Student life

The College has an active Students' Union team, who organise Welcome Week events and social events throughout the year.  A number of clubs and societies meet regularly, organising their own events and activities.

Our popular annual Symposium Week is a festival, celebration and showcase of what our community has to offer. It is a sharing of thought, research, art, performance and practice by students, staff and invited guests.

There are numerous theatres, event spaces, galleries, museums, pubs and clubs in Central London and nearby Greenwich.  There are also plenty of local pubs, restaurants, cinemas and shops within walking distance of our campuses.  Bluewater, a large out of town shopping centre is accessible by train/bus and includes a cinema and restaurants.  

There are number of large parks in the local area.  Sidcup Leisure Centre is a 2 minute walk from campus, offering a discount to students, facilities include a large swimming pool, gym and classes.

What's it like to live in London?
Check out our region guide

Greater London comprises 32 boroughs, stretching from the City of London – the business centre, where the Gherkin and Walkie Talkie buildings stand – to the surrounding areas of Croydon, Enfield, Hillingdon, and Havering.

It’s big, but it’s easy to jump on a train, tube, bus, or even tram, to experience everything on offer: from food pop-ups in Hackney and Shoreditch, and world famous music acts at the O2, to free museums and West End shows in the middle.

Fabulously diverse and historical, with many industries and businesses based here to kickstart your career, London is one of the most desirable – if pricey – cities in the world.
