The University of Greenwich's vision of 'Education Without Boundaries' focused on widening access to higher education, improving social mobility, equality, diversity, and inclusivity. The University has three campuses at Greenwich, Avery Hill, and Medway with an exceptional heritage of historic buildings and landscapes including the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site. The University has a key role to play in supporting social and economic growth in Thames Gateway and in maximizing the long-term benefits for the communities it serves.
Our master planning team led the development of an overarching estates strategy for the University and prepared concept master plans for each of the three campuses. An extensive programme of engagement with stakeholders from across the University community enabled us to develop a vision for the future of the estate with six priority themes and a series of key development principles. This vision framework is supported by technical assessments that have informed the strategic thinking from the outset using our integrated and evidence-led master planning methodology.
The estates strategy and campus master plans provide the framework for a substantial programme of capital investment to 2030 and beyond. This includes the delivery of a new learning, research, and enterprise hub at Greenwich; state of the art learning and research spaces at the Medway campus to support leading edge expertise in science, technology and engineering; and up-graded teaching, simulated learning and research spaces at Avery Hill to meet changing models of health care and education.
These priority projects are supported by a broader programme of proposals across all three campuses that will:
- Strengthen the presence and identity of each campus and the relationships with surrounding communities
- Create new and improved spaces for collaboration across academic faculties and with external partners
- Improve the student, staff and visitor experience through investment in enhanced facilities, improved entrances, better wayfinding and memorable outdoor spaces.
