How to get here and guidance for visitors

The University of Roehampton campus benefits from being at the heart of a busy network of transport links. Whether using 24-hour buses, the tube network at Hammersmith, Shepherd’s Bush and Putney, or through rail services from Barnes to Waterloo, all points across Central and West London are within easy reach of the university.

Approximately 21 buses an hour stop outside the main entrance of the University.

See our Campus map.

Travelling to the Main Site Campus

Buses 265, 419, 493 and the double-decker Roehampton shuttle bus (849) all stop outside the University's main entrance; Froebel College (Queen Mary's Hospital bus stop) and a short walk from the entrance to Whitelands College (Roehampton Lane, Danebury Avenue bus stop).

Travelling to the Whitelands Site Campus

As well as the 265, 419 and 493, Buses 85, 170 and 430 also stop near the entrance to Whitelands College. Whitelands is located just off Holybourne Avenue.

Roehampton shuttle bus (In term-time)

The free double-decker Roehampton shuttle bus runs in term-time between Whitelands, our main campus, Barnes Station and then direct to Wimbledon station.

Night buses: The 85 is a 24-hour service, and the N72 runs along Roehampton Lane to Acton via Hammersmith, whilst the N74 runs along Roehampton Lane to the Westend and Baker Street, allowing students to take full advantage of the 24-hour city.

You can track live bus arrivals on the TfL website. There is currently no service to track the Roehampton shuttle bus.

The nearest station is Barnes - 8 trains per hour go to Putney, Clapham Junction, Vauxhall and London Waterloo. Check for live departures/arrivals at the national rail site.

Barnes station is 15 minutes’ walk from the University's main entrance, or you can take the Roehampton Shuttle bus 849, or the 265 which stop outside all campuses. Approximately 15 buses per hour run between the station and the University.

We are a short bus ride away from tube connections at Hammersmith (Circle/Hammersmith & City/District/Piccadilly lines), Shepherd's Bush (Central) and Putney Bridge (District).

If coming from the direction of Hammersmith/Shepherd's Bush take bus 33 (from the south side of Hammersmith Bridge) to Barnes Station and change to bus 265. If coming from Putney Bridge take bus 265 to all campuses.

Alternatively you can create your own route and timetable by commuting to Roehampton by bike. Follow this link to find one of the more than 600 cycle spaces dotted around campus.
