Located in South West London, the University of Roehampton lies across 54 acres of parkland over two campuses, a stones throw away from the hustle and bustle of the capital.

The University has been consistently ranked as London’s best modern university for three years (Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015 and 2016, Guardian University Guide 2016, The Complete University Guide 2016 and 2017).

Post degree programmes across the various academic schools:

  • Business School
  • Dance
  • Drama, Theatre and Performance
  • Education
  • English and Creative Writing
  • Humanities
  • Life Sciences
  • Media, Culture and Languages
  • Psychology
  • Social Sciences

Across the two campuses, there are four colleges:

  • Whitelands College
  • Southlands College
  • Digby Stuart College
  • Froebel College

By 2017, the university will see a new modern library, public footpaths and over 300 extra student bedrooms at Digby Stuart College as part of a £80 million makeover. The grounds are within walking distance to Barnes railways station.

Due to a lack of recent student reviews, student opinion is not reflected on this page.
