The University of Greenwich has invested heavily in its learning and social spaces to offer world-class study facilities in London.
The £76-million Stockwell Street Building opened in 2014 and is now home to the campus library, film and TV studios, and state-of-the-art editing suites.
The University’s new £25-million Dreadnought Building is a central hub for the Greenwich Campus, with further teaching and social spaces. The neighbouring Stephen Lawrence Gallery showcases the work of contemporary artists.
Greenwich Campus also has an on-site bar, two coffee shops, and a number of places to grab a bite to eat.
One of the world’s largest music arenas – the O2 – is based in North Greenwich. The likes of Ed Sheeran, Jay Z, and The Rolling Stones have all played there.
Just outside the campus gates you’ll find the Cutty Sark, a 19th-century tea clipper by the river, and Greenwich Market, where you can find craft items and street food from around the world.
The 74-hectare Greenwich Park gives you access to cricket pitches and tennis courts. Its enormous hill provides spectacular views of London – with the Royal Observatory sitting at the very top.
Medway campus in Kent
Medway Campus has a rich naval history. Its red-brick buildings were previously a Royal Navy base. Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory was built at Chatham’s Historic Dockyard.
The campus also has amazing cafés and bars, including those in Pembroke and Pilkington Buildings. An attractive piazza-style area with outdoor seating is ideal for events. There are also plenty of green spaces, with a tennis court and on-site gym.
Medway Campus has its own local identity, which is shaped by a community of 10,000 students from all over the world.
On-campus accommodation for University of Greenwich students comprises 350 rooms across five halls of residence. Its security team and resident assistants will help you feel safe and at home.
The University’s £4 million Student Hub is a social space which has been designed to enhance your student experience. You’ll have the opportunity to join a range of clubs and societies to balance your studies.
Beyond the campus, the University is a short walk from the Historic Dockyard and the Dockside Shopping Outlet with its multi-screen cinema, restaurants and bars.
You can also find sports facilities at Medway Park, including a swimming pool and an Olympic-standard running track.
Shopping and entertainment at Bluewater are only 20 minutes away.
