Get your wristband


With more than 35 events over the first week of term, Freshers’ Festival is your introduction to the Students’ Union and everything we have to offer. There’s a ton of free events, taster sessions and of course, the obligatory programme of cracking nights out.

It’s much more than events though. We like to think of it as a warm welcome to the Royal Holloway family where you realise what makes this place so special - the people, the community, the spirit.
