Royal Holloway is a campus university situated to the south west of London, near Heathrow Airport, in Egham, Surrey, UK. See the campus plan here. Information about getting to Royal Holloway can be found here.
All the conference overnight accommodation is situated on campus. Delegates can choose between economy and standard accommodation.
The economy accommodation is in the Founder’s Building (no. 1 on the campus plan). This is 5 minutes from the Management Building where almost all the conference sessions and meals will be taking place (no. 12 on the campus plan). The tour of the Picture Gallery and the evening meals will take place back in the Founder’s Building.This is also where the College Bar can be found.
The standard single, double and accessible accommodation is in Gowar Hall (no. 48 on the campus plan). Gowar is a 10 minute walk from the Management Building. As the campus is hilly, we will provide transport between Gowar and the conference venues at the beginning and end of each day. Please let Hannah know if you would like to take advantage of this free service. In addition, student volunteers will be available to guide delegates to and from their accommodation.
More Accommodation Details:
Economy accommodation is in the historic Founder’s Building. Opened in 1886 by Queen Victoria, whose statue graces the centre of the North Quadrangle, Founder's has been the epicentre of campus life since the College was founded. This iconic building is in fact a huge red brick copy of a French chateau. While most of the rooms have been refurbished, they remain traditional in spirit. A number of rooms have a washbasin, while toilet, shower and bath facilities are shared on single-sex corridors. All rooms have wireless internet access.
Standard single, double and accessible accommodation is provided in Gowar Hall (no. 48 on the campus plan). Named after a former College principal, Gowar Hall was built in 2004 and is located towards the southern end of the campus, very close to the Sports Centre, gym and playing fields. There is a communal grassy area outside Gowar and the rest of the campus facilities are only a short walk away. Accommodation is based around flats with eight en-suite study bedrooms and a shared kitchen (with tea and coffee making facilities) in each flat. All en-suites have a shower, sink and toilet. All rooms have wireless internet access.
