Royal Holloway, University of London
Location of university
Please comment on the location of your university (city, town, etc), the campus, the facilities, and student accommodation.
"Egham is a small town and we have a small but beautiful campus with lovely grounds, especially in the summer. The library could be better and bigger but they are currently building a larger one. I think student accommodation is quite decent as long as you don't stay in Kingswood (which is far out and an effort to get to)."
"Egham is not the greatest of areas. However, Windsor more than makes up for this."
"University accommodation is great but the local accommodation can be hit and miss."
"It's great, I love the campus!"
"The area is very good. It is low on crime but may be too quiet for some students. The facilities are excellent, even though the current library is small a new and excellent library is being built. Food in the Founders dining hall is cheap but a bit school dinnerish, though there are often very good meals too. The hub has much nicer food but is a bit pricey. Halls are very good with Williamson being particularly nice. We have small flats with eight students sharing a kitchen and dining room. Reid hall was good for freshers but had 16 students living in catered halls that were often noisy while other halls (like Williamson) were easier for socialising due to the ease of getting to know everyone in the kitchen."
"It's near London but also a quiet area that's perfect for studying. There's modern accommodation as well as a nice atmosphere, great gym and active sports societies. We also have a new library and accommodation coming up."
"The surrounding town is a bit boring, although London is very close, which is a relief. The university facilities are also good."
"The location is stunning, though they need more lecture halls where you can see the boards. Royal Holloway doesn't seem to have many so it's sometimes hard to see unless you are on the front row."
"Egham is a quiet town and could benefit from some more clothes shops but is good for restaurants and supermarkets. However, Staines is nearby and easily accessible for a wider selection. The student accommodation is good and the campus is beautiful."
