20 Things You Learn To Hate About Being a Student at Royal Holloway

As much as there is to love about Royal Holloway, there are some things you learn to hate about being a student there.

1. Forever trying to avoid featuring in tourists’ photos of Founder’s.

Yeah, it’s pretty, and, yeah, it’s a Grade 1 listed building, but you’re kind of over it.

2. And the unnecessary length of the full university name.

3. Especially when you realise how far from the centre of London it actually is.

I mean, it’s not even in Zone 5.

The most happening place in all of Surrey.

20. Because you just love it so much.
