Beautiful campus, great facilities and a really great overall feeling for the lifestyle. But I had a nightmare experience with the accommodation.
I stayed at Spring Mews, where I experienced strange men being allowed to walk into my flat, and more constant intrusion. Unkept promises and very rude staff. There were maybe around 3 members of staff who were kind and understanding but the rest were awful. No aircon or heating in my room for the entire year. Anything I’d report as faulty would never get fixed, or if it did it wouldn’t be done to a basic standard.
Misleading prices for the rooms. Myself and another paid the same amount as everyone else but received box size rooms whereas others got extra big rooms.
Roehampton is a gorgeous campus with amazing places where you can take a book to wind down a little or hang out with your friends or simply relax with a cup of coffee/tea in hand. The library is well stocked and if you study dance you’d be happy to know that the resources are endless. Roehampton excels in theory however there are certain practice modules within the university that do lack energy and could you with a revision and pushing of students to truly do well in the practice sector as they do in the theoretical. That said trust that as a student you will have an on campus experience that you will treasure for the rest of your life.
On another note living in the off campus accommodation that this university offers, as an international student it allowed me to live in central London and made it easy to commute between the accommodation and the university itself.
