    I'm typing this very message from the comfort of a Lee house room
    Kingston has a few nice places, but mostly you will have to venture into London
    Hope you enjoy it here

    Was the campus hard to get to? as heard it doesnt have a tube station. They might do, that would make the decision easier if they do.

    flowermaster91 - Have you seen the campus before and is it your frim choice?
    The nearest tube station to Roehampton is probably East Putney - which is the district line according to my local knowledge.

    Should be a half hour walk from the station to the uni.

    The best way to get from the uni to Putney Bridge is the 72

    Yeah...it's not so bad as long as you're sensible though, no wandering round on your own at 4am or anything lol. I'm in a house next to Whitelands next year so will be an experience!

    IT's seriously not that bad in Roehampton. I lived in Whitelands for two years and there was never any real trouble, and pretty much none that involved students. I moved over to South East London after my degree and many of the estates there are real holes compared to Roehampton, and genuinely are places where you wouldn't go out at night. Seriously, Roehampton is a *very* tame area, as long as you use a bit of common sense as to where you go and when you go there - as you should when you live anywhere. It's not the most attractive place and a lot of the locals look like neandertals, but trust me, it's not a bad place to live. I'd MUCH rather live there than in some of places where the halls for the other London based universities are.

    I live there, it was only built in 2004 so it's one of the newest on campus. The rooms are spacious and the kitchen huge with a nice seating area. 8-9 people per flat. The en suites are nice, and if you're lucky enough (like me) to have a disabled room then the en suites are huge with a double shower
