The college's campus is located at Egham, Surrey, just outside the boundary of Greater London. This was originally the campus of Royal Holloway College, an establishment founded by Victorian entrepreneur Thomas Holloway as a women-only college in 1879. Royal Holloway College became part of the University of London in 1900, and men were first admitted in 1945 (postgraduates) and 1965 (undergraduates). In 1985, Royal Holloway College merged with Bedford College (another formerly all-women's college in London which was founded in 1849 and, just like Royal Holloway College, joined the University of London in 1900 and became fully co-educational in 1965). The merged college was named Royal Holloway and Bedford New College (RHBNC). This remains the official registered name of the college, though the name was changed for day-to-day use to "Royal Holloway, University of London" by the College Council in 1992.

The campus at Egham is dominated by its original building, known as the "Founder's Building", designed by William Henry Crossland and inspired by the Château de Chambord in the Loire Valley, France. The building was officially opened in 1886 by Queen Victoria, who allowed the use of "Royal" in the college's name. The Founder's Building is part of a campus which is set in 55 hectares (135 acres) of parkland and is within walking distance of Windsor Great Park. On-campus student accommodation is some of the most expensive available in the London area. The size of the campus has also allowed the college to develop some of the best sports facilities of any university institution in the London area, and helped build the college's reputation as one of the leading sporting institutions in the South-East of England. The campus is also well-known for its Picture Gallery, located within the Founder's Building, housing a collection of over seventy pieces of Victorian era art given to the college at the time of its founding by Thomas Holloway. William Henry Crossland was a nineteenth century architect from the United Kingdom. ... The front façade of the Château de Chambord, viewed from the south. ...

Founder's Building

The college has recently undergone a £100 million investment programme which has seen the addition of new buildings and the refurbishment of some of the old. The scheme has seen the building of 564 new study bedrooms in two new blocks, Gowar and Wedderburn, which will be used as accommodation for rowers at the 2012 Olympic Games and were opened in September 2004. Similar accommodation blocks were completed in September 2007 to replace Athlone, Cameron and Williamson halls, three aging accommodation blocks built in the 1960s and knocked down in 2006. The new buildings, named Butler, Tuke and Williamson after former principals, have been designed to be environmentally friendly, featuring a sedum-planted undulating roof, and cedar shingles to reflect the surrounding woodland setting, and the rooms have en suite showers and toilets, internet connections and well-equipped kitchens. In addition to the new accommodation, the campus now has the new £8 million Windsor Building, a lecture theatre complex opened in September 2006, featuring a state-of-the-art 400 seat auditorium and eight new seminar rooms. The ageing Bourne Laboratory science complex has been rejuvenated in a £12 million scheme, whilst the first phase of an extension to the School of Management was completed in Summer 2007.

Students' Union

Students' Union building.

The Royal Holloway Students' Union (SURHUL) provides entertainment and pastoral services for the student body. This includes providing the on-campus entertainment and social venues through to organising and sponsoring the sport clubs and special-interest societies, and providing advice and counselling to students. Image File history File linksMetadata Download high-resolution version (2304x1728, 774 KB) The Students union building of Royal Holloway, University of London Taken by me on October 11th 2006 I, the creator of this work, hereby release it into the public domain. ...

Like most students' unions in the United Kingdom, SURHUL is run entirely by the student body itself, headed by a team of elected student officers, including four paid sabbatical officers. In keeping with democratic practice, the elected officers' executive power is held in check by the legislative power of General Meetings. General Meetings take place every month during term time, however following a motion passed in March 2007, the political structure of the students' union will change to a council-run system with only one General Meeting per year. This is in response to low turn-outs at General Meetings.

With little nearby off-campus activity, there is a great emphasis placed on providing entertainment for the students. As such on-campus entertainment and social life revolves around three student-run campus bars (Medicine, The Stumble Inn and Tommy's), with a fourth (Crosslands) run by the College. The main SURHUL building has a large function hall which hosts a wide variety of entertainment events three to four nights a week (plus functions on the other nights in Tommy's and Medicine) during term time. Every three weeks the Union publishes its Communicate Card which outlines the forthcoming social events. At least one event runs each night, from a fancy dress night in the main hall, through to the weekly pub quiz in the Stumble Inn. The Union operates a strict security system and also provides a bus service which, for a small fee, ferries students back to off-campus accommodation in an effort to ensure student safety.

Towards the end of the academic year the Union organises the Summer Ball, the annual highlight of the social calendar. In recent years the RHUL Summer Ball has booked many high-profile talents, including well-known rock, pop and DJ acts such as Lemar, Jamiroquai, Brandon Block, Lisa Maffia, Rolf Harris, Steps, Republica, Wheatus and Atomic Kitten, and comedians such as Ali G. 2006 saw Rachel Stevens and the Bodyrockers headlining. The ball takes place at the end of the examination period, and is held in the quads of the Founder's Building. The ball includes fairground attractions and themed bars. Lemar (born Lemar Obika, 4 April 1978 in Tottenham, London) is a British R&B singer who has had a run of chart success in the UK since appearing on Fame Academy on BBC Television. ...

Societies include the James Bond Appreciation Society, the Comedy society (which hosts stand up evenings throughout term time), the Institute for Impure Science (IFIS) the Science Fiction and Fantasy society, the longest running society, and Anime & Manga, which won society of the year for 2004/05. The Union also maintains a number of successful sports club, catering to sports as diverse as rowing and ultimate.

Coat of arms

The Royal Holloway shield was created following the merger of Bedford and Royal Holloway Colleges in 1985. The chequer design was taken from the Bedford College coat of arms, whilst the ermine spots (feather-like symbols representing ermine tails) are from Royal Holloway. The lozenge shape in the chequered pattern is a traditional heraldic symbol for women. The three crescents are taken from Thomas Holloway's own coat of arms, as can be seen on the statue in the South quad of the college.
