Royal Holloway, University of London

Royal Holloway, University of London, formally incorporated as Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, is a public research university and a constituent college of the federal University of London.


Royal Holloway College, originally a women-only college, was founded by the Victorian entrepreneur Thomas Holloway in 1879 on the Mount Lee Estate in Egham. The founding of the college was brought about after Holloway,seeking to fulfill a philanthropic gesture, began a public debate through The Builder regarding ‘How best to spend a quarter of a million or more’, at which point his wife proposed to build a college especially for women. Holloway later increased his original sum of money to half a million, and today, the campus is still best known for its original 600-bed building, known as the Founder’s Building, designed by William Henry Crossland and inspired by the Ch√Ęteau de Chambord in the Loire Valley, France.
