Meeting and event spaces that inspire
Royal Holloway offers a plethora of flexible, state-of-the-art meeting rooms, many of which include exhibition, breakout and networking spaces alongside the main meeting room. All rooms are equipped with audio-visual facilities and free wi-fi and a dedicated events team is on hand to provide support throughout every event.
Our historic Picture Gallery boasts one of the finest private collections of Victorian art the country has to offer and is a popular choice for banquets of up to 120 people, while the original College Dining Hall is a perfect venue for a larger banquet, reception or party. With space for up to 200 seated guests, the vast, beautiful blue high ceilings with their ornate white fixtures and subtle décor provide the perfect backdrop on which to create a unique sense of occasion.
Catering: The venue offers a range of delicious food and drink options to suit every occasion from working breakfasts to three course gala dinners. Prepared in-house by our award winning team of chefs, the menus boast a diverse range of dishes to cater for all tastes and dietary requirements, featuring the very best in seasonal produce. A further five bars, cafés and restaurants across the campus, can provide an interesting alternative to event hospitality.

Sports facilities: The venue can cater for a variety of sporting activities, with a multi-use sports hall as well as floodlit outdoor pitches and courts which provide all-weather playing surfaces for a wide range of sports. The venue is located in 135 acres of parkland, providing an ideal outside space for team building activities.
The liaison we experienced from Royal Holloway in advance of and during the event was highly attentive, efficient and professional. Overall, the best University Conference Liaison I have worked with in 2 years of conferencing in Universities across the UK.
