Our College has now completed the purchase of Rusham Park from Procter & Gamble (P&G) in Egham.
P&G will occupy Rusham Park for the next three to five years under an arrangement where they will rent the Park’s current facilities from Royal Holloway, as Rusham Park’s new owners. After that period, our College’s plan is to secure similarly long term tenants.
Speaking about the purchase, Professor Paul Layzell, Principal said;
‘P&G’s decision to sell Rusham Park represented a unique and long term opportunity for the College to acquire property next to our historic campus. Following the approval of our estate Master Plan in 2015, our focus is on the development of our existing estate and the contribution it makes to building on Royal Holloway’s reputation as one of the UK’s leading universities.
‘We see the purchase of Rusham Park as a legacy we will leave for the future custodians of Royal Holloway. It will be the responsibility of a new generation to evolve its use and ensure that it supports the university’s ambitions for their time.’
Commenting about the sale, Cassandra Kua, Facilities & Real Estate Manager from P&G said, “We are pleased to announce the successful completion of the sale of Rusham Park to Royal Holloway, University of London. The College plays an active role in the local community in Egham, which mirrors P&G’s own commitment, and we look forward to the future as tenants”.
