Greatest Student Union in UK imo
Great courses and great place to study, clubs and societies were also amazing both before and during the pandemic. Highly supportive lecturers. Just wish it were closer to London 😆
The campus itself is stunning with the views amazing while also the teaching and lecturers make everything understandable. On campus the facilities for example the library is very good while also having Starbucks and many other food and drink places on campus
The Accomodation is very close to the town center and the train station
Great campus and vibe, you’ll never feel alone
Very happy here, I’ll certainly miss it when I graduate
A beautiful university campus with friendly staff and a variety of opportunities to get stuck in with!
I've been here for a couple of months now, and I am very impressed by the setting, and atmosphere at the Garage. You always feel welcome and at home when you arrive, and there are a wide range of activities offered. The services are also just as good, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to go with private accommodation.
Incredible campus, everything is very cool and nice.
The campus really is beautiful, very nice to walk around outside and founders is a unique and lovely building. All of my lecturers are engaging and helpful. However nights out suck, the two small venues host events once a week which both feel like school discos. Sports are good but societies feel rather lacklustre so flatmates tend to just hang around in kitchens. It’s not near enough to London to get there regularly and Egham is not somewhere anyone wants to be so you feel kind of stuck here. The student body is just too small, I feel like I’ve met everyone and I’ve been here less than two months. It’s also completely deserted at the weekend and honestly rather depressing. Basically you’ll be okay if you get on with flatmates and like a quiet environment rather than vibrant social/nightlife
The campus is beautiful and clean, and the teachers are in charge.
An amazing experience with modern facilities and kind and helpful teachers and students.
Very nice campus with lots of clubs and activities
Beautiful campus and very friendly staff.
Very good university. With lots of learning spaces to help revise and learn. Teaching is done to a high level with lots of support for students
You can find everything you need as well as the facalty being extremely helpful
Incredible campus and dedicated teachers
Royal Holloway has an amazing campus, and good facilities
Royal Holloway has a beautiful campus and one of the most unique buildings in the world.
Wifi is strong especially at point like the library or lecture buildings. The campus overall is very clean and well kept with modern infrastructure
Great facilities beautiful campus friendly people
the staff is always super helpful and has managed to solve any problems i’ve had in very little time! they also go above and beyond to make sure i’m having a comfortable and enjoyable experience
Good university with a friendly environment The campus is in a nice location
this is of the most beautiful campus in London, I love it so much .And I am glad to study in there and meet more friends to start a new life
My review shouldn’t be considered because i am a new student who didn’t attend this uni yet but good news , I have been accepted
Came here to study Data Sciences , but college don't give a f*** about your career. Even if you get a job these so called scholar Professor of Data science department will come up with something stupid to stop you from getting successful. Their way of teaching also sucks although university is not bad. I hope someone in the administration stops these fool professors of Data science.
Overall it was a helpful and friendly environment on campus. Due to covid many clubs and societies didn’t run however there were many interesting societies. In addition, as a lot of this year was online I was wasn’t aware of many facilities and services so it would have been better if they let everyone know about these services early on this year.
It’s a good university with a beautiful campus and great amenities ie EWD building. The lecturers/seminar tutors are also supportive and extremely good at what they do
Great history department with supportive teaching staff
Everything is fantastic, I love it
Very nice, but small campus university
Although it's a gorgeous campus, the surrounding area doesn't have much to do. The clubs and societies are also quite expensive to join, plus the gym is small and expensive. There are some great places to eat around campus and the library is quite good (although I think the addition of the commuter hub that guaranteed spaces for commuting students in the library should be something that stays permanently) The biological sciences department was really good and I liked having a personal tutor as a first point of call when it came to any problems with the course of even the uni itself.
Unfortunately I could not participate in clubs and societies due to the pandemic. There was also a lack of information regarding these clubs. However, everything else about the university is very good.
I am very pleased with my choice of university. Royal Holloway is a big university that is situated just outside of London so I can go sightseeing whoever I decide to. The university itself is very well organised and one can easily use the services provided - such as Careers one.
Nice campus based uni experience
Regardless of few lessons being in person, the uni has pt of facilities open to offer students
The university doesn’t have enough for students! More food stalls needed It’s a beautiful campus though The library needs better WiFi
Great university and handled the pandemic very well.
Great uni with good modern facilities. Great teaching and support.
Lovely really good uni xxxxxxxxx
Going to Royal Holloway has been a brilliant experience, the professors are great, and I have undoubtedly made lifelong friends here
Has been a great space to study and live in but Covid response could have been better at points
Beautiful campus with excellent facilities and a variety of societies and sports clubs for all levels of interest and ability. Teaching is excellent, night life is good and location is great.
The campus is quite small, but very compact and enclosed. Sociable activity is rewarded. There's much more to the area than to the eye. The nature surrounding the area is beautiful.
Very beautiful university at a great location. The clubs and societies are wonderful and there is a large variety to choose from.
RHUL offers lots of great student facilities, which over mental health, social well being, as well as extra curricular clubs and societies for all to enjoy. although the wifi on site is not very fast, its range extends all over campus so there is no place where access is an issue. The student union is also very open to hearing and adapting to students best ineterest.
Great Uni, not the best socially but nonetheless allows you a fun uni experience!
Lots of study spaces and social spaces on campus. Small and friendly.
Loved it here, would recommend. Lovely place to study and live
The campus is small but feels all very well connected, facilities are easy to get to - but services not so much.
The university is incredibly beautiful, very friendly and with amazing facilities, resources, staff and students; couldn't ask for better.
highly recommended and with so many facilities.
Great place. Top university for research. Highly regarded. I am happy.
Very good. Beautiful and professionally. I enjoyed it overall.
Wellbeing and support is appalling. GP surgery is shocking - rude staff and constantly changing GP's who don't follow up with you.
Hello everyone, Before applying in Royal Holloway University of London, Everyone needs to have a conversation with their seniors. This university does not provide much assistant to students. Students have to face so many problems because their poor management. University looks so cool because of the structure. Teachers doesn't reply to students by the email. Computer department sucks. If I consider placements, they don't even provide any opportunities so in all, one year industry Visa is a waste of money. Students service center tends to help students a bit. But My friends who lived in George Elliot halls faced so many problems but they did not help any of them. They did not change the rooms even if they have vacancy. you will feel so irritated and as a international students it is so hard to live and sustain in those conditions. I will suggest not to join this university at all. Such a waste of money and waste of time.
Loved every minute of my time here! Accommodation is amazing
It has been a great experience. The university is excellent in research and also has very good contacts with companies, so students have all the time feedback from experienced professionals
I studied Modern History and Politics during my time at Royal Holloway. My course was well structured, all my lecturers were passionate, inspired me to be more, and were deeply knowledgeable as well as helpful. The variety of optional history units was simply superb. The university itself can feel like it is run life a business at times from the admin side, but the academic departments themselves cannot be faulted. During my time there I have always felt cared about and as if my studies genuinely mattered. The campus can be very quiet at times but I would not say boring as the local town of Egham is very near and the train station is also a short walk away meaning a person can rich London in under an hour. The Student's Union tries but it isn't the best in the world, despite this there are a great number of societies at the university which offered many of my friends much enjoyment. I personally loved my time at Royal Holloway and would recommend anyone to go there.
I started my study last Sept 2018 and I like studying here. In general, their student supports are very good and your voices are somehow heard and considered. A new library building which looks so cool although I really hope students could also help maintain it and not break some facilities in it. Many part time jobs available. While other people complained the place and neighborhood is quiet, I really like it because if you want to go to London, it's only a 45 minutes away buy train and Egham is serene and a perfect place for studying. What I still find it a bit difficult is a hilly long walk from the train station but manageable :)
The facilities available at the university are the best
There are three main problems with RHUL: it's overcrowded, it's expensive, it's boring. New library that doesn't fit in even the majority of students on busy days, if it's exam season forget it. Three new accommodations have been built but they haven't increased the size of the Uni. One that is too small to be in the Russel Group it reminds me of a large school, not a place for 12,000+ people. Catered accommodation doesn't come with any cooking appliances, so purchasing food is the only option. Food that is supposed to come with Catered accommodation has to be paid for, adding up to large amount every month just too eat the food that's there for us to survive. Eating on campus would normally set you back around 10 pounds and that doesn't include coffees. They even have a policy, so that cups cost 20p not a big deal; but you can't get a free cup of water here as a result. It's boring. The only exciting pub was bought by the University and shut down.
i went to the uni for a term and dropped out, the campus is beautiful but that’s about all it has going for it - it’s in the middle of nowhere and i found that to be extremely isolating and claustrophobic. this element made it feel like still being at school with people having small friendship groups and the lack of town/city living. clubs and societies on offer are decent and well organised but nights at the SU could definitely be improved on considering the absence of any other real nightlife nearby, could also look into better mental health support, particularly for freshers where this is often an issue.
Terrible mental health support. Terrible health centre. Not enough study spaces for students in new library. University is isolating and cliquey.
I have just started at royal holloway but so far I am absolutely loving it. The support I am receiving is so good and everyone is very welcoming. The newly built library is excellent and founders is just stunning.
In the middle of no where but still fun
Absolutely bullying international students
Small gym, no social aspect, founders looks cool
The wifi is surprisingly good at the university all over campus, the students u ion organise great events in the day and at night. Clubs and societies are interesting but can take up a lot of time
Wifi is good but has gone down at points, socs and clubs are good
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.
Good campus Quite hilly Good when new library open Lack of socials and nights out
Beautiful campus A lot to do on site Not really much to do outside of campus But great student feel
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.
It's a good place, if anything a bit small but if that's your thing then this is the place for you.
Terrible location no nightlife full of racists
The university has managed a good student experience campus with good student facilities, clubs and education but lacks on providing social experiences.
Love the university, area and people. Internet can be a bit slow though.
The SU is really disorganised but if you want a quiet uni life then 10/10
My experiences are absolutely out of expectation and now I can't be happier to be here. It's at a good location - close enough to London yet far away enough from all its distraction. Besides, we have the stunning orange building which make rhul one of the most beautiful uni in uk!
Beautiful campus, welcoming environment, gorgeous libraries I love it here, can't fault it
Love the campus and love the different facilities
Best uni! Caters for everyone! It's great for those who love to party and those who don't! So many clubs and everyone is friendly!
Great university, awesome campus!
Very pretty, not a huge amount to do on campus with regards to nightlife if the SU and medicine didn't take your fancy
The campus is fantastic, and opportunities to be involved in the life of a smaller campus community are many.
Generally a very lovely campus with great facilities and many on-campus places to go
Love the uni, even though the nightlife isn't the best....but you miss the SU over the summer
This is a quite a small campus university, so it has all the limitations one would expect from that. But RHUL is currently undergoing some major re-development so this might change quite soon.
After looking at Russel Groups and being accepted by some of the best universities I ranked this above them all for it being so friendly and welcoming as well as beautiful and academicly outstanding in my field
Tiny SU and generally over crowed, wish medicine was a little better. Clubs and societies are very insular in my experience and very intimidating
The SU is a little subpar, you really have to be quite drunk to have fun in there, but the rest of it is amazing.
i love the SU. they work so hard for the students, listen to their requests and suggestions. there are so many clubs and societies, they make an otherwise quiet uneventful place and incredibly fun, worthwhile place to be
Good uni with a good size campus and friendly atmosphere
Can't paint a perfect enough picture of the uni, the students union is fun and the campus is beautiful (it was until all the building works began...)
The uni itself is brilliant and the facilities for nights out on campus are good. However there are very few place to go out outside of uni
Nice campus clean and safe. SU is expensive
Small campus, which brings a small number of good opportunities and societies
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.
Great location and beautiful campus. It has a small student population, which is really nice, and it's very diverse.
Needs more night life but it's what you make of it really
Good university, picturesque and excellent societies
Not nearly enough revision spaces
Really good Uni but far away from everything
Lovely community feel on campus with lots of welcoming societies. Club nights could use improvement.
Royal Holloway is the best uni to have fun. However, the campus lacks on restaurants and bars. Egham is not the best town i ve ever seen, but people are great.
Excellent campus and facilities. Course very enjoyable.
Great University, amazing people, crap SU!
Yes it is very good, i'm very pleased with it
So far staying here has been great, i've met loads of great people
The academic and social facilities here at Royal Holloway are amazing and the actual campus is beautiful. However the WiFi could be improved
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.
It okay I guess. Looks pretty, but is a building site atm
I enjoy the campus experience but I think the socials could provide more volunteer works
Loving my time here so far, a fair bit to do around the uni and nice and close to plenty of places to go, i.e. London, Windsor, Kingston, Reading
Stunning campus, few societies compared to other unis, but still fun
There is however a lack of nightlife
One of the most beautiful universities. Very caring staff. Neat and clean residence. High speed WiFi.
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!
The nicest community of students you will ever come across
I love my University and courses, the SU is lacking but there is an awesome Pub to head to on a Monday, they are currently dealing with the lack of study spaces which definately was neccessary.
Literally the most fantastic place. Beautiful campus. Brilliant courses and lecturers
I am still studying at Royal Holloway. I am really enjoying my time here. My classes are really good. I am part of the women's football team which is really fun and part of many clubs very well organized and entertaining.
It is a beautiful university with great societies and sport options and a brilliant careers centre. The only thing that can let it down are pricy drinks at the su and student bars.
Great and beautiful uni but the su can be a bit disappointing
College is damm beautiful and people are friendly. Campus security is also good here.
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.
Beautiful, great energy amongst students, always something to do
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.
Lovely university, very friendly, beautiful surroundings
Not like normal universities in cities. Mostly on campus. But always events going on. And coaches to London for nights out are cheap and good fun. Friendly atmosphere as well.
Communal atmosphere with good facilities
There are so many societies that are available and even if they are to do with a course you're not studying or a culture you're not a part of - you're still able to join and feel just as much involved.
Royal Holloway, University of London is not really IN London but it makes up for that being an epic community of people, which most of them being international, which makes it very interesting and a unique experience.
Wide range of facilities and societies. Wifi connection is not constant all over the campus
Wish there was a swimming pool and more options for clubbing.lots of societies though.
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!
2nd year - first year was fab.. Bring on the second!
Amazing place that can not be challenged friendly, outgoing unique people.
really nice uni, lovely campus. Great lecturers and a friendly feel to everything
Stunning campus based university with all you need with in the walls of the uni.
A beautiful campus, where I've had the time of my life so far.
Love the Uni, homely but fun. Lots of lovely people and a beautiful campus
A brilliant university with helpful students, amazingly beautiful campus and many employment prospects.
Amazing experience in every aspect
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!
I absolutely love it, the best choice i've ever made was coming here
Beautiful campus with a personality, second to none
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.
A great campus atmosphere, great lecturers and a beautiful campus (especially Founders building and the Boilerhouse). A wonderful place to study.
I could not recommend royal holloway more. The whole experience is absolutely incredible. The societies are a particular highlight!
Had a ball at Royal Holloway, excellent courses and lecturers, lots of Halls options, great nightlife.
it was such a brilliant experience studying here!
Studying at Royal Holloway University of London is absolutely great. Campus amazing, courses and academic staff super nice, great job offers if you work well. Party hard, work harder !
Good uni, needs more swimming pool
Lack promotion of societies Lack of range of the book and space in the library
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!
Review Royal Holloway University of London
Magnificent campus, many opportunities, nice people, interesting course with good seminar classes.
Could teach more hours Night Socials in the surrounding towns could be better
