We are committed to ensuring that all of our students, regardless of their background, fulfil their potential. They become the kind of graduates that employers value: confident, critical thinkers who are adaptable, able to work well with people from all walks of life and who have an ongoing passion for learning.
Situated on a beautiful parkland campus in the heart of southwest London, the University of Roehampton has a proud history stretching back 175 years through our four colleges. Our history informs our ethos, built on community and partnership.
We have a diverse and cosmopolitan community of 10,000 students from 141 countries. Over half of our students are the first in their family to attend university.
Our Student Partnership offers our students a say in how their University is run. We provide a wide range of ways to get involved, through volunteering, playing sport or music, or joining one of our many active student societies.
We are focused on creating new knowledge and ideas that help us to understand our world and make it a better place. Two-thirds of our research is officially recognised as internationally excellent. We have research-active staff engaged in teaching across all of our academic departments, which means our students benefit from being taught by leading thinkers from their first year of study.
Roehampton has an international reputation for the quality of our teaching and research. We have been ranked as the best modern university in London by three major university guides over the past three years (by The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015 and 2016; The Guardian University Guide 2016; The Complete University Guide 2016 and 2017).
University of Roehampton is a collegiate university, where a group of historic colleges have been brought together to create a beautiful 60-acre parkland campus, with classic listed buildings alongside modern, cutting-edge facilities. Our campus helps us provide a close-knit community feel for our students, who each belong to one of the four colleges. By being part of a college, whether you live on campus or not, you’ll experience a real sense of community and benefit from the support available. See more about our campus and colleges.
