Rusham Park student village

Update – March 2024

At Royal Holloway, we are continually working to develop our estate to provide a 21st-century campus that meets the expanding needs of everyone visiting, studying and working at the University: both today and in the future.  

In 2019, the University sought planning permission to redevelop the Rusham Park site in Egham into a student village with purpose-built student accommodation.   

Since our original application in 2019 and its approval in 2022, the external financial landscape has changed significantly. This has led the University to review the original plans and objectives for the site. This review has considered a number of aspects, including the complexity of the construction funding market and its impact on the cost of borrowing and the increased construction and development costs.   

Following this review, we have taken the decision to no longer proceed with our plans for the site’s development in its current form. We will continue to maintain and manage the site, ensuring that it remains safe and secure. Once we have reviewed future options for its potential development, and subject to securing the appropriate governance approvals, we will re-engage with the statutory planning processes, including proactive consultation as we have done throughout the site’s development and as a matter of course for all of our development proposals.
