Our university was founded by two social reformers who pioneered the ideal of education and knowledge for all who could benefit. Their vision lives on today. As one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities, we are home to some of the world’s foremost authorities in the sciences, arts, business, economics and law. As teachers and researchers they change lives, expand minds and help current and future leaders understand power and responsibility. We are strengthened by diversity, and welcome students and academics who travel from all over the world to study and work here, ensuring an international and multi-cultural perspective within a close-knit and historic campus.incorporated as Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, is a public research university and a constituent college of the federal University of London. It has six schools, 21 academic departments and approximately 10,500 undergraduate and postgraduate students from over 100 countries. The campus is located west of Egham, Surrey, 19 miles (31 km) from central London.The Egham campus was founded in 1879 by the Victorian entrepreneur and philanthropist Thomas Holloway. Royal Holloway College was officially opened in 1886 by Queen Victoria as an all-women college. It became a member of the University of London in 1900. In 1945, the college admitted male postgraduate students, and in 1965, around 100 of the first male undergraduates.The university is made up of a number of schools and departments organised into three faculties,and 20 academic departments. One Dean heads each faculty, and is supported by Deputy Deans.The Principal takes the role of appointing The Heads of Department, who in turn report to their faculty's Dean.The Royal Holloway Students' Union (SURHUL) actively represents and provides a service for the needs and interests of all students studying at Royal Holloway. It is claimed to have "a reputation as one of the best unions in the London area", in the words of The Independent.The students' union provides much of the on-campus entertainment, organizing and sponsoring the sport clubs and special-interest societies, on top of providing welfare advice to students through the Student Advice Center.Most halls are part of the main campus, and initially allocated to first year students who firmly accept a conditional or unconditional offer.Accommodation prices at the university can vary, ranging from £85-£163 per week. Halls are either self-catered or catered, with students living in the latter entitled to a 50 per cent discount off the normal price of the majority of food sold in the dining halls. Around 2,900 students live in halls of residence. We scored above the sector average in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2021, with an overall satisfaction rating of 77%.We have a bold vision for Royal Holloway’s future and a clear strategy for how to make this happen.Our new three year strategic plan, 2021 to 2024, has been inspired by the Deed of Foundation which established Royal Holloway College which opened in 1896. Royal Holloway College merged with Bedford College in 1985, providing the foundations of the university we are today. The Deed states: The Founder believes that the education of women should not be exclusively regulated by the tradition and method of former ages; but that it should be founded on those studies and sciences which the experience of modern times has shown to be the most valuable, and the best adapted to meet the intellectual and social requirements of the students. The strategic plan considers how we can meet the needs of our modern times in terms of the provision of higher education and research based innovation. By building on our well regarded academic strengths, and by aligning to needs, for example in graduate employability, programme portfolio, access, civic influence, partnership and knowledge exchange, we can deliver on our purpose as a university.
