Welcome to Royal Holloway
Royal Holloway, University of London was founded by Thomas Holloway, a self-made multi-millionaire, who made his fortune in patent medicines. It first opened as a Girls’ College in 1886 and was later established as a university in 1900, only accepting male students in 1965.
Built around two quadrangles, the iconic Founder’s Building continues to impress as much by its size as by the exuberance of the roofline with its many turrets and towers. As solid as it is extravagant, it epitomises the wealth, optimism and spirit of philanthropy so characteristic of the Victorian age.
