Advice Centre

Free | Independent | Impartial

Based on the first floor of the Students’ Union, the Advice Centre is a free and independent service for all students at Royal Holloway. We’re here to support you with a whole range of issues, big and small, and free from judgement.

While our advisors specialise in academic and housing advice, we can offer guidance on just about everything that may affect you during your university journey. If we’re not the best people to help you with a particular issue, we’ll point you in the right direction.

How can we help?

Start typing key phrases like finances, studying, assessments, or housing to see what help topics we have available. If you can't find what you're looking for, don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

Coronavirus Update

In light of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, from midday on Tuesday 17 March 2020, the Advice Centre will cease all face-to-face appointments. However, it is critical that you are still able to access our advice services and we will continue to deliver this digitally through our website, by email and via phone or Zoom appointments.

We appreciate the volume of information being sent your way could be quite overwhelming, so we've created a Coronavirus Hub to give you quick links to key advice, guidance, and our latest news updates. With dedicated pages for housing, academic, and welfare advice, as well as links to government advice and College FAQs, it's your one-stop shop for all the vital information during this time.

If you've already looked through our web pages and you can't find the information you're after, or if you'd prefer to discuss something with us, we’re here for you.

Due to COVID-19 we've changed our times for drop-in sessions and moved them online. These are now on Tuesday 13:30-15:30, Wednesday and Thursday 13:00-15:30.
