Which accommodation is best for a sociology student? (preferably not one overcrowded with girls, went to boarding school and I’ve been there done that)

Hi!

Sociology is part of Digby Stuart College, so plenty of your course mates will choose to live in either Elm Grove, Lee, Bede, Newman, or Shaw - the Digby accommodation.

When applying for accommodation, you can specify if you would prefer an all-female flat, but without specifying, it is automatically assumed that a mixed flat would be suitable.

Hope that helps!

In the Newman accommodation (the single room £120 a week), is there a desk included? And is there a sink in the bedroom like a lot of the other single accommodation rooms? I can't seem to find pictures or anything of it anywhere and I didn't get to visit on the offer holder day to see so if you have pictures or videos of Newman so I know what to expect it would be greatly appreciated haha, but no worries if not!

Hello!

Yep, there is a desk and sink in each room.

Newman is very similar to Bede, and if you go to our Instagram account, @uni_roehampton, we have a video of a typical Bede room to help you visualise where you might be living next year!

If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Hello!

For help with this query, please contact your personal tutor, or Finola Farrant, Head of Social Sciences, at [email protected]. Cases are considered on an individual basis, preventing us from offering generalised advice.

Good luck!

Hello,

Timetabling changes each year, and is personalised. Students can often begin to view their timetables towards the end of the summer break, but these timings are subject to change, as timetables are finalised in September. When available, you will be able to access your timetable on the student portal.

If we can do any more to help, just let us know!

Hi, I was wondering how the university calculates each students classification. I did really well in third-year but I didn't do so well in second-year as I got a third in 2 modules. Will they ignore the 2 thirds I got in second-year, or will they only ignore my lowest grade from second-year to calculate my overall grade ?

I study criminology and for my course in roehampton they get your 10 best modules and you can drop 2 from second year so you can choose to only have 4 looked at from second year and the rest from third! Hope that helped, you can look at the marking here
