The University of Roehampton

Play

Being a student at a campus university in the heart of south-west London gives you the best of both worlds. We are lucky enough to have a 54-acre parkland campus to call home, and are only 30 minutes from central London.

We offer plenty of opportunities for you to get involved through playing sport, music, volunteering, or joining one of over 50 student societies. We also have catering outlets, across campus, and each College has social spaces where you can meet up with your friends and relax.

We have a great London location with excellent transport links. South-west London is an exciting place to be, with plenty of green spaces and parks, and loads of options for shopping, entertainment and nightlife. Our campus is close to Putney, Hammersmith and Wimbledon, which each have wide a range of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. With central London so close, you can easily access the wealth of culture, entertainment and dining options the capital has to offer.

Colleges

Our University is comprised of four historic Colleges: Digby Stuart, Froebel, Southlands and Whitelands, which were all formed in the 19th century. When you join Roehampton as a student, you will become a member of one of them.

Our Colleges help us provide the friendly, welcoming community that makes Roehampton unique in London. They provide social events, welfare support and opportunities to compete in sport and other activities – including the annual Roehampton College Cup.

 

 

Overseas study opportunities

Almost all of our students have the option of studying abroad as part of their degree. If you choose to join us, and you are on a participating programme, you will have the opportunity to study with one of our global university partners.

Our partner institutions are based across the world, and currently include universities in New York and California in the US; Melbourne and Sydney in Australia, and in cities in Canada, China, South America and continental Europe.

Studying abroad has a huge number of benefits, including helping you develop new employability skills, gaining self-confidence and independence, making new friends and discovering new cultures and new language skills.

 

 

Sports and Active Communities

We offer a wide range of sport, e-sports and physical activity opportunities for all students. Competitive sport for more experienced students to social activities for those wanting to try something new, we have something to meet the needs of all our students.
