The University of Greenwich has established a major campus within the newly established Maritime Greenwich World Heritage site, centred on three historic buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren. The headquarters of the university are based here and up to 3,000 students will study on this splendid baroque site. The Maritime Greenwich University Campus will include a new library, the largest in the university, with state-of-the-art computing and learning facilities. Based in a listed 18th Century building, £12 million has been invested to restore it to its Georgian splendour. Student accommodation will be provided above the new Docklands Light Railway station nearby and in the grand surroundings of Devonport House, which will also offer conference facilities and a postgraduate centre.
Greenwich has a fascinating history. Henry VIII, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth I were all born here. The Queen’s House was designed by Inigo Jones for James I’s wife in 1618. The National Maritime Museum has been built around it, while the Old Royal Observatory sits on the top of the hill from where you can enjoy views of the whole of London.
