The Avery Hill Campus consists of two sites, Mansion Site and Southwood Site, both of which are located in the 86-acre Avery Hill Park in Eltham, south-east London. Only a few minutes’ walk apart, these two Victorian sites house some of the best teaching, living and sporting facilities.
For over 80 years the campus was home to Avery Hill Training College, some of whose 19th- and 20th-century buildings are listed by English Heritage, while on Mansion Site there is a beautiful library housed in a former ballroom.
Students can use computing and laboratory equipment, lecture theatres and a TV studio with 1,000 square feet of floor space. The library has an extensive collection of books and journals and its staff provide expert media support. The university bookshop offers a wide range of course texts and has an online service for ordering over the Internet.
A £14 million project to improve facilities on campus has brought two new buildings to the Southwood Site. The David Fussey Building is home to a sports and teaching centre with a multi-purpose sports hall for staff and students and a 220-seat lecture theatre. The upper floors include four clinical skills laboratories, which replicate NHS wards, allowing trainee health professionals to get real hands-on experience.
A piazza-style courtyard, with wide, curved steps linking upper and lower levels, will offer ample social areas. The new Mary Seacole Building is the main base for the School of Health & Social Care and has teaching space for all Schools on campus.
The village complex on Southwood Site offers accommodation, a general shop and a launderette, plus nearby sporting amenities for tennis, rugby, football and cricket. ‘The Dome’ in the centre of the complex, houses a food outlet and a gym. Mansion Site has a café, a canteen and general shop.
