About the university

About the Avery Hill Campus

Surrounded by green spaces, Avery Hill Campus is located in Eltham, south-east London. It has first-rate teaching and sporting facilities, as well as student accommodation.

Avery Hill is the ideal setting for students looking to study in London. Not only does it have a campus university vibe with teaching and living space, it is also just 30 minutes by train from central London.

Avery Hill Campus comprises two sites: Mansion House and Southwood. Both sit on the edge of Avery Hill Park and are a 10-minute walk from each other.

Facilities at Avery Hill Campus

The campus is renowned for its excellent teaching and sporting facilities. We have recently invested £14 million into two new buildings, four clinical skills laboratories, and two floodlit, all-weather sport pitches at Avery Hill Campus.

It's the place to study if you're considering a career in nursing, medicine, or social work, with a huge health and social care teaching space on campus. Our clinical skills laboratories are designed to replicate NHS wards. It's here that trainee health professionals gain the practical experience they need for real health care environments.

If you're interested in a sports-related career, the David Fussey Building is home to a sports and teaching centre, with a multi-purpose sports hall and a 220-seat lecture theatre. You can also take advantage of our strong partnerships with Charlton Athletic FC, whose training ground is based next to the campus.

Student life at Avery Hill Campus

The Student Village at Avery Hill Campus accommodates around 1,000 students during term time, which gives it a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. On-site facilities include a café, canteen, shop, launderette, bicycle parking, and a fully-equipped gym (fees apply).

There are plenty of pubs, clubs, and restaurants in nearby Eltham. You can also head to the Broadway Shopping Centre in Bexleyheath, or take a bus to Bluewater - one of Europe's largest shopping and leisure centres.

If you're looking for some sporting action, you can watch Charlton Athletic Football Club play at The Valley, or visit Crystal Palace National Sports Centre, which hosts a number of high-profile athletics events.
