University of Roehampton

The University of Roehampton is a friendly, lively community. The beautiful and historic campus is situated in one of the most attractive suburbs of London - and the university's "Growhampton" sustainability program works to make being green easy and fun! The locale provides a stimulating environment where you can pursue your studies. To maximize your experience, you'll receive support from on-site staff throughout your time abroad. Roehampton is dedicated to providing the best academic, cultural, and social opportunities imaginable. Renowned for its Performing Arts and Biological Anthropology departments, the University of Roehampton offers a wide range of classes for students in the liberal arts. Roehampton's four colleges (did someone say Harry Potter?) and its central student union offer a strong sense of community. Since most students (and all study abroad students) live on campus, you'll quickly feel at home, make friends, and start enjoying the many campus activities. With students from over 80 countries, Roehampton offers exceptional support to its international students. Advisors can guide you on everything from course registration to fun excursions. Founded as a University in 1975, but with historic, academic roots going back to 1841, Roehampton has an incredible reputation. It has been ranked as the best modern university in London according to three sources: the Complete University Guide, the Sunday Times Good University Guide, and the Guardian University Guide. Roehampton is a research-intensive, modern university on a beautiful and historical campus in London.

Life in London

Life in London A hotspot for art, fashion, film, history, music, theater, and nightlife, London is an experience in itself. Explore the many diverse markets across the city, including the punk-rock-inspired Camden market and colorful Portobello Road. Visit the Globe Theatre to see some of Shakespeare’s most famous works performed live. Many of London’s museums are free and house some of the most renowned works of art and artifacts. Cruise down the River Thames or find a rooftop with a sweeping view of the spectacular city below. As the saying goes, coined by famous author Samuel Johnson, “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.” The London Underground makes navigating this big city easy. Also called "the Tube," it's the oldest underground railway in the world. Combined with London’s train and bus systems, the entire city is well connected and accessible. Walking is also a great way to see the sights. You'll glimpse contrasts between beautiful Victorian architecture situated next to some of the most modern buildings in the world. Stroll to one of the nearby well-preserved parks to enjoy green surroundings in the midst of a bustling city. Feel like taking a weekend trip to the Beatles’ hometown of Liverpool? Or checking out a Manchester United football match? Or taking a quick jaunt to a traditional seaside town? Thanks to England’s rail system, the whole country is easily accessible by train. And if you want to travel farther afield, London's international rail and air links make European excursions both easy and affordable! Live the Local Life West End Show London's theater scene is second to none. Catch a musical or a play with your onsite staff! Victoria & Albert Museum This incredible museum houses over 4.5 million objects and spans over 5,000 years of art. No wonder it's one of the world's largest museums! Afternoon Tea Indulge in this fancy British tradition first introduced in 1840. Portobello Road Market Walking Tour Let your on-site staff take you on a tour of one of London's most famous neighborhoods and markets! (It's also where the movie Notting Hill was filmed.) Evensong at Westminster Abbey Hear the angelic voices of the Westminster Abbey choir during the traditional afternoon service that takes place every day in this famous UNESCO World Heritage site.

Housing

You’ll live in a single room in one of the residence halls on campus. Wifi is available in common spaces, but you may want to bring an ethernet cable for a stronger internet connection in your private bedroom. Living in the residence halls provides you with the opportunity to meet students from different cultures and backgrounds. There are also cafeterias, shops, and coffee and snack bars located on campus, as well as student union facilities, where you can relax and spend time with your new friends! Watch Oscar’s video tour of his accommodation to get an idea of what your housing could be like. Meals The hall is self-catered, with a communal kitchen for student use in each corridor. Each kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, oven, stovetop, microwave, kettle and toaster. A kitchen pack will be provided, which includes plates, a bowl, utensils, cutlery, pans, corkscrew, and can opener. You can buy groceries in the village, which is a short ten-minute walk from the main campus, or at ASDA (a large supermarket), only a short bus trip from the campus.
