Royal Holloway University of London International Centre, Egham, Surrey


Royal Holloway was ranked number 10 in the UK and number 31 in the world for international outlook (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2016/17). That is testimony to the global impact of our research, as well as the diversity of our staff and students on campus. 

Royal Holloway is located in Egham, Surrey, a quiet, student-friendly town. Although the campus is only 40 minutes from central London by train, the surroundings are a world away from the busy capital. Situated in 135 acres, and close to Runnymede National Trust park, the College provides everything students require from a weekly international food market to laundry facilities, social venues and a variety of restaurants. We ensure our students have everything they need within easy reach, and the staff at the ISC are on hand to offer assistance with anything else our students need.

When you’re a student at Royal Holloway, you’ll find all the facilities you need on campus. We continually work to develop and invest in our campus. The award-winning Windsor Building holds our new, spacious lecture theatres and a variety of seminar rooms for teaching. We provide a host of additional facilities on campus to ensure our students have all they need; this includes: multi-faith worship facilities, college shop, library, places to eat and drink and excellent sporting facilities.
