The University of Roehampton, formerly Roehampton Institute of Higher Education, is a public university in the United Kingdom, situated on three major sites in Roehampton, in the London Borough of Wandsworth.

At Roehampton, you will have the chance to get involved, find new interests and develop your abilities beyond your subject of study. You can play sport and music, join one of our many student societies and enjoy the cafés and bars we have on our beautiful parkland campus.

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.

We have plenty of opportunities for you to play sport, including football, badminton, yoga, cheerleading and rowing. We also have an active musical scene, and whether you want to play jazz, classical music or get involved in musical theatre.
