Welcome from the Head of College

I am so pleased that you are going to join our College community. It is important to me and the rest of our College team that you feel part of the life of the College, as it will be your additional home for the time that you are living and studying at Roehampton.

The Society of the Sacred Heart founded the College in 1874 and the commitment to the education of young people shown by the Sisters is as important now as it was then. The ethos of the College is based on social justice and equality, and all Digby Stuart students can expect to be treated with dignity and kindness. Building on the lifelong commitment of the Sisters, we work towards creating a community of acceptance, love and justice where all students can find a place to flourish and learn from each other.

The College team are all here to support all your endeavours, academic and personal development. Co-curricular activity can be as rewarding as study and there are lots of opportunities to find out about new things through volunteering, sports, social life and College Cup challenges. We are also here to support you if you face any kind of difficulty or challenge. If there is anything that is troubling you we want to hear about it and help to put things right.

Our new University Library will be ready in time for September 2017 and we are excited about this wonderful new facility. You belong to a thriving, growing College that you can be proud of now and in the future.

Whether you live on or off campus there are many ways to get involved and so make sure to sign up to Facebook and Twitter to hear about what is on offer from your staff and student representatives.

We look forward to welcoming you properly when you arrive.
