Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL) originated out of the merger of two pioneering colleges that offered higher education to women. Royal Holloway College and Bedford College, founded by Victorian philanthropist Thomas Holloway and social reformer Elizabeth Jesser Reid, became part of the University of London in 1900 and were the first institutions in the UK to award degrees to women. The university, which is home to more than 9,000 students, is situated in 135 acres of parkland in Egham, Surrey, less than 20 miles from central London.
Its campus is considered one of the most beautiful in the world and is based on the design of the Château Chambord, one of the largest and most distinctive châteaux in the Loire Valley.
