Institution

The University of Roehampton, formerly Roehampton Institute of Higher Education, is a public university in the United Kingdom, situated on three major sites in Roehampton, south-west London. In December 2014, according to Higher Education Funding Council for England, the university was considered to be the most research-intensive modern university in the United Kingdom.

Location

Roehampton is a parkland campus university located in south west London within walking distance of the historic royal park of Richmond. In 1625 King Charles I brought his court to Richmond Palace to escape the plague in London and turned the area into a park for red and fallow deer. London is a large city comprised of many different neighborhoods with Westminster at the heart of the capital and it’s a only short bus, tube or train ride from Roehampton to all of London’s major landmarks.
