Elm Grove Hall is situated in the heart of the Digby Stuart campus. It has 359 new student rooms, featuring ensuite bathrooms, a 2,000sqm conference centre with 32 conferencing bedrooms. The purpose-designed building will also host the University’s main reception area and a number of student services, ensuring the building will be the centre of student life

With demand for places at Roehampton growing, there was an increasing need for more student accommodation. Elm Grove Hall is part of a wider project to provide a greater range of student accommodation options, which has included the Chadwick Hall development, and the state-of-the-art accommodation for Roehampton students located in Vauxhall, Spring Mews.

The five-storey Elm Grove Hall building overlooks West London and boasts sweeping views of the London skyline, including Wembley Stadium, the City and Canary Wharf. It creates an excellent living environment and is also a great location to host conferences and other events. The landscape around the new building has also been improved, with new trees and public spaces for students and visitors to enjoy.

Ghazwa Alwani-Starr, Director of Estates and Campus Services said, “At Roehampton, we really value the sense of community we provide for our students and are continually investing to ensure we provide them with the best possible facilities. Elm Grove Hall provides excellent new student accommodation and great new spaces for students and staff to use”.
