Welcome to Roehampton University Research Explorer, an open-access portal for research information at the University of Roehampton. The portal displays information maintained in the University’s web-based research information management system, Pure, including details of research active staff, research outputs and prizes, and ensures our researchers can adhere to relevant funder and policy requirements (e.g. HEFCE policy for the next Research Excellence Framework).

Roehampton staff can log in to Pure here.

Pure replaces the previous institutional repository, Roehampton University Research Repository (RURR). All University of Roehampton theses previously held in RURR can now be discovered, searched and browsed here.
