first choice. You have the benefits of campus life with a nice community feel while being placed in between london, reading and windsor. It'It's just the best experience you could want in a uni!
