Ranked the best modern university in London,* the University of Roehampton is a new UK university that remains true to the strong historical roots and values of its four constituent colleges.

Proud to educate many students who are the first in their family to attend university, Roehampton’s commitment to enhancing access to learning can be traced back to the 19th century and the pioneering spirit of its founding colleges, Whitelands, Southlands, Digby Stuart and Froebel.

In 2004, over 160 years of combined histories were officially brought together as Roehampton was awarded university status, a recognition that marked an exciting new chapter in a journey that had begun in 1841 when Whitelands College opened its doors to become one of the first institutions in the UK to start educating women.

Over the past decade the University has grown in both strength and reputation, and is now recognised as a world-class centre for academic research with some of the most highly regarded academic departments in the UK.
