Specific Requirements

Quiet flats

We can offer you the option to live with other students who have an interest in quieter accommodation. Students living in these areas would be expected to adopt a particularly moderated lifestyle within their accommodation in respect of alcohol, parties and noise. If you wish to apply for this type of accommodation please add 'Quiet Flat' to the text box when you complete an application for accommodation. We will endeavour to allocate you with other students who request this type of accommodation but we are unable to guarantee this.

Postgraduate students

There are a limited number of 51 week contract rooms available for postgraduate students. Preference is given to first-year postgraduate students. Postgraduate halls are also offered to undergraduate students who have returned to study after a break.

Mature students

If you're a mature student and want to be in a flat with mature students, please let us know via the free text box when you apply for accommodation, so we can do our best to house you with other mature students.

Study Abroad students

Study abroad students are eligible to apply for accommodation. This includes continuing UK students going abroad for a semester in their continuing years. Get in touch to find out more.

Students with disabilities

We have 30 rooms with adapted facilities for students with disabilities and long-term medical conditions. Wherever possible the University will adapt facilities to suit individual requirements.

Disability-related needs for ensuite accommodation

The University recognises that some students may have specific disability-related requirements for ensuite accommodation. If you require an ensuite bathroom on the basis of a disability you may be eligible for a fixed reduction in your rent* for the 2019/20 academic year.

Reductions in rent can only be applied upon receipt of the following three documents, and with approval of the Disability Service:

  1. Accommodation self-assessment form
  2. Medical evidence, outlining the disability-related need for an ensuite bathroom
  3. Disability disclosure form

Please send the above documents directly to disabilities@roehampton.ac.uk

*Notes

  • The rent reduction applicable for the 2019/20 academic year will be £729 for a 38 week undergraduate contract. This is the difference in cost between a standard room and the cheapest ensuite room.
  • As with all accommodation requests, the availability of ensuite rooms cannot be guaranteed and will be subject to availability.
