Catering outlet closures

With the exception of The Hub, all of our catering outlets on campus are now closed until further notice. The Hub is open daily from 11am-7pm, serving a selection of breakfast baps, sandwiches, salad, soup and hot dinner service. Please note that The Hub is cashless. Customers can pay for goods with their College card or credit card, but cash is not accepted.

There are several different bars, restaurants and coffee shops to choose from, each with its own style and character. Whether you prefer to grab a coffee and work on your laptop, or somewhere comfy to enjoy a home-cooked meal with a large group of friends, there is a great choice. Take a look at Your Campus Food and Drink Guide to see details of what each venue has to offer as well as the term-time opening hours of each.

We now have 450ml Royal Holloway branded, BPA free, stainless steel drinks bottles available to purchase in every catering outlet across campus. Free tap water refills are available all over campus too, so save money, stay hydrated and reduce plastic pollution!
