Royal Holloway College
Royal Holloway College, originally a women-only college, was founded by the Victorian entrepreneur Thomas Holloway in 1879 on the Mount Lee Estate in Egham. The founding of the college was brought about after Holloway, seeking to fulfil a philanthropic gesture, began a public debate through The Builder regarding ‘How best to spend a quarter of a million or more’, at which point his wife, Jane Holloway, proposed to build a college especially for women. Holloway later increased his original sum of money to half a million, and today, the campus is still best known for its original 600-bed building, known as the Founder’s Building, designed by William Henry Crossland and inspired by the Château de Chambord in the Loire Valley, France.
Sir Nikolaus Pevsner called the original college building “the most ebullient Victorian building in the Home Counties”, and noted that together with its sister building the Holloway Sanatorium, it represents “the summit of High Victorian design”. The Founder’s Building, which is now Grade I listed, was officially opened in 1886 by Queen Victoria, who granted the use of “Royal” in the college’s name. Founder’s has been described by The Times as “one of Britain’s most remarkable university buildings”, largely for its elaborate architecture, and according to The Sunday Times it “makes the college instantly recognisable”. The college also has a Chapel, completed in 1886 as one of the last parts of the university to be finished. October 1887 saw the arrival of the first 28 students at Royal Holloway College. It later became a constituent of the University of London in 1900, as did Bedford College, which eventually merged with Royal Holloway College.
