Arrivals Day

University of Roehampton will have student ambassadors waiting at Heathrow Airport (LHR) ready to bring you to campus on their designated arrivals day. Once you arrive you will meet the friendly Roehampton Abroad Team who will register you, give you your handbook and further details about your first few days at Roehampton. The accommodation team will then give you your keys and student ambassadors will be on hand to take you to your new home!


Orientation is designed especially for study abroad students and will provide you with important information about the University and living in London. You will hear about student life, safety and well-being and academic life to prepare you for your time at Roehampton. You will also register as fully-fledged Roehampton students and will finalize your modules (courses). Finally, the Photo Frenzy scavenger hunt will introduce you to London. Starting at Roehampton and working in groups you will make your way through the clues – solving them to find your next photo destination in central London.
