Royal Holloway feels very far from London, I lived an hour travel away and got sick of travelling after a while. London is fantastic when you have some money for it. Take advantage of cheap flights to other parts of the UK and Europe

The Students Union is quite good and it often has good events organized. There are few other choices though, save a few pubs in nearby Englefield Green and a couple pricey night spots in Windsor. One can always take a train into London (40 minute journey), but that is somewhat costly and the last train back is at 11:30pm... but you can always take the first morning tran back which if I recall correctly, leaves at 5:30 or you can stay with friends in London. It should also be noted that most students go home on Saturdays and Sundays which can make it somewhat dull on weekends unless you actually do go to London.

3.8/5
Housing
Type of housing: With a family
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
More independent way of living, more space. Living with other students would have been great! Living within a family needs a lot of adjustment.

Housing on campus was not offered to visiting students staying for less than one full year. Therefore I had to find accomodation on my own which was not that easy. The Accomodation Office of the University had sent a list of possible landladies/-lords. Some of them were not willing to house international students, others would only rent out a room for a period of at least one year.

Royal Holloway is close to London. There is a train station in Egham (15-20 minute walk from Campus). London offers everything you can think of. Good places closer by are Staines as well as Windsor with lots of pubs, clubs, restaurants. Staines has a cinema complex and plenty of stores as well as an indoor pool. There was a good cafÚ on campus which was cheap and had excellent coffee, sandwiches etc. there is a gym on campus which is alright and offers nice classes.

Yes: I did not have a choice of university. If I did, I would have opted for something not so far from London.

If you can afford to stay on campus and you want to pursue full-time studies, I think it will be a good experience.

It's good to try and make friends in London, and also travel to Scotland - it's a must! If you do not come from Europe, you should try and go on trips to other European countries, it's not far at all to the mainland!

Overall
I wish I had known...
A car would have been helpful, you need to walk a lot!!! I lived 15 minutes from campus which was alright. It was a 20 minute walk to the train station and a 25 minute walk to the supermarket. it wasn't fun carrying all the bags home. Besides, I was kind of stuck in the evenings. Trains are not necessarily very reliable. I had a car at home, I could have taken it...Unfortunately I did not know. Be prepared to spend a lot of money!

They have a good website with lots of pictures. We travelled to Brighton and Oxford which was fun! Going again I would try to live in Staines think because there is everything there. Close to London - great on weekends, we went there a lot. Direkt train connection to Waterloo takes 35 minutes!
