The spacious 135 acre campus provides an impressive range of modern academic and social facilities in a parkland setting in Surrey, close to London and the UK's major communications network. Though part of the University of London, and certainly within easy reach of the capital, Royal Holloway is actually based in Egham, Surrey, giving a sense of space and calm that students at other London institutions might sometimes kill for. The campus is set in 135 acres of parkland, within walking distance of Windsor Great Park. It is dominated by the simply incredible Founder's building, a Victorian copy of the Chateau de Chambord in the Loire Valley, which really has to be seen to be believed.
