Description

The University of Roehampton is a modern university located in south-west London, near the affluent and picturesque Richmond.

The vast Richmond Park, with its herds of deer and extensive cycle paths, is just a short walk from the university campus. The university is well connected to central London by public transport.

The university evolved from four teacher training colleges, the first of which, Whitelands College, was established in 1841.The others are Digby Stuart, established 1874; Froebel College, established 1892; and Southlands College, founded in the 1970s but now located on a modern campus. Each College is home to thousands of students. 

In 1975 the four institutions federated to form Roehampton Institute of Higher Education, which became the University of Roehampton in 2011. The university retains its collegiate format, so students have the opportunity to bond with other students in their college as well as on their course.

The university has the only parkland campus in central London. Its library houses more than 350,000 books, along with a wide collection of e-books and access to electronic journals. The library is home to the Jewish Resource Centre Collection and the Richmal Crompton Collection of books, along with archive material accumulated during the lifetime of the author Richmal Crompton.

Former students include England rugby captain Chris Robshaw and Cirque du Freak author Darren Shan.

Roehampton University for me is the best one in London. It is an old university and has historical buildings (Harry Potter film) with lots of trees and 2 lakes. That is what makes it different because you feel like you are part of a community, a family. Also the lecturers are the most caring and supportive staff you can ever wish for!

I felt at home here the moment i walked in, but when I began my study here it turned out it was an even better uni than i thought. Fellow students, lecturers and all staff are so nice and supportive. lots of events to go to, even as an off-campus student. The location and area are surreal to have in such a busy city, can't believe how green and clean it is. lovely place.

I started my degree at Roehampton in 2018 and so far its been one of the best decisions I've made so far. It is easy to make friends and find a place where you belong as the Uni offers so many different societies and sports teams. The time you spend time doing uni work and the free time you have is really balanced, and bc of where Roehampton is based, you have easy access to London or other places to go out and spend your day. I am really happy with the services provided by the uni and the effort of the Business School. You don't just learn about the theories in business, you already start using it in real life examples.

Beautiful campus, great facilities and a really great overall feeling for the lifestyle. But I had a nightmare experience with the accommodation. I stayed at Spring Mews, where I experienced strange men being allowed to walk into my flat, and more constant intrusion. Unkept promises and very rude staff. There were maybe around 3 members of staff who were kind and understanding but the rest were awful. No aircon or heating in my room for the entire year. Anything I’d report as faulty would never get fixed, or if it did it wouldn’t be done to a basic standard. Misleading prices for the rooms. Myself and another paid the same amount as everyone else but received box size rooms whereas others got extra big rooms. Very disappointing.

Everything about Roehampton is perfect! The teaching is of a hight class with challenging topics which help to push me out of my comfort zone and explore new areas of my course. The support from staff is amazing with monthly tutor meetings, open office hours and fast email replies. The student life at Roehampton is also something that stands out with safe university run nights out with transport to and from all venues provided. I would definitely recommend this university and all its beautiful campus has to offer.

Roehampton is a gorgeous campus with amazing places where you can take a book to wind down a little or hang out with your friends or simply relax with a cup of coffee/tea in hand. The library is well stocked and if you study dance you’d be happy to know that the resources are endless. Roehampton excels in theory however there are certain practice modules within the university that do lack energy and could you with a revision and pushing of students to truly do well in the practice sector as they do in the theoretical. That said trust that as a student you will have an on campus experience that you will treasure for the rest of your life. On another note living in the off campus accommodation that this university offers, as an international student it allowed me to live in central London and made it easy to commute between the accommodation and the university itself.
