Our campuses

The University of Greenwich is a guardian of the nation's heritage and our estate includes 16 listed buildings. Within this historic fabric, we offer the latest in modern facilities.


The University's largest campus is at the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and enjoys a splendid position on the banks of the River Thames. It is centered on three baroque buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren at the end of the 17th century.

"More breathtaking than the Versailles of Louis XIV is how The Independent newspaper described it, while The Sunday Times Best University Guide calls it "one of the finest academic estates in the world".

Avery Hill

Set in 86 acres of parkland in south-east London, this campus combines a listed Victorian mansion with a new £14 million development with modern teaching, living and sporting facilities; the beautiful library is housed in the mansion's ballroom. The student village offers en-suite, online facilities and is home to over 1,200 students.


In addition to teaching, the University of Greenwich at Medway is a centre for research and consultancy, offering hi-tech facilities in science, engineering, pharmacy and natural resources research, as well as excellent teaching facilities. The campus which dates from 1903, was formerly home to HMS Pembroke, a Royal Naval barracks, and is based in splendid red brick and ivyclad Edwardian listed buildings. Her Majesty the Queen formally inaugurated a partnership between Greenwich and other universities on the site in 2002. Investment from central and local government, and the Regional Development Agency and the Higher Education Funding Council for England, has helped to create facilities of outstanding quality.
