Hi guys ,
First post here aha ,
I just got a clearing offer from Roehampton to do Psychology.

Unfortunately the university basically told me that all the on site accomodation is booked up and I'll have to sort it out myself .

Anyone else in a similar situation ?
I'm not exactly too sure about specific areas to be looking in, would love to buddy up haha

Hi there,

I just got a place on Clearing too for Biological Sciences. I'm not sure if I'll accept it yet but I think it's my best option.

Do you know anyone currently studying at Roehampton? I don't really know much about the university even though I live in London and just wanted some insight on what everyone thinks of the uni and its location!

Ahh congrats !
I'm so shocked at how many people are going through clearing , this hasn't been a good year lol. But yeah I feel Roehamptons my best option too , still a BBB university

To be honest , no , one of my friends has an offer and isn't sure about accepting . I'm in the same boat , I don't know much about the university or location either , you living at home ? Or you going to apply for accommodation

I already live in London (Hounslow/near Heathrow) so I'll be staying at home, and the woman I spoke to on the phone said it's just behind Richmond Park, which I'm familiar with. So I think the location is quite nice and scenic especially for London, which is one main reason why I chose it instead of looking at unis like Middlesex/London Met. I got CDD and no one else was accepting me, so this might be my only choice

There were a few people advertising for housemates on the Facebook page: University of Roehampton Freshers 2015 - 2016. You just need to join it and then they'll accept your request, allowing you to post there. I don't think the posts are near the top but one of them was only from last week or the week before. They aren't all freshers, some are returning students that just have rooms to spare, but they seem to be in central locations to the main school beside Froebel. That's a fifteen/twenty minute walk from Whitelands, I'm told, but not unmanageable.

Haha I'm freaking out like crazy ! We still have like a month though !! Trust me I've looked too and I can't find much , Spring Mews is beautiful but £11,000 a year ?! Sod that haha .

And yeah of course , we can deffo look together , I've noticed some rooms for 1 person will be like £100 a week , but if its 2 house mates I've seen some at £150 a week for both people , so £75 each which is really good for London !
PM me a whatsapp number or facebook profile I can get hold of you on

Hope isn't lost just yet. Anyone who hasn't confirmed and paid the deposit by August 21 will have their accommodation given away lol.
