The University of Greenwich offers the best of both worlds, city and country. As a student you are on the doorstep of London, but with the cream of Kent - rolling hills, pub-to-pub walks, seaside resorts and historic sites - not far away.
Education is about breadth as well as depth. It is about places and people, sights and heritage as well as books and keyboards.
The university has three campuses: Avery Hill, in the south-east London district of Eltham; Greenwich, in the historic London borough; and Medway, which is in Chatham Maritime, Kent.
Diversity and distinction
The university is proud of its diverse student body. People from more than 100 countries choose to study at Greenwich, part of an international student community of 4,000. Services for students with disabilities or who have dyslexia give support to more than 1,000. Students benefit from a research environment where staff share their expertise and specialist facilities. At Greenwich they set high standards for teaching quality and provide professional training opportunities for all lecturers. They also measure students’ views on their services through the annual student satisfaction survey, and if shortcomings are found they address them.
Each year the university offers its most distinguished buildings as part of the London Open House architectural festival, an event enabling the public to appreciate some of the capital’s architectural gems.
The university also takes part in the annual Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, a celebration of music, theatre, dance and other performing arts in and around the borough. Our ongoing support of Black History Month has brought a range of special events to the Greenwich Campus, including talks, presentations and exhibitions.
Students and staff have the opportunity to engage with the arts by performing with the university band, which plays music from the Swing era, and with the university choir.
