About the Greenwich Campus

Our riverside Greenwich Campus is surrounded by the greenery of Greenwich Park and is located close to central London.

Greenwich Campus sits on a World Heritage Site and is located in the heart of Greenwich, south-east London. The neighbourhood has a lively atmosphere but is away from the hustle and bustle of the city, making it the ideal place to study.

The campus is surrounded by historical landmarks, as well as Greenwich Park and a selection of bars and restaurants. Many sites around the campus have been used as sets for films, such as The King's Speech, Les Misérables, Four Weddings and a Funeral, and The Queen.

Facilities at Greenwich Campus

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.

Our 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.

Student life at Greenwich

Greenwich is packed with pubs, bars, restaurants, and live music venues.

One of the world's largest music arenas - the O2 - is based in North Greenwich. The likes of Ed Sheeran, Rhianna, 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.
