There are a number of regular services held throughout the week in the chapel of Royal Holloway, led by the Choir of Royal Holloway. The Chapel is non-denominational and there are a variety of services and events held including Choral Evensong from the 1662 prayerbook, Compline and Catholic masses, with music usually playing a central role. Royal Holloway is also the only university that still maintains a tradition of sung morning services.
