Living in University halls
University halls is where friendships are made. You will be able to choose from a range of halls accommodation on and off-campus.
In both, you will benefit from the support of our residential staff who are here to look after you. You can also choose between catered or self-catered accommodation:
- Catered halls: Enjoy freshly-prepared meals from the dining hall, snacks and drinks from the fridge and microwave in every hall.
- Self-catered halls: Cook for yourself and share a kitchen with other students while making friends.

How to book your room
Once it is confirmed that you can return to on-campus learning, and if you have requested accommodation, the Central Student Support team will contact you with the latest information on available options and fees.
Our Accommodation Commitment
To provide assurance of accommodation availability, we have introduced an Accommodation Commitment. So students can be sure of getting a room offer.
The Accommodation Commitment applies to courses starting in September and October 2023 only. Rooms are generally allocated on a first come first served basis however specific groups may be prioritised where appropriate, such as students with specific medical conditions or those aged under 18. Students under 18 years of age may be limited to specific accommodation types.
Arranging your own accommodation privately
If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying and that you are staying less than 60 minutes away from Royal Holloway International Study Centre.
Look out for fraud
Scammers may specifically target international students so it is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity when dealing with a private accommodation provider so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.
