The University of Greenwich has three magnificent, historic campuses in south-east London and Kent.
Avery Hill Campus
Avery Hill Campus comprises Southwood Site and Mansion Site, both situated in the 86-acre Avery Hill Park in Eltham, south-east London. A green oasis in a busy city, the campus combines the grace of a Victorian mansion with the best of modern teaching, living and sporting facilities. A £14-million development project has brought two new buildings to the Southwood Site: David Fussey Building, which is home to a sports and teaching centre, a 220-seat lecture theatre and a multi-purpose sports hall, and Mary Seacole Building, which is the main base for the School of Health & Social Care and provides teaching space for all Schools on campus. The Student Village on Southwood Site is the social centre of the campus and has a restaurant, convenience store and gym. It also houses accommodation for the 1,200 students who live on site. Mansion Site houses computing and laboratory space, lecture theatres and a newly refurbished TV studio. There is also a well-stocked library and the Winter Garden, a magnificent hothouse containing tropical trees and plants.

The campus is based on the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, a World Heritage Site on the banks of the River Thames in London. The site also houses the tourist attractions of the Painted Hall and the Chapel of St Peter and St Paul, which form the magnificent backdrop for university awards ceremonies. Greenwich is the university’s largest campus and is centred on three baroque buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren at the end of the 17th century. The London Evening Standard newspaper described it as “A university campus to rival … Oxford’s spires or the Great Court at Cambridge … the setting is undoubtedly one of the grandest of any university in the world.” The campus has a library, language laboratories, a 200-PC computing facility and a bookshop. Specialist facilities include laboratories for the School of Computing & Mathematical Sciences, editing suites and a TV studio. Student accommodation and students’ union buildings are a short walk away.

Medway Campus, a former royal naval base, has benefited from £50 million in investment since 1996. Extensive new laboratories and research facilities have been opened, and the university has joined with other educational establishments to develop the campus as a major higher education centre in the region. At the heart of the campus is the Drill Hall Library, a magnificent learning resource centre with an extensive collection of books and journals and over 400 computers. Pilkington Building, next door, has teaching facilities and a bistro-café and is the base for the Universities at Medway Students’ Association, which represents all students on site. The modern facilities include a computeraided design studio, a training dispensary for pharmacy students and specialist test facilities for the Wolfson Centre (part of the School of Engineering). The Centre for Sport & Exercise Sciences, part of the School of Science, has the latest in 3D movement and force analysis equipment, enabling researchers to help professional athletes improve technique and avoid injury. Student accommodation, comprising five halls of residence, is on site.
