I work in Egham and it is a nice, friendly place close to various motorways and w/ direct trains into London. Royal Holloway, Univeristy of London is nearby and you will see the odd student or two in Egham town centre, but I wouldn't say it's a 'studenty' place as you'll see more local residents than anyone else. There are a few shops for the basics and a few restaurants and pubs. There is a church in the center which has bell ringing which you will hear on I believe Thursday evenings. There are several car parks which are either free or very inexpensive (?.50/1 hour) compared to nearby Windsor. Egham is a nice place and I (female) feel safe walking through there in the evening.
Culturally there are 2 sides to Egham - the University and its students or the rest of the population.
There is no obvious student residential area.
Egham is basically a suburban family area. Countryside (and Windsor Great Park) is close by if the outdoors is your thing. The connections are good for getting about by road or rail.
All local amenities and right next to Winsdor Great Park for walks and cycling.
This is a very nice area. It is close to Royal Holloway University. It is very quiet and friendly. There are a few shops and pubs and a few restaurants on the High Street. I am a female and I feel safe walking there on my own at night.
