    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 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.

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.
