I have not got a single bad thing to say about Royal Holloway. Absolutely stunning university, I am so glad I chose to come study here. I am a final year student and I am very sad to leave because I have enjoyed my experience here so much.

The university is too focused on making profit for example, you need parking permits to park and they often close parking for filming companies such as Netflix. Lecture materials are poor and the actual lectures lack quality.

The worst student experience of my life. Everything about this university has been expensive, hard, and boring. The staff are unsupportive and lazy, they never want to actually listen and help. The town and university has nothing fun or interesting to do. I know so many people who dropped out and joined other universities and are much happier now. I wish I dropped out too.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

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.
