Poor excuse for a uni. Halls that are upwards of £150 a week yet have a plethora of maintenance issues and pest infestations as well as terrible WiFi that doesn’t work. Maintenance have still yet to fix the problems I reported when I moved in and they probably never will. Security fail to make the campus safe as calls don’t get taken seriously and problems don’t get resolved on a regular basis. They ignore behaviours they are banned on campus and make you feel like an idiot for calling them. People that aren’t students come onto campus at night by following students back home through the estate. Overall, if I had known that these things were going to be problems I would’ve attended a different uni.
I’m a very satisfied, second-year Business Student at University of Roehampton. I really like the location of the university and the level of education is high. When it comes to social life at the university, there is a lot of societies and various activities during the academic year that enable students to connect and relax.
A great campus with good lecture rooms, plenty of cafes, and the union bar. Good lecturers on my course. There's a lot of societies to join, sports memberships especially are great deals for a commonwealth membership £65 you can take most classes as much as you like for the year.
Great university... everyone (staff and students) are so welcoming and eager to help. Amazing new library with all the resources you could ask for. Great nightlife with access to both uni run club nights and normal club events.
I'm currently a second year at the university of Roehampton, I enjoy this uni very much for the diverse events that are planned, the college spirit and the nice green campus. The people are friendly, and welcoming. The uni overall feels like a big family, I highly recommend it.
Located in a very quiet Part of London not the London experience I expected. Many people are either far internationals or form London and surrounding areas and stick with their own making harder if you don't fall into these catabolise to fit in
Vibrant atmosphere at nights out and other student events. Lecturers have been helpful and mostly very friendly throughout my three years. Beautiful campus, a real green retreat in the middle of London. Perfect if you want the campus lifestyle. A new library has recently been built and it is a lovely building to read and work in. On campus accommodation wasn't the best in elm as it was loud and lots of fire alarms. Generally though, a great place to study.
Academically, it's improving but not intellectually stimulating; getting a degree here is easy. Student life is okay, essential facilities can be found on campus and everything in regards to what London has to offer is in moderate distance.
Roehampton is blessed with a beautiful campus where both your student halls and lectures can be in the same building! Yet, this only serves the pretentious 'bubble' that Roehampton finds itself in with so little connectiom to London, that it's really really hard to consider it London. If you're looking for the city life and a diverse culture, then I'm afraid Roehampton isn't for you. The lack of culture is very basic, just like it's student union. However, if a community is what you're after then Roehampton can certainly please you. Even if the students are a bit of a mixed bag. Also, I love my course. I'm just mentioning the social atmosphere as it's a big part!
The University has a great sense of community being on a small campus with lots of green areas, however it is severely lacking in facilities, some accomidation is over 20years old and falling apart. Overall I am enjoying my course. Social events could be more diverse as the university clubs can be very expensive, £5 for entry and £3 for cloakroom and £7 for drinks on a student night out ! Ridiculous. Good community sense. Bad support services, very generic, no sports facilities. More societies that are organised.
Doing a combined degree and have had a problem with every department. Lecture halls with no tables and not enough chairs! Lectures who don’t show up and say they don’t want to teach! I didn’t have a desk chair or WiFi in my room for 8 weeks! Would avoid unless you want the stress. They let anyone in and that really shows!
After encountering a difficult first year at another university, I transferred to Roehampton and it was easily the best decision I could have ever made. The lectures and seminars were extremely insightful and the lecturers were incredibly professional, kind and approachable. During my final year of my undergraduate, my friends and I founded a society and the Student’s Union were extremely supportive of our society event ideas; we were even awarded “Best Academic Society” at the RSU Awards in June 2018. I enjoyed my undergraduate experience at Roehampton so much that I decided to stay on for further study; I am now half way through my Master of Science - in a completely new field, thanks to Roehampton for helping me land an internship in the summer of 2017 which helped me discover a newfound passion - and, again, staying on this beautiful London campus was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not to mention, the new library is incredible!
Great, friendly uni, always something to do. Most dorms only offer ethernet cables, so wifi gets a low rating. Facilities in general are great- but the accommodation is a complete Russian roulette gamble, and believe me I got the full chamber.
Although we are living in a democratic society where freedom of speak is basic human rights, some of you went out of your way to express your very negative perceptions of this University. Come on people. I have had some serious challenges during my studies that kept me from completing the programme, and the staff has been very helpful supporting throughout those challenging times. There are more positives than negatives about the staff members of the university or the organisation as a whole.
Pro: Lecturers and departments are fantastic! Nice facilities and a green campus. Cons: The university administration is abhorrent!!! They are extremely disorganised - enrollment is always late, payment of loans/bursary is late, response time can be up to a week (if ever!), and class registration on moodle isn't available until past the first week of class. International students should be weary of courses longer than a year as year-to-year tuition increases can go up drastically! While they state to expect a 3-5% increase, my last year went up 10% with no explanation.
The Roehampton online degrees almost seems like a scam. Worst University, staff and faculty. Technology is faulty and feedback is ridiculously late and your work is likely not even graded by the profs. Save your money and go elsewhere.
Roehampton is the biggest mistake of my life. I thought I was going to a learning environment who took me as an individual student serisouly. Feedback on assignments have consisted of a sentence full of spelling mistakes. Tutors have often been more interested in chit chatting than actually teaching. Admin and support has been the most horrible I've ever experienced. When I graduated this spring, I could not even get a transcript with my grades on before June without paying a fee and waiting 3 weeks. Way to help me on my way to applying for master programs! Honestly I never write reviews, but I am just so angry for all the s*** I've had to endure at this university. Some aspects are really really good, but overal; would NOT recommend it to anyone who are serious about their studies.
Student union and careers service were friendly,overall great. The internet for mobiles... well it cuts out a lot walking around the campus. Society wise there is very few now that I'm comparing to other unis. There is a student union cafe is good. Dont let the wonderfully greenery images fool you on their website though... during 11/12 months of the year it looks pretty grim.
My first year at Roehampton was amazing. The lectures were very interesting and the lecturers helped us to engage in our learning. Obviously, living in London was amazing too. Roehampton is close to all the main London destinations and is a 15 minute bus ride away from Westfield!
Lovely campus, very green. Lots of building work being done at the moment (Jan 2015). Lecturers are very enthusiastic and very easy to talk to. If in any doubt, I feel comfortable talking to them.
Expensive to live as it's in London. Accommodation is poor, with very bad WiFi.
