About London - Royal Holloway

London but not London! The Royal Holloway campus, dominated by gothic grandeur of the Founders Building, is set in 135 acres of parkland and situated 30km from Central London. It was founded in 1879 initially as a women-only college. At our Royal Holloway summer school, students get the chance to experience life at one of the UK’s top universities.
