Royal Holloway Moves – an app for all students and staff that rewards you for being active. Earn points for a range of activities which you can redeem for a variety of rewards on campus.

What is Royal Holloway Moves?

Royal Holloway Moves is an app which rewards students and staff for being active. By connecting your activity tracker, Royal Holloway Moves will convert your running, walking, swimming and cycling into points which you can then spend on rewards listed within the app.

Why should I sign up?

Physical activity is proven to provide a range of physical and mental health benefits. Whether it’s a walk around campus, a cycle into town or a run around Virginia Water lake, all activity is extremely beneficial to our overall wellbeing. The app is available to remind you that all physical activity #DoesYouGood and offers a range of rewards to encourage the integration of activity into your daily lives.

How do I sign up to Royal Holloway Moves?

To sign up, simply download the Moves+ app from Google Play or the App Store and select ‘Royal Holloway Moves’. You will then be asked to input your email address (firstname.secondname@royalholloway.ac.uk) and unique ID (your payroll number)

What rewards are available and how do I redeem them?

The types of rewards that are on offer will vary over time, however there will always be something to redeem! Hot drinks and snacks from catering outlets around campus are likely to remain throughout, however don’t spend all your points too soon without keeping an eye out for our higher value rewards. To redeem a reward, you will simply need to show the merchant your app when prompted to do so, before clicking through to finalise the reward redemption. Note that if you redeem too soon or an item is out of stock, this action cannot be undone and the points will be lost. If a reward is a discount code, the code revealed once you click redeem will just need to be noted so that you can use it during the transaction.

How do I get points?

You can collect points by connecting your activity tracker to the Royal Holloway Moves app and doing the following activities:

  • Running
  • Walking
  • Cycling
  • Swimming

For extra points, don’t forget to keep an eye out for any challenges or events that you may want to take part in. You can only take part in one challenge per activity at any one time however as soon as you have completed one, you are able to challenge yourself with another!
