Student Life

Roehampton's green campus is located in the heart of southwest 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.
Roehampton offers students several ways to get involved both on campus an in the community. The campus boasts several clubs and organizations, opportunities to get involved with athletics, esports, and on-campus conferences and events. The Hive café is a student-run piece of the "Growhampton" initiative, and sells sustainably sourced food and beverages, some of which are sourced locally on campus! Soil in the City offers students the opportunity to provide food education for schoolchildren, and there are several other Growhampton projects and additional campus activities where students can get involved.
