College Life at Southlands College
Members of Southlands, whether they live on site or off-campus, can get involved in a huge range of activities. At Southlands we have all sorts of activities just for you - from small film nights in The Reef to college celebration dinners. We would love to hear from anyone wanting to get involved in running and participating in college campaigns, events and activities. Make sure you get in touch with Tazim Fatima, College Engagement and Activities Officer if you would like to get involved.
Hoodies and other merchandise are a great way of showing college pride, and ideal as gifts for family and friends to share your Southlands experience with them. You can purchase Southlands College merchandise on our online store by clicking here.
Each college has a mascot and colours that encourage a sense of belonging. Our college colours are blue and gold, and our sports mascot is the Shark.

Sport at Southlands
There are lots of opportunities for taking part in sports at Roehampton and specifically at Southlands College. Southlands has pockets of spaces that we offer for social sport. This has included frisbee in the Quad, video games in the Reef, pop-up badminton in Chapman Hall, and table-tennis tournaments in The Reef.
You’ll find some sports and games equipment in The Reef, which you are welcome to use. On sunny days, find a member of the college team and they can help you set up equipment on Southlands Quad.
