Summer in England: Roehampton University

About the Program

Roehampton University boasts a 175-year history with roots in the Methodist tradition. Situated on a beautiful 64-acre residential campus, Roehampton's historic buildings stand alongside modern, cutting-edge facilities, including a new, state-of-the-art library. The residential nature of the campus helps to provide a close-knit community for students.

At the same time, the campus is located in the heart of southwest London, giving students the best of both worlds: the community feel of a traditional university campus, with the culture and nightlife of one of the great cities in the world.
