    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.

Housing

Living in ISA housing will give you the opportunity to experience aspects of the British lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average tourist. Uncovering the uniqueness of your surroundings will help you to feel right at home. No matter which type of housing you choose, 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.

Apartment

Apartments are a great housing option if you are seeking complete independence during your time abroad. Apartments are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, and availability is limited. Rent and utilities are included in the program price, and each apartment is fully furnished. The apartments are located in Notting Hill and Mile End. Apartments typically house three to four ISA students, with shared room occupancy. Meals are not included but laundry machines are available for use at no extra 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.

The residence halls at Westminster and King's College are located off campus, anywhere from half a mile to three miles from the respective campuses. The 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.

Excursions

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.

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.

Bulgaria & Greece

Immerse yourself in the breathtaking scenery of Bulgaria, the oldest nation in Europe, before hopping over to the cradle of western civilization in Greece. On this excursion, you will learn about the culture and economy of both countries, the impact the European Union and Brexit have on you, and experience some of the best sights and cuisines in Europe.

Cambridge

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.

Canterbury & Dover Caste

Canterbury is the birthplace of the Anglican Church and religious capital of England. It has inspired writers such as Geoffrey Chaucer, Father of English literature, the greatest English poet of the Middle Ages, and author of the famous Canterbury Tales. Then journey southeast to Dover, England's biggest port and most popular point of entry to the British Isles. Immerse yourself in the magnificent scenery surrounding the chalk cliffs aptly named the White Cliffs of Dover.

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

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.

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. Her Majesty the Queen's Royal Standard flies from the Round Tower when she is in residence.
