Digby Stuart College is one of the four constituent colleges of the University of Roehampton.

The college was established in 1874 as a women's teacher training college by the Roman Catholic Society of the Sacred Heart, an order of French religious women who settled at Roehampton in 1850, having first arrived in England in 1846. The college was named in honour of Mother Janet Stuart and Mother Mabel Digby.

1975, the college became part of the Roehampton Institute of Higher Education (which later became the University of Roehampton).

Currently, approximately 2,000 of Roehampton's 8,000 students, are assigned to Digby Stuart College with about 450 living on the campus.
