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.

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 café on campus which was cheap and had excellent coffee, sandwiches etc. there is a gym on campus which is alright and offers nice classes.

As I lived in London there is an endless list of things to do on any night. Weekend nightlife at the university is dead, in the week it is ok.

Royal Holloway is on a hill overlooking a small village in Surrey. There isn't much to do outside campus, so you have to travel to London, which can be a bit expensive and most of all, inconvenient, because, as has been noted by other people, the last train from London leaves much too early, at around 23.30
