University of Roehampton
The University of Roehampton paved the way for women interested in higher education because they were one of the first higher education entities to admit women. Roehampton has a strong academic history dating from the 1840s and is on a U.S.-style campus comprised of four unique colleges. Some of the subjects you can study there include dance, biology, media studies, London studies, and social sciences. Situated in southwest London just south of the River Thames in Zone 3, some popular areas nearby are Putney, Richmond, and Hammersmith. You will love spending time outdoors at places such as Richmond Park, the largest of London's parks, and Wimbledon Common, the site of Wimbledon stadium.

Course Level Recommendations
- ISA offers course level recommendations for the courses listed in the Roehampton Module Catalog. Please note that the course level recommendations are based on the Roehampton module level classifications of a 1, 2, or 3 level, which correspond with the three year bachelor's degree cycle. Courses classified as level 2 and level 3 are considered upper division and recommended for juniors and seniors with 3000- and 4000-level of experience in the subject. These Roehampton and ISA recommendations are intended to facilitate the determination of course equivalencies by advisors and credential evaluators at participants' U.S. home institutions.
- If a student does not have the necessary pre-requisite experience, Roehampton will not approve them for the course. Students will then provide additional module choices.

Living in university dorms will give you the opportunity to experience aspects of the British student lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average tourist. Uncovering the uniqueness of your surroundings will help you to feel right at home. You will commute to class as most locals do, via the underground (aka the Tube), the overground, public bus, or walking. With an open and adaptable mind, the experience of living in another culture can be highly rewarding.
We strive to match your housing preferences with our available accommodations, however, housing preference requests cannot be guaranteed.
Westminster & King's Dorms
Queen Mary, Roehampton & Kingston Dorms
The residence halls at Roehampton, Queen Mary and Kingston are located on campus. ISA does not have control over which dorm you are assigned to by the university. These dorms have shared kitchens on each floor, and laundry facilities are typically available for an additional cost. You will pay a $500 refundable security deposit if living in this ISA housing option. ISA may retain some, or all, of this deposit in the event of damage to property, or if utility usage exceeds the allotted monthly amount.
You may elect to secure housing independently. If you select this option, you will receive a discount equal to the housing portion of the program price.
THERE’S MORE TO DISCOVER WITH ISA
ISA excursions allow you to explore the timeless, quaint, and historical landscape of the United Kingdom (and potentially surrounding countries) that you may not have the chance to visit on your own. While abroad, you will have the chance to go on weekend trips, day trips, and optional trips. The locations below are a sample of included and optional excursions that have run in the past. Please know that these are subject to change.
Brighton is known for several things, including being one the cultural and LGBT capitals of England, inspiration for famous artists and musicians, and its architecture. Some UK polls place it as the happiest and 'coolest' (not a reference to temperature!) city in England, and its name is undoubtedly among the world's most recognizable beach towns.
Cambridge * Optional
Cambridge is a quintessential British town. You'll get to explore traditional British architecture, visit the many street food markets, go for a punt on the river, and see the famous Cambridge University. You will have the opportunity to discover the many religious, cultural, and political influences that helped develop universities all across England.
Stonehenge & Bath
The monument of Stonehenge is one of Britain's oldest Neolithic remnants and easily one of world's most famous sites. It is situated rather mysteriously amidst several hundred burial mounds and at great distances from any logical source for such large stones. After visiting Stonehenge, head northwest towards Bath, an ancient Roman town most famous for the baths constructed here over two millennia ago to take advantage of natural hot springs. Aside from the springs, Bath was home to many famous writers, poets, and celebrities, including the much-beloved novelist Jane Austen.
Stratford-upon-Avon * Optional
On this excursion, you will explore one of the most fascinating and historically significant cities in the UK. The town of Stratford-upon-Avon was chartered in 1196 and is to this day considered a market town, a special municipal status within the UK. It is perhaps most famous for being the birthplace of the one and only William Shakespeare. Additionally, until the Industrial Revolution, Stratford was the gateway to the British canal network and was a town of appreciable importance for commerce and trade.
The town of Windsor is an unparished area in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead in Berkshire, England. It is widely known as the site of Windsor Castle, one of the official residences of the British Royal Family. Windsor Castle itself is the oldest continuously used royal residence in the world. Her Majesty the Queen's Royal Standard flies from the Round Tower when she is in residence.
Cultural Activities in England
The ISA on-site team encourages you to explore culture of England in and around your host city. The team facilitates this by offering a robust calendar of events that showcases what makes England special. These activities vary each term, and previous offerings have included visits to Camden Town, Windsor Castle, the British Museum, a Harry Potter walking tour, and a tour of the Tower of London.
