Commuting to university

If you plan to travel to university each day, we'll make sure you get the most out of your time here. Over a third of our students commute to university so you'll have lots of potential travel buddies.

Where we are

We have three campuses: Greenwich and Avery Hill in south-east London and Medway in Kent.

Our Greenwich Campus is in the heart of Greenwich, close to central London and a few miles from Avery Hill Campus in Eltham. The Chatham Maritime area is home to our Medway Campus.

Bursary for commuters

If you want to live at home and travel to university, our commuter bursary could help you save up to £1,000 a year on your travel costs.

It's available on a first-come, first-served basis, so make sure you apply for it early. Find out if you're eligible.

Plan your journey

It's easy to reach all of our campuses. Use a travel app like Citymapper to find the best route.

It's worth trying out different routes until you find the best one for you. (There may be slightly longer routes that are cheaper, for example.)

Feel at home on campus

There are lots of places to study, chill and socialise between lectures on each campus, as well as our friendly student centres.

Our libraries are open until late, you can book rooms for group study, and there are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat.

Student discounts galore

You can get 30% off your London travelcard with an 18+ Student Oyster photocard and one-third off most train fares throughout the UK with a 16-25 Railcard.

If you're studying at Medway, the Arriva student saver ticket offers a huge saving on bus journeys to university and the local area.

University buses

Our frequent and hassle-free inter-campus bus service could be part of your daily commute. Journeys are either free or much cheaper than alternative ways of getting to uni.

Parking at uni

You can park at our Avery Hill and Medway Campuses. Check out the options and find a payment method and ticket type that are right for you.

Car share

We're part of Unishare, a car sharing scheme that can hook you up with potential drivers and passengers near you. It's free to join and a great way to save money on travel costs.

Sharing your commute can also turn a dull drive into a lively one. Plus you'll be doing your bit to help cut congestion and pollution.

Discover Greenwich mobile

Our Greenwich mobile app gives you everything you need while you're on the move, from campus maps and inter-campus bus times to lecture timetables and a directory of university phone numbers and email addresses.

You can also check your library account, search for a book, find out where your nearest available computer is, manage your studies and find out what social stuff is happening.
