    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.

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

Students attending Westminster or King's College will live in independent or university sponsored resident halls located off campus. It is common for students to experience 30-45 minute commutes between their dorm and campus. The dorms offer shared kitchens on each floor, and laundry facilities are typically available for an additional cost.

You will pay a $300 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.

Semester & Academic Year students studying at Westminster can expect housing to be allocated based upon the campus(es) in which their courses are taught. Students enrolled in two or more courses taught on the Harrow Campus can anticipate residing on the Harrow Campus located in Northwest London. Please contact the London Program Manager for additional information.

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 $300 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. 

Independent Housing

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.



ISA excursions allow you to explore the timeless, quaint, and historical landscape of the United Kingdom that you may not have the chance to visit on your own. One excursion to either Brighton & the Seven Sisters or Windsor is included in this program. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to take part in cultural activities offered by the ISA resident staff while in London. Please know that these destinations are subject to change.

Brighton & Seven Sisters

Breathtaking and endless sea views await at Seven Sisters, a panoramic series of white chalk cliffs prominently positioned along the English Channel. Spend the morning walking the lush green pastures atop the cliffs or head down to the rocky beaches below to explore the coastline and cliffs at sea level. Travel West along the sea to the popular coastal town of Brighton. 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.

Windsor Castle

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. While at Windsor Castle take witness to the Changing of the Guard ceremony, visit the burial sites of Charles I and Queen Elizabeth II, relive the pomp and circumstance of the royal weddings, or simply wander the historic grounds. 

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, a show at The Globe Theatre, River Thames boat tour, stroll through Borough Market, and a tour of the Tower of London.
