At the University of Greenwich the past, present and future come dramatically together, making it one of the most vibrant and richly varied places in which to study. Housed in some of the country's most elegant buildings the university is steeped in history. Today, a rich blend of around 20,000 students including over 4,000 international students from over 100 countries study a wide range of programmes with us. Students find well equipped laboratories and lecture theatres with library and computing facilities on every campus.
There are also sporting, social and cultural activities to enjoy.
