Background and History

Roehampton contains four constituent colleges, all of which started life as teacher-training institutes in the mid-nineteenth century. Whitelands, Southlands and Digby Stuart College were established as Anglican, Methodist and Roman Catholic foundations, while Froebel College was founded to promote the methods of the educationalist of the same name. The four colleges merged together in 1975 and in 2004 the institute became a university in its own right.

By Road: Driving to Roehampton can be tricky given the limited space for parking on campus. Access is easiest via the M4 through Chiswick.
