Royal Holloway, University of London serves as the impressive exterior location for the university Goldberg lectures in. Although it's not actually in central London, sorry to disappoint. The uni can actually be found in Egham, Surrey and is a 40-minute train journey from the captial. Students had caught sightings of Badgley filming in spring 2022, and posted sneak peaks onto TikTok at the time. (Some might say the stalker became the stalked on social media!) The Founders Building, at the heart of the uni, is the exact backdrop in the Netflix show and was opened by Queen Victoria in 1886. It includes two quads, one of which houses a statue of the monarch. While the location is used as the fictional Darcy College in "You", the grounds have been used in "Downton Abbey", "Avengers: Age of Ultron", and "The Split".
