Places of worship

The University of Roehampton is home to students from over 140 nationalities which ensures a diverse and lively environment on campus. We have students from a range of different faiths studying with us.

On campus, we have 2 Muslim prayer rooms, a Muslim faith advisor, a Hindu faith advisor, a Rabbi and Christian Chaplains.

Off campus, London caters for many different faiths and there are many different places of worship nearby depending on your requirements. We’ve listed a small selection below.

For many students, starting university means living away from home for the first time. This prospect can be both liberating and intimidating – especially if you are new to the UK. Most international students coming to Roehampton choose to stay in our university accommodation. Living in halls offers you independence, within a safe and supportive environment.

Our Accommodation Office will be able to help you to organise your accommodation, whether you choose to live on-campus or off-campus.
