Studentification of Roehampton…….sign of what’s to come?

Over the past few months posters for music events have been popping up on the Alton Estate. They may have always been popping and only noticed now. Looking at them they seemed aimed at the student market?

Do you think when the student housing is built in the “town centre” that this could be an indication of what residents could see more of? The photos below were taken near to Whitelands College……..

These photos are of the phone booth in front of the post office on Danebury Avenue.

These photos are by Holyborne Avenue 2-24 (even) with the Whitlands campus student housing in the background (for the first two photos that is).

  1. Party Pooper ?

    Sometimes, it’s enough just to stand in the queue to pay in the Co-Op of an afternoon, when you find yourself surrounded by a gaggle of teenagers already half-drunk and about to buy more drink . . . . It will certainly ramp up a notch (or two) if if hundreds more students are accommodated in the centre.
