Roehampton is a diverse community, made up of people from all faiths and none, coming together to share our journeys through living, studying and working together. We celebrate the diversity of our University by serving the religious and spiritual needs of our staff and students and by promoting dialogue and peaceful co-existence to all members of the community and beyond
To reflect this we offer a multi-faith chaplaincy with chaplains, associate chaplains, chaplaincy community workers and faith supporters from a number of faith traditions. All chaplains offer support in a friendly and welcoming space, away from work and studying.
Current students can access various kinds of support via the Student Portal. This is also the main point of access for news, events, links to support services and key contacts. Checking the Portal on a regular basis will help you keep up-to-date with all aspects of university life when you're off-campus.
From 2019/20, we are introducing new provision including lockers, so that you can keep your belongings safe while on-campus without having to carry them with you, and fridges and microwaves, so that you can store and reheat food you bring from home. These will be located at various convenient places around campus, so that they're easily accessible wherever you happen to be.
All students have access to support such as security and wardens out of hours when on campus. If you need support when off-campus, we will direct you to services such as the police or ambulance services, or charities such as the Samaritans.
