The University was founded in 1890 and was marked by continuous innovations, including the introduction of extramural education and sandwich programs.
Being so close to central London, the student lifestyle at University of Greenwich is very much 'where it's at.' The Students' Union provides full listings of things to do and places to see around our three main campuses.
The Greenwich Campus is on a World Heritage Site on the banks of the River Thames. The university's largest campus is centred on three baroque buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren at the end of the 17th century. The Independent newspaper described it as "more breathtaking than the Versailles of Louis XIV".
