Campus and Crime Map

Student Accommodation

  • New students are guaranteed a place in a hall of residence provided they meet certain conditions. They must be a full-time student attending the University of Greenwich for the first time, the accommodation application must be received by the relevant deadline, and students must be enrolling on a full-time course of study for the entire academic session at one of the university's three campuses (Avery Hill, Greenwich or Medway).
  • Avery Hill and Medway accommodation is located on campus a few minutes' walk from teaching and leisure spaces. Students living at Avery Hill who study at Greenwich Campus can take a free shuttle bus that connects the two sites, taking about 20 minutes. Greenwich Campus halls are all located within a 15-minute walk of university teaching and leisure spaces.
  • All university-managed accommodation is self-catering. Halls have single study bedrooms with shared kitchen facilities and most have en-suite bathrooms. Some halls in Greenwich also offer a limited number of two-bedroom and self-contained studio style flats. Internet access is included in the hall fees.

Accommodation Costs

Self-Catered from £4,590 to £10,926 per year

Student Life

  • City Population: 8,673,000
  • Student Population: 306,000
  • London is ranked as one of the best cities in the world for students, as well as one of the most diverse. It is also an ideal base when looking for work experience or a first graduate job because major firms have global or regional headquarters here, including HSBC, BSkyB, Aviva and Unilever.
  • The Medway Towns of north Kent are about 30 miles from central London. They have a rich maritime history, and plenty of shopping and entertainment options, and are within easy reach of pretty seaside towns such as Whitstable.

Culture and Nightlife

  • London has it all – a vibrant and varied nightlife, top theatre, sport and music venues, and world-class museums and galleries – most of which are free. It's a top shopping destination, attracting visitors from all over the world and has thousands of acres of parkland and open spaces when you need a break from city living. 
  • The Shoreditch and West End areas of London are popular destinations for student nights out, but there are also plenty of local hangouts all over the city.
  • The Medway Towns of Rochester, Chatham and Gillingham have lots to keep students entertained, from festivals and gigs to nightclubs and restaurants. Chatham Maritime, a retail park with a nine-screen cinema, bars, restaurants and outlet stores, is just five minutes' walk from Medway Campus. 
  • A popular hangout on campus is the Deep End. It's a social space shared with the University of Kent, with lots happening – from music and comedy events to quiz nights, film screenings and club nights.

Travel

  • Avery Hill Campus: three train stations are nearby, with journeys to central London taking around 30 minutes. A free shuttle bus in the morning and late afternoons takes students to and from Falconwood station, otherwise it's a 20-minute walk to New Eltham station or 10-minute bus ride to Eltham station.
  • Greenwich Campus: three train stations are nearby, with journeys to central London of about 25 minutes. All three stations are a short walk from the campus.
  • Medway Campus: Chatham town centre is a five-minute bus ride away from the campus and Rochester is about 15 minutes away by bus.
  • Student transport: the university operates services during the day, Monday to Friday. They include a free intercampus bus between Avery Hill and Greenwich, a free shuttle bus between Falconwood station and Avery Hill Campus, and a bus service between Medway Campus and the two London campuses, which charges a small fee.
  • London has an extensive public transport network both within the city and to major cities and airports. Chatham has regular trains to London, Ashford International (for European destinations) and other Kent towns.
