Studying at Greenwich


You will be part of a friendly community that will help you discover new talents and achieve extraordinary things.

With sites in south-east London and Kent, University of Greenwich students can enjoy the best of campus and city living. There are around 2,400 accommodation places on or near our campuses, which means we can guarantee accommodation in student halls for most new full-time students.

Greenwich Campus

Greenwich is our largest campus and its historic buildings on the River Thames are often used as film sets, so don't be surprised if you see a few famous faces around the campus. The Stockwell Street building houses state-of-the-art learning resources, including a high-tech library, film and TV studios, and one of Europe's largest teaching and learning green roof landscapes. The latest addition is Dreadnought Building, a huge teaching, study and social space that will open in autumn 2018 after a £25-million renovation.

The following subjects are taught here:

  • Architecture, landscape and the built environment
  • Business
  • Computing, mathematics and information technology
  • Humanities and social sciences
  • Law and criminology
  • Media and creative arts
  • Some health and education courses, including childhood and youth studies, community studies, counselling, psychology, social work and some teaching courses.

There are industry standard laboratories in science, engineering, pharmacy and natural resources, as well as a huge library. With around 10,000 students from three universities on site, there is a lively community that centres around the Deep End, a social and entertainment space, which also has a quiet study area. Just across the road from the campus is a dockside retail park with a nine-screen cinema, bars, restaurants and outlet stores. There is also a university bus service to the other two campuses, for which a fee is payable.

The following subjects are taught here:

  • Adult nursing and paramedic science

Whichever campus you're based at, we'll make sure you have everything you need to settle in, from student support to advice on fees and finance. Your Students' Union University of Greenwich (SUUG) is also here for you to help you make the most out of your time at the University of Greenwich.
