    I went to the open day yesterday and sadly, Roehampton isn't for me. now I have to seriously rethink my options. Quite upset about it because I was really hoping to have Roehampton as my insurance choice.

    I loved the main campus, it was set on beautiful grounds and got a good feel for it. But then I went over to Whitelands campus where I will be as ill be studying psychology. I really didn't like the location, its nothing at all like the main campus, I didn't have much going on there. The area seemed quite run down and was right in the middle of a high rise council estate. I didn't get the same good feeling that I did at Frobel and I didn't feel all that safe walking alone to and from the station which is about half an hour walk away. Especially when it starts getting dark.
    I think you just know if something is right for you, and sadly it wasn't for me.
    This is just my own personal opinion.

    Fair enough. I'll be doing business management which is in the new building if I remember correctly. At least you went to the open day and realised it wasn't for you before you chose it

    Yeah, I'm glad I did. I think if I was spending most of my time in the main campus id be happier. But id be spending all my time over at whitelands. Its a big decision and it needs to be right, you have to be happy and excited to go there.
    Where else have you applied?

    I'm in my third year at Roehampton, as a biomedical science student I also study on Whitelands. It's really not as bad as it seems, the grounds aren't much different to that of main campus, the 'high rise council estate' isnt so high rise, and a large number of those properties are actually occupied by students at Roehampton. There is a little parade of shops, something that main campus doesnt have. In terms of getting to the train station, there are always people around, the university have security 24/7 too. You do not need to walk to Barnes station, the 72 or 265 bus stop right outside it.
    I think Roehamptons research reputation and the constant increase in funding should push you to reconsider.

    Do you know if anyone studies business management because I can't find any threads about it?

    Yeah there's a separate building on main campus for business, I don't know anyone who studies it though,us scientists are segregated.

    Thanks for the input but I really didn't like it at all. Compared to other universities I have visited and had offers from I much prefer those to Roehampton.
    I didn't mean to offend students currently at or applying, as I said its my personal opinion. I live outside London in Surrey and compared to the quiet towns and villages here it did seem quite a run down area and one that I don't feel I would be happy in. I wasn't blown away by the subject talk, or the welcome talk either, it all seemed a little lacking in passion and a bit fumbled together at last minute.
    As I said, its my personal opinion which everyone is entitled to.
    Also, I'm a mature student so won't be living there, I'll have to commute in everyday and the journey is longer than I had expected. I have offers from Royal Holloway which is a 5 minute drive from my house and in my opinion a nicer, better university.

    Everyone's entitled to their own thoughts and opinions. Oh well, at the end of the day, if you feel Roehampton isn't for you then it isn't. At least you got to check it out at the open day, only that way you will surely know if the uni is for you or not.
