If you're currently living in halls and considering your housing options for next year, our Advice Centre give you some things to think about as they compare the advantages of halls versus private housing.
Unfortunately, like most unis, Royal Holloway can only guarantee you an offer of a place in halls for your first year. This leaves a limited stock of rooms available to continuing students.
Applications for Halls for continuing students will open in Term Two and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you’re unsure about whether or not to apply for halls as a continuing student, below are some factors to consider:
Advantages of halls
Advantages of private housing
Much smaller deposit
No rent up-front
Usually more space
Closer to uni facilities and services
Option of garden and parking
Better customer service
You’re spoilt for choice
Rooms available throughout the academic year
If you’re worried about finding housemates or a group with a spare room, fret not. There are always people looking for someone in our HouseMating Facebook group!
