Travelling by car as a student

Parking on campus

You must have a parking permit to park on campus. If you don't have a parking permit, our Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras will know, and you might get a Penalty Charge Notice.

We have different permits available dependent upon where you live.

• If you live more than 1.5 miles away from campus, you will be eligible to apply for a Student Parking Permit which covers days, evenings and weekends.

• If you live within the 1.5 miles radius you can apply for a Student Out of Hours Parking Permit which means you can park from 6pm till 4am (you can only use car parks 4 and 14)

• If you live in Halls, you will not be eligible to apply for any student parking permits. The exception is if you live in Kingswood, you can apply for parking permission from Kingswood reception which allows you to park at Kingswood only.

Motorbikes and scooters must be registered via the Parking Permit Portal but are not required to display a permit. They must be parked correctly in a designated motorcycle parking area, or if spaces are unavailable in general then park in car parking bays in the appropriate car parks.

Visitors to Halls

If you have family or friends coming to visit you in Halls, please speak to your Halls Reception about where they can park.

Taxi

The vast majority of taxis are safe, but you may want to take a few precautions, especially if you're travelling alone. For example, have your money ready before you reach your destination, get out of the cab and then pay the driver. When booking a cab you can also ask what sort of car will be collecting you. For journeys out of Egham, it is advisable to agree a price with the cab firm before you depart and share your journey with a friend if possible. 

Normal rates from Royal Holloway to Egham should be £5-6, and Royal Holloway to Heathrow should be £18-22 depending on which terminal you require.
