Leave a legacy
Leaving a gift in your will
The University of Roehampton has a remarkable and culturally rich heritage emanating from its beginnings in The mid-nineteenth century to its current position as one of the UK's leading modern Universities. Roehampton today has the same community spirit that was borne out of its Collegiate foundations; Digby Stuart College, Froebel College, Southlands College and Whitelands College.

Why leave a legacy?
Remembering and honouring the University of Roehampton in your will would be a significant and personal bequest in which you could support the institution that you care about and its future generations of students and academics.
By leaving a legacy you will be joining a family of benefactors whose contributions will help the University build for the future; to develop successful alumni, to create a world-class campus, to create and disseminate world-class knowledge and ideas.
Every legacy, no matter the size, is greatly valued by the University. A legacy gift will enable you to make a real difference and lasting impact in a way that matters to you most. Gifts intended to be used for general purposes will permit us to respond to new opportunities and requirements as they arise and will enable us to adapt the changing environment and needs of our students and academic staff.
If a particular relationship contributed to the direction that your life has taken since your time at Roehampton, it may be that you have a particular purpose in mind for your gift.
Here are some of the many ways in which you could make a lasting impact:
- Providing scholarships and bursaries to future generations of students;
- Supporting your Department;
- Supporting your College;
- Providing towards sport and student life.
What you can do next
