Roehampton offers a first-class educational experience, designed to help you reach your full potential and get the career you want. Roehampton is a parkland campus university located in southwest London within walking distance of the historic royal park of Richmond. In 1625 King Charles I brought his court to Richmond Palace to escape the plague in London and turned the area into a park for red and fallow deer. But don’t be fooled into thinking Roehampton is a country estate - London is a large city comprised of many different neighbourhoods with Westminster at the heart of the capital and it’s a short bus, tube or train ride to all of London’s landmarks. London is one of the world’s most important cities for business, finance and politics, and a gateway to Europe. It is a center of culture, history, entertainment, fashion and art. Whatever you are into, you will find it in London.

Roehampton has a proud history in higher education stretching back more than 175 years through their four colleges. Their character derives from this rich history, built on community, engagement and partnership, with a belief that no matter your background, Roehampton can help you realise your ambitions. The university has one of the most diverse student communities of any university in the UK with over 140 nationalities represented and offers high levels of contact with excellent faculty and researchers working at the cutting edge of their subject area.

Roehampton offers a personalised academic experience that will help you become the kind of graduate that employers value: a critical thinker, able to adapt to a changing world and with an ongoing passion for your subject.

Once you join Roehampton, you become part of something bigger: a welcoming community with students from across the world and from all types of backgrounds, taught by staff engaged in world-leading research. Roehampton values the shared experience of working together. You are the author of your own future, but the university can help you shape it. 


Roehampton is a lively place to get involved: you can volunteer, work, play sports or join one of the many student societies ranging from human rights groups to the Harry Potter Society. Studying at university is not just about getting a great degree, but also broadening your experiences, preparing yourself for the world of work and having a fantastic time while you are in London.

At Roehampton, your voice can shape your experience at the university. The Student Partnership offers you a say in how the university is run and has in place a number of initiatives to ensure the student voice is heard and acted upon. For instance through the Student Senate, a consultative and advisory body, students have the opportunity to discuss their priorities with key decision-makers and in 2014 implemented a campus bicycle-hire scheme.

The teaching facilities at Roehampton are designed to enhance student learning and include dedicated laboratories, a fully-equipped film editing suite and modern studios for dance and drama. The university has commenced an ambitious plan to enhance the campus, which is already the best and most beautiful in London. The master plan will modernise facilities across the university, create new student housing and further improve the landscape. The centerpiece is the creation of a state-of-the-art library - including a rooftop terrace with stunning views across London - designed by award-winning architects, which will be a visually impressive focal point that underlines the commitment to world-leading teaching and research. 

Roehampton are here to help at every stage of your university journey from application to alumni, so nothing can get in the way of your success. The university offer a range of inclusive amenities such as airport meet and greet, student counselling and an on-site medical center, and guarantees campus housing for all first-year international students who apply before the deadline. Every student has a Personal Tutor for academic advice and access to an Academic Learning Advisor to enhance your academic skills.

By embarking on this life-changing experience, you will make lifelong friends, immerse yourself in another culture and learn more about yourself than you ever thought possible.
