Life in London

South West London offers something for everyone, from world class sport, music and theatre, to shopping, food and open spaces. Roehampton is perfectly situated to get the most of everything.

Explore London

Shopping

When you need a little retail therapy, Roehampton is well placed to shop: Kingston is a short bus ride away, Westfield London in Shepherd’s Bush is within easy reach, and If you’d rather rummage through charity shop rails, don’t miss Wimbledon, Putney and Chiswick.

Night Life

Just down the road, Putney boasts a range of bars including Revs, The Toy Shop, Be at One and Tequila Mockingbird and they often have happy hours if you want a mock/cocktail fix. The RSU organise trips around South West London so you don’t have to worry about getting home afterwards.

Food and drink

There are so many places to go for food locally, from street food to upmarket bars and restaurants. You can head to Tooting Market for a huge variety of street food, Richmond  for a cool drink by the river or jump on a bus to Putney, Fulham and Chelsea for even more options!

Green spaces

Roehampton is London’s only green campus university and is surrounded by beautiful parks and gardens. Richmond Park, with its herds of deer, iconic Isabella plantation and epic cycling routes is a 5 minute walk from campus and free to enter.

54-Acre parkland campus

Located in the heart of south-west London, close to Putney and Hammersmith and within easy reach of central London. Studying at Roehampton will give you the best of both worlds: the community feel of a traditional university campus, with the culture and nightlife of one of the greatest cities in the world.

Campus - Key Information
  • Acres of green space: From the Roehampton Mile lap around campus, to catch-ups on the lawn by the lake, there’s plenty of space to stretch out in between your lectures. Or why not volunteer to look after the campus rabbits and chickens, or grow crops with Growhampton?
  • There are cafés, bars and social spaces across our campus, including the Hive Café, which is run by our students and serves produce they make, through our thriving Growhampton initiative. Our Students' Union has live music, karaoke and regular Friday night club night, The Bop.
  • Our award-winning library houses 1,200 study spaces and hundreds of thousands of books and research materials across nearly 8,000 metres of shelving and five floors.
  • Whatever course you study, at Roehampton you’ll be working in state-of-the-art facilities. This includes our brand new media centre with film studios, editing suites and MAC computer rooms, specialist laboratories for Life Sciences and Psychology students, a practice law court and our dance and drama performance spaces.

I have a lot of international friends here at BUIC, and I’ve learnt so much from them. There is always a lot to do together both on and off-campus.

Sagar Nepal, Bangor University International College (BUIC)

I would recommend UGIC because it is based on the main University of Greenwich campus, a cosmopolitan university. At UGIC, there are students from all around the world, and I've made a lot of friends from exciting places."

Gozel Turkmenistan, University of Greenwich International College (UGIC)

I think one of the main reasons the IIM (pre-masters) has been so helpful is because the staff are so supportive and are always able to help me. Whether it is understanding a module or finding out how to sort accommodation, they will help you with everything. I’ve enjoyed studying at Bangor, the people are friendly, and the environment is also really peaceful and safe. It’s given me the best opportunity to succeed in my studies here in the UK.
