Academic Communities

This is your one-stop shop to find events and activities that are based around YOU!

Academic communities are groups of students who are brought together by what they are studying. You can find friends in the places where you spend the most time and that’s on campus at your lectures – academic communities provide the opportunity for events and activities to fill your social time with these friends, but also offer co-curricular things to help with your studies.

The most likely group you will join is an academic society relevant to your course, for example, the Law, Business & Economics and Creative Writing societies to name a few. They're run by students and will put on events throughout the year. As well as their events, there will be loads of great things happening on campus during and after lectures for you to enjoy. And remember, these events are put on to make your studies better.

Up at the top, you’ve got a link to our events page, which will have loads of events, lunchtime events, conferences, pub quizzes hosted by a society, pop-up coffee… the list is endless!

Remember, all students can get involved, no matter if you're a placement, mature, a student with caring responsibilities or commuter student. If you can't see something you'd like to get involved in, get in touch with our Academic Communities Coordinator and we can make it happen!  






The University of Greenwich offers a number of scholarships and prizes to help students with the cost of their studies, including several sponsored by donations from alumni and friends. There are some deadlines on these and for 2020, they are Monday 30 November.
