Accommodation

As a study abroad student, you are guaranteed housing in one of our on-campus halls of residence.

All rooms at Roehampton are single occupancy and are arranged in either apartment style or along a corridor. You will share a kitchen/social area and we will provide you with all the cooking equipment you will need. Some rooms have private full bathrooms, some have private showers and others have shared facilities. You can let us know your preference and we will do our best to find you a room that meets your requirements and budget. 

We like to mix our Study Abroad students in with the rest of our campus community, so you will likely be living with people from all walks of life. There are no halls or apartments just for international students!

Whilst for some students there is an additional cost to participate, if you are paying your home institution for your Study Abroad experience you should ask if this is included in the programme fee. 

Students are expected to have a minimum of 2.8 GPA on a 4.0 scale or equivalent.
