Social reformer Elizabeth Jesser Reid founded Bedford College in 1849 while Royal Holloway was founded by Victorian entrepreneur and philanthropist Thomas Holloway, and opened by Queen Victoria in 1886. The colleges became part of the University of London in 1900 and after becoming co-educational in 1965 the two colleges merged in 1985 to become Royal Holloway, University of London.
The university is set on a 135 acre campus, which is located in Egham, Surrey, 40 minutes south west of central London and just 7 miles from Heathrow airport.
