Grab some props and a few friends and head over to the photo booth inside to commemorate the occasion too – tag #WeAreUR for a chance to be reposted.
May 11th | May Day
Crowning the new May Queen or King, this day starts with a beautiful service celebrating students past and present. Held at our longest-running college, this celebration of Whitelands fundraises for charity and is not to be missed.
May 11th | Froebel v Digby
Arguably the ultimate college rivalry, Digby and Froebel go head to head in their annual football match at Sutton FC. Starting with the infamous water fight, this event is a decades-old Roehampton tradition that shouldn’t be missed.
May TBC | Southlands v Whitelands
Whitelands and Southlands battle it out on the football pitch to prove their worth in this annual match. Held on Parkstead House lawn, come down to support the men’s and women’s teams’ matches.
