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.
