University of Greenwich



The University of Greenwich offers the best of both worlds – city and country. As a student, you are on the doorstep of London, but with the best of Kent not far away. Our two London campuses are Avery Hill, in the district of Eltham, and Greenwich, in the Royal Borough. Medway Campus is in Chatham Maritime, Kent. The university traces its roots to 1890, when Britain’s second polytechnic was opened near the Thames at Woolwich. An innovator from the start, the polytechnic pioneered the country’s first part-time day-release and sandwich courses. Over the years, many specialist organisations have joined the institution, giving it diverse strengths such as teacher training, architecture, engineering and history. We were awarded university status in 1992.
