Southlands College, in Roehampton[1] in the London Borough of Wandsworth, is one of four colleges at the University of Roehampton[2] and is the location of the University’s Business School and its Department of Media, Culture and Language.[3]

It was established by the Methodist Church in 1872, originally in Battersea, as a teacher training college for women and became coeducational in 1965.[3]

In 1975, the college became part of the Roehampton Institute of Higher Education, which became Roehampton University in 2004.

The college includes Mount Clare House, a grade I listed building designed by Sir Robert Taylor,[4] and a Methodist chapel.[5]
