Accommodation is guaranteed for all first year Greenwich students. Avery Hill and Medway accommodation is based very close to their respective campuses, while students at Greenwich will have either a 5 or 10 minute walk depending on which rooms are taken.
The University can also help find privately rented accommodation and guarantees that all new students will be offered a place to live, either in a hall of residence or in University of Greenwich-approved housing.
The University of Greenwich has three campuses: Avery Hill in south east London, while Greenwich and Medway are in Kent. Greenwich is the largest campus and situated on a World Heritage Site by the banks of the river Thames. Featuring buildings designed in the 17th Century, it is often regarded as one of the most beautiful campuses in the world.
The Medway Campus is based in a modernised Edwardian redbrick campus, and houses the Schools of Engineering and Science. Like the Greenwich Campus, it has historic connections to the Navy, being located on the former shorebase HMS Pembroke. The Avery Hill campus is situated in Eltham, surrounded by green fields but with easy access to the city.
